Discover Baie Lazare

The area of Baie Lazare – about half an hour away from Victoria-Seychelles Airport – was named after the 18th-century explorer Lazare Picault and is full of historic charm.

Sitting in the south-west of the island, it’s a great place to explore on foot. 

You can relax on idyllic beaches before taking in stunning views of the surrounding countryside from the local church tower.
