Seychelles Holiday Guide

With its blinding chalk-white beaches, neon blue waters and blazing sunsets, this tropical archipelago is a real earthly paradise.

There are few places on this planet as gorgeous as the Seychelles, an archipelago of beach-fringed islands scattered in the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa. The idyllic and oft-deserted beaches are the islands’ biggest draws, but visitors to the Seychelles will find plenty more to do than simply lounging on the sand. Dive down to shipwrecks, watch giant tortoises and treat yourself to massages at a soothing spa.

The Seychelles comprises some 115 different islands, so there are loads of options when deciding where to stay. Most travellers find a base on one of the three major inner islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue, which host the vast majority of the Seychelles accommodations.

Most of your time in the Seychelles will probably be spent on one or more of the island’s pristine stretches of sand. Lay your towel down on stunning Anse Source d'Argent on La Digue or Anse Lazio in Praslin. For an even quieter beach escape, head for the small but wonderfully secluded Anse Marron on the south of La Digue – it can only be accessed on foot, so you may well have it to yourself.

Find out why the Seychelles is touted as ‘the Galàpagos of the Indian Ocean' with a spot of wildlife-watching. Bring your binoculars for birding excursions on Cousin Island or Bird Island, both of which serve as bird sanctuaries, and look for Seychelles blue pigeons and sooty terns. Land-dwelling animals, including free-roaming Aldabra giant tortoises, can also be seen on some of the islands.

Don’t miss your opportunity to explore the Seychelles’ underwater world. Go snorkelling or scuba-diving for encounters with luminous coral, shoals of brightly coloured fish and hawksbill sea turtles. You might even spot a mighty (but harmless!) whale shark.

After a day of beach time, animal encounters and underwater adventures, return to one of the Seychelle’s superb luxury resorts to dine on Creole cuisine and fresh fish from the Indian Ocean. The perfect end to a day in paradise.
