The island's industrial section, which includes a brewery and a few brick industries, may be found if you follow the coastline road south from Victoria. You could notice some lagoons in the water to the east, which were actually made intentionally in the 1990s by submerging artificial islands. Some of this area, which are shielded from the ocean by the chain of small islands, appears to be practically dry as the tide recedes. The mangroves that were introduced to this area are now recognised as a fish breeding and protection zone.

Driving from Eden Island to the panoramic viewpoint, La Misere takes just ten minutes. The other islands off the coast of Mahé, as well as Eden Island itself, are beautifully visible from this magnificent vantage point. You'll have a particularly good view of the Sainte Anne Marine Park from here.
The Sans Souci Road, which connects Victoria to the western shore of the island, is definitely worth the drive. This spectacular stretch of the island, which also passes by several famous sites, ensures that your Mahe tour will be filled with highlights.
A full day is typically adequate for people who want to explore Mahé's southern region. Take the four-lane east coast highway and head south through the airport until you reach the island's southern region. Before reaching the seaside and Anse aux Pins, a 5 km (3 mile) bay after which the local community is called, the shoreline here is a little monotonous at first. The coral reef and shallow, sloping beaches that run the length of this coastline are its defining features. At low tide, you can go for a stroll, swimming is only really feasible at high tide.
