Dreaming of white beaches, aquamarine water, soothing breezes, natural wonders and a varied choice of adventures in a place where the locals are finely attuned to making visitors feel welcome and well looked after? Then put Seychelles at the top of your travel destinations.
Visit the world’s oldest islands
Even before your flight’s wheels hit the ground, the aerial view of the world’s oldest islands will steal your heart and breath. Seychelles is the world’s only granite islands in mid-ocean and has the largest raised coral atoll on the planet. Its archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean contains 42 of the very few granitic islands in the world, of which the main island, Mahé, is the largest.
On the islands even when you’re doing nothing, you’re still doing something. Depending on how active you feel and how much time you have, you can plan a varied schedule that includes activities on land and at sea. Travelling between the islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Dique is easy and quick.
Every direction you go in brings you to a pristine beach. Beau Vallon beach in Mahè delivers on beauty and entertainment, Praslin with its scalloped coast of cozy white-sanded inlets is a diving haven, and the ultimate beach paradise of La Dique with the beaches of Anse Source d’Argent and Grand’Anse is a magical experience.
One sometimes forgets that the splendor of the Indian Ocean is matched by the steep mountain ranges and dense jungles of the Seychelles. These mountains and jungles offer homes to a myriad of fauna and flora species, endless views and unique nature experiences. Don your walking shoes and spend a day or more exploring the cool depths of the jungle with its waterfalls and pools that fringe the majestic granite mountains. Morne Seychelles National Park on Mahé is an adventure on its own with its scenic trails, variety of eco systems and the archipelago’s highest peak, Morne Seychellois. Put Vallee de Mai on Praslin, a true Garden of Eden which boast the Famous Coco De Mer, on your must-see list.
If you don’t have time to visit the giant tortoise in its original habitat on the UNESCO World Heritage site of the Aldabra coral atoll, hop over to Moyenne Island. Moyenne Island is surely less known than Aldabra but it´s a passion project of one man who wanted to preserve the natural heritage of Seychelles and it is the world’s smallest national park. Here you will find many giant tortoises lumbering along the lush island habitat.
If you love the ocean and want to get up close and personal to the colorful life beaming all along the coral reefs, book a day with one of the local boating companies and take a ride right up to the reefs. Most of them supply the basic gear for a sublime snorkeling experience. Deep-sea fishing is usually also an option with these service suppliers.
