Seychelles is famous for having some of the best uncrowded and pristine beaches in the world. As you come in to land and catch sight of islands clustered around the island of Mahe, you’ll soon see why.
The three main islands, Mahe, Praslin & La-Digue, each offer something different, plus there’s the exclusive North Island where Price William and Princess Kate had their honeymoon.
A boat trip around the main island of Mahe will have you swooning at the beachside villas you pass, before you land on a tiny island where your boat crew turn into chefs and prepare a barbecue of freshly caught fish wrapped in banana leaves on an old tin barrel. Wash it down with some ice cold beers, your feet tickled by the lapping waves of the Indian Ocean, and you’ll think you’ve landed in heaven. Or explore further on an island-hopping trip by boat, helicopter or plane, to see some of the famous granite boulders reminiscent of Bounty adverts.
There are plenty of things to see and do in Seychelles – like kayaking and scuba diving, golf, or visit national reserves and marine parks, watch giant turtles or visit an artist’s studio, followed by some authentic Creole cooking as you watch a seriously beautiful sunset.
A Few Facts –
A small cluster of islands are in St Anne Marine National Park which protects the diverse marine life there. Daily excursions can be made around these islands where you can experience the underwater world by semi-submersible boats or snorkeling.
