Port Glaud is the last settlement in the far north west of the island, and is a peaceful, sleepy village spread along a long waterfront. The town beach is pleasant enough with views of the nearby islands of Conception and Sainte Therese, but if you're staying here you're most likely to want to visit the Port Launay beach for swimming and snorkelling, just north of the Constance Ephelia.
There are a few takeaways in town and a number of shops (one of which has the best view from a car park in the world!), and from the church it is possible to walk to a nearby waterfall. You may need a guide to find it, but there are plenty of people willing to show you in exchange for a tip if you ask opposite the church.
Port Glaud is also at the foot of the beautiful Sans Souci mountain pass, and close to the tea factory and Mission Lodge viewpoints. The mountains of the Morne Seychellois National park make a great backdrop to views in almost any direction along this stretch of coast.
