The Inside Mail on Four Seasons Seychelles

TS GUIDES – BEN STOKES AND STEVE TAYLOR

We often surf alone or with a few locals. There’s a variety of dreamy waves at Seychelles, which are best during April, May, June and July. You’ll find everything from beginner beachies to long points, and many reefs, slabs and long walls.

Keen for adventure? Charter a luxury boat to Praslin or La Digue islands. There’s a wedgy left reef break on La Digue that can be world class.

At Zez, the guides favorite is the Tasmanian rib fillet and the cheesecake. Tuesday night at Kanal is Creole night, with stalls, local artworks and great local bands performing in traditional attire.

If you’re a beer drinker, the local beer Seybrew is great. Or if cocktails are your style, a Mojito made with the local Takamaka rum. Just chilling at sunset drinks at the Kanal Bar by the beach is the place to be.

Book your spa appointment to finish just before sunset. Then enjoy a bottle of champagne at the hilltop spa where the views are sensational. Hire a car and drive to waterfalls, exotic beaches, cafes and a 9-hole golf course.

If you can arrange a driver to drop you off and pick you up, the one- way mountain hike across the top of the island is sensational. You’d want a local guide.

Snorkel with Wise Oceans. There’s beautiful marine life and the educators can explain interesting facts.

Stand Up Paddle in the late afternoon when you have a good chance of seeing eagle rays gliding around the shallows.

I’m Mike, Tropicsurf’s program manager stationed at our newest property, One&Only Mandarina. Perched amongst an unspoiled pocket of Nayarit’s tropical coastline, Mandarina leaves you feeling as though you’ve entered another world, despite being located just a stones-throw from Punta Mita. I reside at Mandarina with my fiancé Katia who hails from Mexico and together, we’re having the time of our lives as we explore this picturesque pocket of the world and everything it has to offer together.

Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew
Hawaii - What the Ancients Knew

September 16, 2020

The Hawaiian Islands are the most isolated landmasses on the planet. You feel the immensity of that isolation most clearly while bobbing in the ocean there. The cobalt Pacific’s deep-sea currents and swells detonate over Hawaii’s shallow reefs, creating explosive displays of barreling raw nature that’s nothing short of breathtaking.
