Ste. Anne Island

Sainte Anne Island as seen from Mahé Island

Sainte Anne Island is the largest (2.19 km²) of six islands in Ste Anne Marine National Park of the Seychelles. These six islands are part of the Mont Fleuri District of the Seychelles. It is 4 km off the east coast of Mahé and has abundant tropical vegetation. The highest peak on Sainte Anne is 246 meters (807 feet).

It was first discovered in 1742 by the French explorer Lazare Picault, and the first French settlement in the Seychelles was established here in 1770. In the early 20th century a whaling station briefly operated on the island.

Since 2002 it has been a luxury resort with 87 villas.
