Seychelles

Often described as the Garden of Eden, The Seychelles with its dramatic mountains rising from coral sands, shimmering blue waters, stunning flora and fauna, and coral reefs teeming with colourful fish is a true piece of paradise.

The Seychelles is worthy of its reputation as a dream holiday destination with blissful private island getaways, fantastic diving and excellent hotels with impeccable service. A great choice for honeymooners wanting the perfect romantic island getaway or those seeking the ultimate in luxury beach escapes, the Seychelles is the place to go. However there is much more to the Seychelles than just the beach with national parks and rare flora and fauna.

Did you know?

  • One hundred and fifteen islands make up the Seychelles archipelago.
  • Great romantic location perfect for honeymoons or that special occasion.
  • The Seychelles enjoys a fairly constant temperature all year round. It lies just outside the cyclone belt so storms are rare.
  • Rain can occur at any time of the year but January is usually the wettest month but with sudden down pours rather than constant rain.
  • October and April the sea is calmest so best for fly and flats fishing but diving and fishing is good March-May and September-November.
  • June to August the seas can be rougher due to the south easterly trade winds.
  • If you’re feeling a bit more energetic then there is a variety of clearly marked coastal hiking trails, many of which go through the scenic Morne Seychellois National Park on Mahe Island.
  • The Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve on Praslin island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and protects endangered species such as the Seychelles blue pigeon, Seychelles sunbird, black parrot, bronze gecko and the rare tiger chameleon.
  • On Praslin you find the largest seed in the plant kingdom, the Coco de Mer, weighing in at around 15 kg.
