OVERVIEW

The Seychelles is a nation of 115 islands surrounded by the sparkling azure waters of the Indian Ocean. Famous the world over for its sugar-white beaches – including, arguably, the most beautiful beach in the world – as well as for its idyllic tropical climate and warm, friendly inhabitants, the Seychelles is a prime holiday destination for anyone seeking an unspoilt island paradise.

Seychelles holidays offer a wide range of accommodation, ranging from cheap and cheerful guesthouses through to self-catering options and, of course, those 5 star luxury resorts, so finding the perfect place to stay will be no hard task. Of course, then the truly difficult part begins – namely, choosing just what you’re going to get up to during your unforgettable Seychelles vacation. There is so much more to this archipelago than just beaches and waving palm trees; the islands offer a wide range of things to see and do and are big on eco-tourism, boasting a number of reserves and marine parks. These include the likes of the spectacularly beautiful Aride Island Nature Reserve, the renowned Ile Cocos Marine National Park and the Cousin Island Special Reserve, a fantastic eco-tourism attraction.

You may also want to experience the pristine majesty of the Morne Seychellois National Park on the island of Mahé. Take the scenic route from Victoria to Port Glaud, near which you will find a working tea factory where you can take a guided tour and raid the gift shop. During the trip be sure to stop off at Mission for spectacular views, or delve into the forested depths of the park along one of its scenic walking trails. Mahé is also home to a wealth of other attractions, ranging from the Kot Man-Ya Exotic Flower Garden to the stunning colonial Kenwyn House and the atmospheric Bel Air Cemetery.

If you’re visiting the island of La Digue on your Seychelles holiday, be sure to head to the world-famous beach of Anse Source d’Argent to enjoy some breath-taking photo opportunities. After that you can explore the small but beautiful Veuve Reserve and return to a simpler time with a trip to the sleepy little port village of La Passe.

Heading to the isle of Praslin? Don’t miss the awe-inspiring Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site formerly believed to be the original Garden of Eden. Home to the endangered Black Parrot and the extraordinary Coco-de-mer trees this awe-inspiring destination is a must-see and is sure to provide you with an unforgettable experience.
