Mahe Island is a sanctuary of biodiversity, which displays a rich variety of endemic plant species. The Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, may be found on the neighboring island, Praslin, but its influence extends to Mahe. It's home to the iconic koko de mer palm, producing the world's largest seed, a proud symbol of Seychelles.



The coastline of Mahe Island is covered with soft, white-sand beaches and surrounded by clear blue waters. Anse Intendance, Beau Vallon, and Anse Major are just a few of the amazing beaches offering places of relaxation. The island's coral reefs harbor an underwater paradise, inviting snorkelers and divers to explore marine life.



While Mahe's natural beauty is a draw in itself, the island's cultural heritage adds depth to its appeal. The Seychellois people, with their warm hospitality and diverse traditions, contribute to the island's vibrant atmosphere. Visitors can explore local markets, taste Kreol food, and immerse themselves in the lively art scene.



Preserving Mahe is a top priority for Seychelles. Mahe Island has seen a rise in sustainable tourism initiatives aimed at conserving its ecosystems. From eco-friendly resorts to conservation projects protecting endangered species like the Seychelles warbler, the island embraces responsible practices to ensure the longevity of its natural wonders.


Mahe Island is a great example of Seychelles' commitment to preserving its ecosystem. From mist-shrouded mountains to clear beaches and vibrant marine life, this paradise embodies the unity between nature and culture.



Here at Base Isle, we are proud to be part of the effort to preserve Seychelles’ natural beauty and cultural heritage. Base Isle is thrilled to highlight the Kreol culture through not only our clothes in future collections, but through the eco-friendly materials they are created from. The inspiration for this brand is derived directly from the islands themselves, having different collections named after each island. Not only are we proud to be sharing our clothing brand with the world, we will also share the culture of Seychelles to you by supporting small businesses on the islands this year.
