Photos - Mahé (Seychelles) 

With its area of 150 km2 Mahé is the main island of the Seychelles, an archipelago nation of about 150 islands scattered over 1,400,000 square kilometres of warm crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean.

About 90 percent of the Seychellois population is living on Mahé, a third of them (25000) in the capital Victoria. Mahé is granitic and covered by tropical forest with rare enemic plants, such as the Jellyfish tree or the carnivorous Seychelles Pitcher plant. The highest mountain of Mahé is Morne Seychellois (900 m). Mahé was a French possession until 1814 when it became a British colony. Only in 1976 the Seychelles became an independent nation.
