Seychelles

A unique cluster of unspoilt tropical islands

This collection of 115 idyllic islands is scattered throughout the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean and certainly lives up to the name it was once given – “The Original Garden of Eden”

You’ll experience the epitome of luxury and idyllic surroundings here with deluxe resorts, powdery white sands, spectacular coral reefs and some of the rarest species of flora and fauna on earth. Rare plant life thrives on this Indian Ocean archipelago: a paradise for birds and naturalists alike whilst deep sea fisherman and divers have found nowhere better on earth! The towering granite rocks set against the striking blue of the sea and white sands of the beach are a sight to behold.

Mahé is the largest island and it’s well worth a visit. Morne Blanc is easily accessible by car or bus and then you can take the hiking trail to the top where you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views over the island. You could also visit the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens where you’ll see coco de mer trees, an abundance of natural flora and fauna and the giant land tortoises.

The second largest island, Praslin is home to the World Heritage listed Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve and the must-see beautiful beach of Anse Georgette where you may be lucky enough to spot dolphins swimming off the shore. Other popular islands are La Digue which has a wonderful nature reserve, Fregate Island and Silhouette Island. Our experienced Travel Experts can help you in choosing the right island and resort for you. There are all-inclusive resorts, ultra luxury hotels, resorts suitable for families and those more suited for couples and honeymooners.

Although there’s plenty to see and do in the Seychelles, you’ll also find it the perfect place to relax and be pampered.  Lay back on the beach and listen to the waves gently lapping at the shore – it’s absolutely blissful. Luxurious spas offer massages, body treatments and rituals which will leave you feeling totally restored and rejuvenated; exactly what you want when you visit an idyllic spot such as this for a well-deserved break.
