Seychelles is divided into 25 districts. All are located on the Inner Islands; the Outer Islands (Zil Elwannyen Sesel) are not part of any district. Eight of the districts make up Greater Victoria, 14 are located in the rural part of the main island Mahé, two on Praslin, and one on La Digue (including respective satellite islands). La Digue also includes some distant islands northwest of Mahé (Silhouette, North Island) and the coral islands in the north of the Inner Islands (Denis, Bird).

The capital Victoria consist of parts of the districts English River, Saint Louis and Mont Fleuri.

Between 1991 and 1993, the originally 23 districts were local government units with elected councils. Since then, they have been governed by government-appointed administrators.[1]

In 1998, two new districts, Roche Caiman and Les Mamelles were created mostly from reclaimed land and from parts of Plaisance.
