Seychelles consists of 115 islands that span an area of approximately 445 km from the Indian Ocean. Inside they are grouped around the 3 main islands, known as Mahé, Praslin and La Digue.
Mahé is mountainous, granite and the best known, offers more than 65 beaches – with a wonderful landscape, surrounded by mountains and green forest.
Praslin is the second largest island in the Seychelles and is home to the Valleé de Mai, a UNESCO heritage site and has beaches classified in the ranking among the 10 best in the world.
La Digue is mandatory at least a two days stay on the island, its beaches are spectacular, especially Grand Anse and Anse Source d’Argent, through which pink granite rocks are scattered.
The islands conserve a fauna and flora unique in the world, beaches of fine sand with exceptionally transparent waters, granite and coral islands, a paradise for marine life, you can contemplate species such as drylimnas cuvieri aldabranus, extraordinary plants such as jellyfish and the most admirable plant: the “coco de mer”, found in Praslin and nowhere else in the world. Islands like Aldabra, one of the only pristine islands in the world, are the last stronghold of the rare “hawksbill turtle” (giant tortoises). That is why the laws of natural preservation in Seychelles are strict.
To get from one island to another, there are several means of transport, the most common being boats. The transfer between the islands in light aircraft is a must, it is already worth a trip, a beautiful view of coral reefs and the immensity of the sea becomes the main attraction.
The exclusivity of modern and luxurious resorts are some of the attractions of this archipelago, built on private islands with restricted access. However, the island also offers charming and comfortable small hotels.
Union of beauty, romanticism and privacy, makes Seychelles a unique destination.
The tropical climate here is pleasant all year round, heat almost during all year, with temperatures between 24ºC to 30ºC. This is a destination you can visit any time of the year, it is perfect for those who love diving. A little care with rain, that is concentrated between January and May.
