Port Glaud is an administrative district of Seychelles located on the northwestern coast of the island of Mahé. On the 15th (Mon), look for gifts at Yve's Souvenir Cachee, make a trip to Victoria Market, then learn more about the world around you at Seychelles Natural History Museum, and finally kick back and relax at Beau Vallon Beach. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: browse the exhibits of Carrefour des Arts, explore the galleries of Michael Adams Paintings Studio, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Anse Intendance.

For other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Port Glaud tour itinerary planner.

Johannesburg, South Africa to Port Glaud is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Johannesburg to Port Glaud due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Johannesburg in April, plan for a bit warmer days in Port Glaud, with highs around 37°C, while nights are much warmer with lows around 30°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Tue) early enough to travel to La Digue Island.
