This post may contain out-of-date information as some buffets have since closed.

The Buffet of Buffets is an interesting concept in the food scene on the Las Vegas strip. Not from being a new upscale restaurant or novelty dining experience, but rather being one of the most gluttonous events one can attempt throughout the entire city. 

After hearing such rave reviews of the experience, we had to go check it out. So we picked up our Las Vegas buffet passes and went to town, literally!

13 Seychelles Beaches to Explore While in Paradise

The Seychelles beaches are what dreams are made of- with white sand, crystal clear water, beautiful rock formations, and picturesque palm trees.

While this may seem like a wonderful thing, if you're actually vacationing there, it can be a bit overwhelming to try to prioritize which beaches you want to visit.

That's where we come in!

During our two weeks in the Seychelles, we spent time on Mahe, Silhouette, La Digue, and Praslin, and we're here to share our favorite beaches from these four islands. There are lots of different kinds of beaches – some are good for sun bathing, swimming, snorkeling, walking along and exploring, watersports, and the list goes on.

Here we will try to describe the features of each Seychelles beach so you can find the ones that are right for you!

Another point to keep in mind is the time of year that you visit the Seychelles – certain beaches have strong currents at particular times of the year, making swimming dangerous. Others have lots of seaweed during certain months. It's best to do some research about the conditions during the time of year you'll be traveling so you won't be disappointed.

Want to Hike to Anse Major on Mahe? Plan Ahead for This One

The Seychelles are full of world class beaches, many of them easily accessible via roads.

But there are also numerous beaches in the Seychelles that are a little more difficult to reach, ones that you can only get to on your own two feet or via a boat.

We love the challenge that comes with trying to get to this type of beach, and during our recent trip to the Seychelles we did a few short hikes to see some of them- including Anse Major on Mahe island.

Anse Major is considered one of the most beautiful secluded beaches on Mahe, so we of course had to check it out.

But one thing we did not know was how intense that journey would be, and that gives us reason to pause in recommending this hike to others.

Living the Dream loving SaijoThe favorite alcoholic beverage in Japan is most definitely the iconic drink known as sake. Fermented rice in pristine mountain water make up this drink of choice which can range in price of up to $100+ per bottle for the finest choices. The city of Saijo, 35 minutes by JR outside of Hiroshima, is said to produce the finest sake in all of Japan and boasts an impressive 10 breweries! Even more stunning is the fact that 8 of them are within a 45 minute walking path of each other starting and ending at the railway station and offer free tastings for visitors. So in an effort to find my favorite sake and put my liver to the test, I visited Saijo for a mass sake consumption marathon.
