The Mission Lookout is an interesting historical place to visit. The view from the lookout point is beautiful but there are many other great look out spots. If you are in the area definitely go and check it out but it’s not a must see.

Great views across the island but the ruins are minimal. Stop and take a look if you hire a car and are passing but I wouldn’t personally recommend making a specific bus or taxi ride to visit. There is information about the site to understand...More

The site itself is well taken care of, but there is not much to see. The weather was cloudy when we visited, so we could not see the scenery from the lookout. If you are already in the area hiking around, it is a good...More

This is an unmissable crossing of the island with spectacular views and it's easy to drive past the Venn's Town Mission sign without going in but you'll be rewarded if you do. Beautiful views and interesting history and some ruins of the mission to educate...More

I came here after hiking first to Morne Blance. The view there is much better than here. The most interesting thing here was the "markings" of the trees.

Free entry to lookout. Had a few interesting fact boards explaining area. And view is superb. Worth the little trip if passing.

Most people stick to the beaches but the mountains in Seychelles are beautiful. We had a hire car. Saw tour buses there. Historically very interesting.

I just witnessed a possible scam at Mission Lodge. And I verified, when I referred it to the hotel where I am staying, that has happened already: We went to Mission Lodge with a rental car at about 5pm and we were the only ones...More

No ticket required. It’s a very small place with a little covered area where you can sit and enjoy the views. The view of the island is great from there so it’s worth visiting
