If you're a good driver, then renting a small car is by far the best way to explore the island and it's surprisingly affordable, especially when compared to the cost of a taxi. Just get a map and go. They drive on the left side of the road in the Seychelles but you'll quickly discover this is more of a suggestion than a rule. Drive carefully and take it slow as the roads are narrow. Our roads are extremely windy. There are a number of car hires in walking distance from us.
You can always find a taxi at one of the hotels near us. We advise if you have an emergency and need to get somewhere, you can walk across to The Coral Strand Hotel to get a taxi. Taxis in Seychelles can be expensive. The rate from Sables d'Or Luxury Apartments to town is around 200 rupees.
As we are near the port and the airport it is extremely easy to island hop to the outer islands. From Beau Vallon it's a 15 minutes journey to the port and 30 minutes to the international airport.
