      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      The Seychelles, similar to many exotic holiday destinations, has a number of eccentricities to make it interesting and beyond the norm. Unfortunately, one of these, at the time of writing, is that camping is outlawed. I would be the very last person to encourage any body to break the law, but there are several loopholes in this little law. Firstly, any land that is covered by high tide at any point in the year, is common property. So technically if you look hard enough, at certain times of the month there will be places to camp, but of course, if you get it wrong…well…I hope you like salt. Secondly, there will be plenty of people that would let you camp on their land. The best thing to do is if you befriend some people, suggest it to them. However, DO NOT ASSUME, ask permission. Some Seychellois do not think kindly of trespassers. You have been warned. Another problem that you may encounter is theft. As petty theft is common in the Seychelles, you must be careful of the belongings that you leave in your tent. I, for one, wouldn’t leave anything lying around. If I did, I wouldn’t expect it to be there upon return. Use your common sense. If you truly want to camp during your stay in the Seychelles, then take your gear, but also look for alternative accommodation, just in case!
