With over 100 beautiful tropical islands in the archipelago, it's hardly surprising that the Seychelles is so popular for a 'get-away-from-it-all' holiday.
With a fantastic year round climate, magnificent beaches, picture-perfect lagoons and luxury resorts, the Seychelles has long been a favourite amongst honeymooners and romantics. We think there are few better holiday destinations on earth if you’re looking for real peace and tranquillity.
Out and About
One of the joys of visiting the Seychelles is discovering the diverse geography, character and history of each island. Island-hopping is a great way to do this and we recommend taking in Cousin Island, a beautiful nature reserve and home to some of the Seychelles’ rarest birds, and Praslin’s Vallée De Mai, known as the original Garden of Eden.
Easily accessible from Mahé, Sainte Anne or Praslin, La Digue is a quintessential island paradise best explored by bicycle, the mode of transport favoured by many locals. Enjoy a tour of the fascinating old vanilla and cinnamon plantation at L'Union Estate, meet its giant tortoise residents, and then head to Anse Source d'Argent, considered one of the best beaches in the world.
Snorkelling and Diving
The Seychelles is famous for its crystal clear waters and the depths surrounding Coco Island are often referred to as a ‘living aquarium’ due to the plethora of tropical fish found here. Another premier dive site, and our favourite, is Shark Bank off Mahé, where heading into the serene waters will reveal whitetip reef sharks and eagle rays.
Food and Drink
Creole cuisine is an exciting blend of French, Indian and Oriental flavours and nuances, and we love Chez Plume on Mahé for its inspired menu of fresh seafood and local flavours, which are both authentic and contemporary. The islands also offer a fantastic variety of world cuisines and we particularly like La Scala and Le Corsaire on Mahé for their divine international and Italian dishes, and Le Mont Fleuri at Sainte Anne Resort & Spa with its stunning setting and fantastic views over the treetops and beyond.
