Cities in the Seychelles


According to the United Nations Data (↗) website, the SEYCHELLES in East Africa features a population where 53.9% of people live in urban areas (2015 data). Mostly designated as districts, cities in this country are low-populated compared to metropolitan areas in other countries. For example, Seychelles' national capital and most-populated city — Victoria — has a population of about 32,000 residents (GeoFact of the Day's 2017 estimate). Victoria and most other cities are located on the largest island, Mahé. These communities include Anse aux Pines (Cove of Pines; 4,000), Anse Boileau (4,400), Anse Etoile (5,200), Anse Royale (4,200), Au Cap (Cape; 4,500), Baie Lazare, Beau Vallon (Beautiful Valley; 4,300), Bel Air, Cascade (4,500), Grand'Anse Mahé, Les Mamelles, Mont Fleuri, Plaisance (4,000), Port Glaud, Saint Antoine, and Takamaka. Baie Sainte Anne (St. Anne Bay; 7,000) and Grand'Anse Praslin (4,200) are located on Praslin island. La Passe and La Réunion are two small communities (~2,000 population each) on Seychelles' third largest inhabited island, La Digue.
