Treasure chests and old artefacts from 18th century pirates hidden in the Seychelles - rare discoveries according to hotel owner on Praslin island -

(Seychelles News Agency) - Historians from Seychelles and Europe believe that hundreds of years ago, the Seychelles archipelago of 115 islands were used as a pirate hideaway, and legends of buried treasures still make a good yarn among the islands’ 90,000 inhabitants.
A few locals and foreign nationals have even chosen to make the pursuit of these treasures their lifetime quests.

The attraction of finding famous hidden treasures is understandable, including that of ‘La Buse’ (The Buzzard), also known as Olivier Levasseur, which is now estimated to be worth up to a billion dollars.

Amongst the most tenacious of treasure seekers was Englishman Reginald Herbert Cruise-Wilkins who concentrated his search in the Bel Ombre district, a northern district on the most populated island of Mahe, only to find a few scraps of what could be the famous pirate’s hoard.
