A gem in the Southwest Indian Ocean
The perfect place to relax after safari
The Seychelles are an archipelago of 115 coral and granite islands spread like gemstones across a million square kilometres of the southwest Indian Ocean.
Immaculate and un-crowded beaches of powder-soft white sands, a glorious tropical climate and warm turquoise waters make these islands some of the most idyllic holiday getaways in the world. This is where you will find the palm fringed islands that appear in countless magazines and glossy travel brochures; the coral atolls that teem with fish and the remote and romantic beachfront holiday hideaways. Almost half of the Seychelles’ land mass are set aside in nature reserves that protect its unique flora and fauna. Among them are the giant tortoises found only here and in the Galapagos, the famous nut of the Coco de Mer and the towering palm trees of the Vallée de Mai nature reserve and world heritage site in Praslin.
The Seychellois people are an interesting blend of many different races. Representatives of almost every race on earth have at one time or another contributed something of their customs and cultures to the islands – creating the colourful and friendly Creole nation of today. These diverse cultural influences are clearly visible in the architecture, music, cuisine and language of the islands. The Creole cuisine is delicious and healthy, usually consisting of locally grown vegetables, fresh fruits and the fish catch of the day. The islands are ideal for holiday watersports such as windsurfing and sailing, while underwater the marine life is sensational for snorkelling and diving. The larger granitic islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue, which have a more mountainous appearance, offer excellent holiday activities such as hiking, and biking trails.
