Visit The Sunny Seychelles

Looking for untouched natural beauty that will blow you away, pristine beaches with no footprints on the white sand, lush tropical vegetation and sparkling seas that are so blue, it matches the sky? You’ll find it all in the Seychelles, an archipelago of 115 tropical Indian Ocean islands that are unique, unspoilt, breathtakingly beautiful and offer private hidden coves for swimming, scuba diving or snorkelling.

Fly o the island of Mahé, which boasts its own collection of secluded beaches reachable either by boat, on foot, or from a private yacht. Mahé and the nearby isles of Praslin and La Digue are the Seychelles’ most popular destinations to escape to, with some of the best and most luxurious resorts in the world. There are plenty more remote islands just waiting to be discovered.

The Seychelles offers an unprecedented water world for you to explore, a fascinating Creole culture and many fabulous experiences just begging to be enjoyed.

Mahé

The largest island in the Seychelles and home to its international airport, Mahé also boasts the world’s smallest capital town, Victoria, filled with colonial mansions. The island is known for its pristine white sand beaches and lush, mountainous vegetation. There are more than 70 beautiful beaches, but the best of the best include Anse Major, Anse Jasmin, Petit Anse and Anse Du Riz. Visit the bustling market in Victoria and the island’s Botanical Gardens to see giant tortoises, Coco de Mer trees and exquisite orchids.

Praslin

The second largest island in the Seychelles, about an hour by boat from Mahé, Praslin is also home to the legendary Vallee de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s one of the only two places in the world, along with the Seychelles island of Curieuse, where one can see Coco de Mer trees growing in their natural habitat and view their enormous fruit, shaped like a woman’s lower torso. Here, visitors can hike one of three prehistoric forest trails to see some rare birds such as the Black Parrot. Praslin also boasts some of the world’s best beaches including Anse Lazio Beach, favoured by none other than Italian designer, Giorgio Armani. Legend has it that Praslin was the original Garden of Eden.
