Seychelles

Situated off the East Coast of Africa, the Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands and is renowned for having some of the most spectacular beaches in the world with their azure blue waters and white sand. Famous beaches include the Anse Source d'Argent, secluded Anse Marron, Anse Takamaka and the picturesque Anse Lazio. Mahé, a hub for visiting the other islands, is home to capital Victoria. Other islands include Praslin and La Digue. The various small islands making up the Seychelles offer soft sand, turquoise waters, supreme tranquility and exotic resorts. Revel in the coral-colored sunsets while you enjoy pampering at the spa, indulge in gourmet cuisine or just relax in your well-appointed room. The Seychelles is also considered Honeymooners’ paradise.

It also has the mountain rainforests of Morne Seychellois National Park and beaches, including Beau Vallon and Anse Takamaka. There are also great coral reefs and nature reserves, as well as giant Aldabra tortoises, a very rare animal. You can also embark on aquatic adventures such as surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite-surfing, parasailing, kayaking or night fishing. Healthy reefs, canyon-like terrain, shallow shelves, exciting shipwrecks, impressive granite outcrops and splendid coral gardens give divers and snorkelers almost instant access to a variety of environments. The water is warm and clear, and teeming with life from the tiniest juvenile tropical to the largest pelagic creature, including whale sharks. Whether you're an experienced diver or slapping on fins for the first time, there are sites for all levels.

Things to do
Bag your own beach
Bag your own beach
Snorkelling here is some of the best around and like most beaches it is supervised by the tourist police. They sit under a shady tree, keeping your belongings safe while you swim. There are several picturesque and often empty bays to investigate in the island’s South, it is definitely worth hiring a car – but beware, there are treacherous currents and swimming here is not advised.
Take a hike
Take a hike
The best way to explore is to take a half-day hike along one of the many trails within the Morne Seychellois National Park. Look for tiny frogs hiding in pitcher plants and the harmless endemic wolf snake basking in patches of sun. If you choose only one walk, spend 45 minutes reaching the summit of Morne Blanc. It perhaps has the finest view in the Indian Ocean.
Birds of paradise
Birds of paradise
Life is effortless on La Digue where the boulder-strewn beaches are even prettier than on Mahe. Rent bikes and pedal to Grande Anse where turquoise breakers pummel the beach. Keep an eye out for the Seychelles paradise-flycatcher, an endangered bird of which the locals are deeply proud.
Victoria’s secrets
Victoria’s secrets
Victoria is the Seychelles’ tiny capital. You can explore it in a pleasant two-hour stroll. Highlights include a silver-painted replica of London’s Little Ben – itself is a miniature of Big Ben – and the islands’ Natural History Museum. The streets are rarely busy, except on Saturday mornings and there are many small shops where you can refuel with samosas.
A Cadbury treat
A Cadbury treat
Aride Island is the nearest the Seychelles comes to its pristine state before it was discovered by the outside world. It is one of the finest tropical island nature reserves in the world, bought for posterity in 1973 by British naturalist Christopher Cadbury (of the chocolate-making family).
Sunset strolling
Sunset strolling
Several hotels and some good dive centers are dotted along the beach and you can find a handful of humble but good restaurants. Watch the sun set into the ocean and then try Baobab Restaurant for an excellent pizza. Beau Vallon hosts a lively Wednesday evening market. Stalls serve up curry and chapatis to go.
Weather
The Seychelles’ climate is one which is always warm and does not reach extremes of heat or cold. The temperature rarely drops below 24°C (75°F) or rises above 32°C (89°F). All but the remotest Southern islands lie outside the cyclone belt making Seychelles a year round destination for sun worshippers and beach lovers. It is generally cooler when the North-West trade winds blow during the months of November to March. The sea is generally calm and the weather warm and humid, with average winds of 15 – 22 kilometers per hour.
