The 115 islands of the Seychelles present a wonderful opportunity for a memorable tropical island experience. With some of the world’s loveliest beaches, unspoilt jungles, flourishing coral reefs, UNESCO-awarded nature reserves and so much more, this archipelago in East Africa has all it takes to reel you in for a fantastic holiday in the magnificent Indian Ocean.
The most developed areas for tourists are the inner islands - Mahé, Praslin and La Digue - which include numerous lavish five-star resorts and many alluring beaches.
The largest and most developed island – Mahé - is home to the capital, Victoria, and additionally is the location of the country’s hub airport, Seychelles International Airport. You could spend your time on this island exploring its more than 60 stunning beaches and coves, hiking across the scenic Morne Seychellois National Park or enjoying the thrilling experience of snorkelling with whale sharks.
The second largest island – Praslin – offers a more relaxed setting compared to the vibrant Mahé. It includes the breath-taking World Heritage-listed Vallée de Mai, one of only two locations on earth to find the rare coco de mer palm tree in its natural state. This valley is also the place for bird watchers: watch out for the Seychelles black parrot, the Seychelles blue pigeon, the Seychelles bulbul and the Seychelles kestrel.
La Digue – another serene destination, boasts enchanting bays and luscious hills populated by dense jungles. One of its greatest highlights is the access it gives to the surrounding islands, such as Félicité, Grand Soeur and Île Cocos.
