The Seychelles were, according to legend, born from the tears of emotion bursting from the Creator as he gazed at his masterpiece. It certainly has some of the best beaches and most luxurious resorts in the world. Nevertheless, it is much more than just a pretty face. Forty one of its islands are the oldest mid-oceanic granite islands on earth while the remaining 74 are coral, making them appealing to nature lovers and divers alike. They are also one of the few places on earth where giant tortoise roam freely.
Holidays in the Seychelles offer so many places to visit, Bird Island for bird lovers, La Digue to see the world's most iconic beach, tours to see some of the rarest species of flora and fauna on earth and with gems such as the legendary Vallée de Mai, home to the legendary Coco-de-Mer, there is never a dull moment. Travellers can enjoy glass-bottomed boating or, if they are feeling more active, participate in world-class water sports, golf or horse riding.
If all of that sounds too taxing, the Seychelles now also offers world-class spa facilities at many of its boutique resorts. Alternatively, dine out on unforgettable Creole and international cuisine that reflects the melting pot of culture one will find throughout the Seychelles.
Seychelles holidays fulfil every need.
