An isolated archipelago of abundant natural beauty, the Seychelles are like the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean with their exceptional birding and dazzling diversity of marine life.
Located 1,000 miles from anywhere else, the best way to experience the Seychelles is on an island-hopping itinerary, allowing you to skip (by boat, seaplane or helicopter) between pristine sandy coves, granite islands and coral atolls.
You’ll soon discover that, from above, the sun-drenched Seychelles are peaceful and utterly romantic, with sandy beaches and blue skies roamed by the majestic frigatebird. Below is completely different world of exotic, vibrantly coloured fish and coral. Experienced divers and novice snorkelers alike will soon find themselves in an enchanting world of colourful marine life.
Mahe, the largest island, is the first port of call on any Seychelles holiday. Once the hub of the spice trade, it’s better known today for its attractive beach resorts, laidback locals and voluptuous, mountain interior. From here you can sail off to Desroches, a stunning strip of palm-fringed coral roamed by hundred-year-old giant tortoises, or venture to the birdwatcher’s paradise of Praslin Island. On some islands, like Denis, traditional life prevails with bicycles and horses still used to get around.
The hotels scattered throughout the Seychelles offer a style of accommodation to suit every need. From beachfront suites with infinity pools that melt into the sea, to stylish guestrooms with four-poster beds and traditional island-style décor, we can recommend your perfect retreat.
