Seychelles isn’t exactly known for its raging after-dark culture, but if you look hard enough, you’re bound to find nightlife that suits your tastes. Hotels offer the best selection of bars and entertainment on any of the islands. Live music is popular, as is the local rum. It’s possible to enjoy your night without ever leaving your hotel, many of which also include casinos for a little late-night gambling. Our Forbes Travel Guide editors think some of the best include the Patchouli Bar at Le Meridien Barbarons, which also includes a cigar bar.
If your dancing shoes are calling from your suitcase, Mahe has the biggest selection of Seychelles-style “discotheques”. Katiolo offers an open-air dance floor that pumps the latest international hits into the night, but don’t let the casual atmosphere fool you — there is a strict dress code including no shorts and flip flops.
