Pléiades acquired this 50 cm image of Mahé Island on 26 March 2016.
The island is also home to Seychelles' capital, Victoria. It is famous for its idyllic beauty, with 3,000-foot mountains and a number of sandy beaches. Mahé's shores are composed of many plants such as the so-called Jellyfish Tree and rare orchids, which makes it a popular tourist destination.
Besides the scenic views, Mahé is also famous for the Seychelles Natural History Museum, the Botanical Gardens and the Codevar Craft Centre, situated in Victoria.
Part of the island appears in the far right of this image where we can clearly see the Seychelles International Airport.
