The Seychelles

Go to Travel Planner

A tropical archipelago of legendary beauty overflowing with restful castaway luxury, the Seychelles' exotic charms are hard to beat.

With its near-limitless selection of white sand beaches, invitingly warm seas and untouched rainforest interiors, the Seychelles are an oasis for travellers in search of relaxation, escape and adventure. A year-round destination for sun-worshippers and beach-lovers, the Seychelles' climate is one which is always warm. Comprised of 115 island paradises, each with its own distinct appeal, there are locations enough to please any taste. Deliberate over the more developed allure of Mahé, the unmatched beauty of Praslin's beaches or the unparalleled seclusion offered by smaller hideaway islands, and discover an exotic world teeming with a unique vibrancy and culture.

The Republic of Seychelles sprawls across a span of the Indian Ocean between 300 and 1,000 miles from Africa's exotic east coast. The product of hundreds of years of mainland influences and British and French colonial occupation has combined to create the famous spirited Creole culture which manifests itself in a distinctive exotic artistic and architectural style, colourful carnivals and a tradition of generous hospitality and delicious cuisine. Its capital, Victoria, is one of the smallest capitals in the world, and offers an intimate yet refreshingly lively setting in a region which is otherwise renowned for its seclusion and tranquillity. Sited on Mahé, it serves as the focal point for transportation to all other islands, and is the perfect base for island-hopping tours.

Water sport lovers are spoiled for choice here, with opportunities for snorkelling, diving, paddle-boarding, surfing and kayaking around every corner. Often called 'the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean', a large number of conservation initiatives, UNESCO World Heritage Sites and protected forests and reefs make this destination a true blessing for wildlife enthusiasts. The seas alone play home to migrating pods of humpbacked whales, dolphins, nesting turtles, manta rays and gentle whale sharks, to name but a few.
