Hello, my name is Anna. This blog is about all the beautiful islands around the world.

133 mahé

The Republic of Seychelles consists of 115 islands, and this card has travelled from the largest one, Mahé.

The island, named after Bertrand-François Mahé de La Bourdonnais, a French governor of Mauritius, is home to one of the world's smallest capitals — Victoria, and to almost 90% of the Seychelles' population.

As Lonely Planet nicely puts it: “when it comes to wishing for the archetypal idyllic island, it's impossible to think past the glorious bays caressed by the gorgeously multi-hued waters of Mahé. To the northeast, a range of granite peaks, including Mahé's highest point, Morne Seychellois (905m), adds to this vivid panorama. Wherever you're based, paradise lies close at hand.”

This postcard was a lovely surprise from Yves, who works in the tourism industry — I must admit that sharing such beautiful cards is definitely a great way to promote the island. Thank you!

  1. Wow ! Przepiękna kartka i znaczki ! :))

  2. Pocztówka z raju na ziemi:)

  3. Idealna pocztówka jak dla mnie :) Seszele są chyba trudne do zdobycia, dlatego gratuluję serdecznie!

  4. Seszele kojarzą mi się z takim miejscem, które wymienia się, gdy mówimy o rajskich wyspach, palmach itp. Pocztówka jest cudowna.



My big dream is to receive postcards sent from every island in the world (at least those that have a postbox). If you would like to help me, please contact me at letters.from.islands@gmail.com.
