The third largest island in the Seychelles, Silhouette is a mountainous island situated 20km northwest of Mahe. Visitors to the island come by boat (45 mins) or helicopter (15 mins) and are greeted by dramatic scenery on arrival. The waters around the island are a designated Marine National Park and are home to a diverse range of aquatic life. On land the island is rich in endemic flora & fauna and has a few small villages dotted around. The main draw on Silhouette is the Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa – a luxurious property on a great stretch of beach.
