Silhouette Island is in the Seychelles. Just north is North Island, an exclusive resort.

Understand[edit]

Silhouette Island is largely uninhabited, but has one luxury hotel and one lodge on it. A system of trails allow visitors to explore the largely deserted beaches, while golf carts provide transportation from the dock to the hotel. A small community containing a dive shop (and little else) makes this a pretty remote destination.

Get in[edit]

To get to this island from Mahe, there are 3 scheduled crossings, 9AM, 2:30PM and 5PM.

To return from Silhouette, there are crossings at 5AM, 11AM and 4PM.

Get around[edit]

Walking is the main mode of transport. There are also bicycles available, and Hilton resort staff are able to give you lifts on their golf buggies.

Do[edit]

Buy[edit]

Buying clothes and swimming gear is exorbitantly expensive on this island. It's much better to buy all needed goods on the main island, or in your outgoing airport.
