The terrain is varied: beaches lined with granite boulders look other-worldly, while the warm, calm, turquoise waters are a diver’s and snorkeller’s paradise.
However, the Seychelles isn’t just about perfect beaches. It’s also an up and coming conservation hot-spot with half of its land set aside as nature reserves. Its lush landscapes feature rainforests and waterfalls and there are tiny frogs, ginormous tortoises and many endemic species of tropical birds.
Some Seychelles islands offer romantic getaways, others remote hideaways. All are perfect for honeymooners or anyone seeking a true sense of seclusion. This is where you’ll find some of the best private islands in the world – push the boat out and stay at North Island if you really want to experience the A-list life or head to Denis Island to fall off grid castaway style.
