Culture and history info

Ste.Anne island is the site of the first French settlement in 1770, a courageous undertaking as the island was surrounded by swamps teeming with crocodiles.  Dominated by a  hill rising to 246m and surrounded by thick tropical vegetation, Ste.Anne served as a base for the Royal Marines (during World War II), who assured the defense of Victoria, the capital of Seychelles. Remnants of the cannons used can still be found on the island.  In the early decades of the 19th century it was also the base for whaling activity in the Seychelles.  Ste. Anne hosted the headquarters of the Marine Parks Authority in 1996-2001, as well as the Shoals of Capricorn Programme (Sept, 1997 – 2001).  Nowadays, the island is occupied by a  five-star hotel and access is restricted. The island remains one of the most important nesting sites for hawksbill turtles in the granitic islands, requiring restriction of some beaches during nesting season. This is indeed a remarkable history book that is still unfolding its golden pages.
