Where to Shop and What to Buy in Seychelles

Mahe is the best island in the Seychelles for shopping as 90% of the Seychelles’s population is concentrated on this island. However, instead of mega shopping malls you will find some small interesting shops and markets that are somewhat laid-back.

Some of the specialty shops on Mahe Island deal with locally-made products such as tea and perfume. You will find the flavour and aroma of these products absolutely unique. However, the most well-known specialty shop in the entire Seychelles is Kenwyn House. This structure has considerable historical significance besides being a gem house. The Island of Mahe has the best markets in the Seychelles, such as Sir Selwyn Clarke Market – a lively place where you can buy fresh vegetables, fruit, spices, and fish. The Sir Selwyn Clarke Market area also consists of numerous little gift shops.

What to Buy

Rather as Gaugin sailed to Tahiti in search of inspiration, many artists have been intrigued by the natural beauty of the Seychelles and settled here to follow their calling. Many work from studios which double as retail outlets, so visitors can often meet the painters, sculptors or craftspeople in person. A very broad definition of local handicrafts would run from soap to liquor to a souvenir of the archipelago's stunning beaches - bottles filled with coloured sand.
