Introduction to Holidays in the Seychelles

Seychelles photoThe Seychelles promise adventure and breathtaking natural beauty in pristine surrounds still virtually untouched by man. The Seychelles consists of 115 islands that lie just South of the Equator and East of Kenya and they stretch like an array of jewels in the Indian Ocean.

These beautiful islands are one of the World's most romantic destinations. They cast a siren-like spell over everyone who experiences its crystalline turquoise sea washing the pristine coral reefs and the powdery beaches that encircle the vast granite pinnacles which emerge from the verdant green rainforest.

The Seychelles boast two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Aldabra, the world's largest raised coral atoll and home to 150,000 giant tortoises and a plethora of distinct flora and fauna; and, Vallée-de-Mai on Praslin Island, the only place on earth to find the fabled Coco-de-Mer (world's heaviest seed), and the rare Black Parrot.

Some of the activities available on the islands include: bird watching, snorkeling, scuba diving (especially on the reefs around North Island and Silhouette Island), nature walks, mountain biking, windsurfing, sea kayaking, fly-fishing, sailing and more. Whether you are looking for a choice of activities or simply wish to relax at a Seychelles beach resort, this is the ideal year-round destination.
