Seychelles Shopping and nightlife
Shopping in Seychelles
The best shopping options are in Mahé. On the island, Sir Selwyn Selwyn Clarke Market is best for fresh produce and traditional trinkets. The hours are Mon-Sat, 0700 to 1700.
Beyond the market, the best places for local crafts are Cooperative des Artisans (next to the National History Museum) and Camion Hall. Eden Plaza and Kanna Mall are also worthy diversions. If you want to purchase the seed of Coco De Mer, the best place is the Seychelles Island Foundation which sells genuine seeds with a holographic sticker.
Market vendors do not accept cards so you will need to pay for your purchases in Seychelles rupees (SCR). Mastercard, Visa and American Express are accepted in shops displaying the relevant card logo on their doors or windows.
Mon-Fri 0800-1700, Sat 0800-1200. Some shops close for lunch during 1200-1300 on weekdays.
Nightlife in Seychelles
Seychelles is not known for its lively nightlife, but there are a couple of casinos and a few nightclubs on Mahé. Most large hotels and resorts provide some form of entertainment at night.
