Exploring the Stunning National Parks in Seychelles
When one thinks of Seychelles, images of pristine beaches, azure waters, and lush green landscapes come to mind. Beyond these mesmerizing visuals, the National Parks in Seychelles beckon with their unique biodiversity and natural wonders. Among the vast list of national parks of Seychelles, there are three terrestrial and six marine parks, all managed by the Seychelles National Environment Commission under the Department of the Environment. Today, we’ll dive into some of these prominent parks.
The Green and Hawksbill Turtles are a sight to behold. Green turtles, with their smooth carapace, are primarily herbivores, while the hawksbill turtles stand out with their pointed beak and beautifully patterned shell, predominantly feasting on sponges. Both species are regular nesters on Seychelles beaches. Bird Island, Aldabra Atoll, and Cousin Island are their favored nesting sites. For those eager to see them underwater, Silhouette Island and North Island are ideal diving locations.
