The 115 granite and coral islands that form the Seychelles archipelago are known worldwide as being amongst the most beautiful in the world. With breathtaking lush tropical vegetation, pristine white beaches and deep turquoise lagoons, photographs simply can't do the islands justice.
The Seychelles is made up of two 'types' of islands - the inner group, 41 of them, are granitic and mountainous. This is where the majority of the population, and tourism, is centred including the three main islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. Surrounding these granite islands are several groups of smaller coral islands, 74 of them, which are home to some of the world's most spectacular reefs.
Whilst of course the beaches of Seychelles and the consistently warm and sunny tropical climate are the main draw cards, nature lovers will not be disappointed. Seychelles is renowned as a sanctuary for numerous rare species of fauna and flora. You can explore marine parks, three fascinating island nature reserves as well as the Vallee de Mai nature reserve on Praslin, a UNESCO World heritage site where the world's largest seed - the Coco de Mer double-lobed nut - grows. Expect also to see rare land and sea bords, endemic flora as well as numerous insects and amphibians - Seychelles has the smallest frog and the largest land tortoise in the world.
Dive or snorkel to explore the bountiful coral reefs which are teeming with fish, sea turtles, whale sharks and manta rays. Or, take a helicopter flights to see the stunning Seychelles archipelago unfold beneath you.
Accommodation in Seychelles is amongst the best in the world offering deluxe resorts and hotels, mostly located on the main island of Mahe and the second island of Praslin, as well as eco-retreats on far-flung, private islands.
When you are not lounging on one of the idyllic Seychelles beaches or exploring the natural beauty of the islands, Seychelles hotel activities will keep you entertained - from watersports including fishing, sailing and waterboards, to more tranquil pursuits such as yoga, meditation and spa treatments.
Take it from us your taste buds are in for a treat! Experience the fusion of Indian, European and Creole with spicy dishes and fresh seafood. Seychellois chefs are some of the most talented in the world, so expect only the best.
With swaying coconut trees, the sweet scent of frangipani and the dramatic violet and orange sunsets, holidays to the Seychelles offer pure paradise. They are one of the most romantic spots on the planet to pop the question or enjoy a Seychelles honeymoon after tying the knot. You can even have your Seychelles wedding on one island and then honeymoon on another!
