TAKAMAKA

Andre Gabriel
District Administrator

Takamaka is the Southernmost district of Mahe with an approximate distance of 24 kilometers from Victoria. It is flanked by two other Districts namely Anse Royale and Baie Lazare which means that Takamaka can be reached from these two directions by road transports.
It can be said that the population of Takamaka is sparsely distributed. However, there are some exception to this claim. This is because some of its sub-districts have high population densities with very compact settlement patterns whereas others have very low population densities with a dispersed settlement patterns.
The Takamaka district is also the home of 14 beaches making it the District in Seychelles with the most number of beaches. The notable ones are Intendance and Takamaka Beach.

 • Roche Pigeon: - A large granite boulder overlooking both Anse Forbans and Takamaka. Long ago fisherman used it as a landmark
