Located in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa, Seychelles is a group of 115 islands that are basically the definition of paradise. And while Seychelles is most often associated with honeymoons (Prince William and Kate Middleton vacationed here after their 2011 marriage), the truth is that there’s SO much more to Seychelles than just romantic beach resorts. What makes Seychelles special are the sensory experiences that are unleashed on guests the moment they step foot on the islands – white powdery sand tickles your toes persuading you to stay a little while longer, the creaminess of a coconut curry seduces the palette, Seychellois sunsets work hard to give you goose bumps, and the sweltering heat seems to be there just to provide you with an excuse to take a dip in temperate waters that make your heart sing. So many sensations in one short evening – that’s how Seychelles makes its guests fall in love with itself.

Major Attractions

Mahe Island : Mahe is the largest island of Seychelles and the first stop for most visitors.
With exotic trees lining the beaches for miles, this place is a beach lover’s heaven. And there’s no shortage of natural beauty in any direction. The island is full of picture-perfect coconut plantations and empty beaches with granite peaks framing it all.

Parslin Island : It’s known for palm-fringed beaches, like Anse Georgette and Anse Lazio, both bordered by large granite boulders. The main beach, Anse Volbert-Côte D’Or, faces the offshore islet Chauve Souris. Praslin’s rugged, jungle-covered interior is home to Praslin National Park, which encompasses Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve.

Curieuse Island : Curieuse Island is a small granitic island close to the north coast of the island of Praslin. Curieuse is notable for its bare red earth intermingled with the unique Coco de Mer palms, one of the cultural icons of Seychelles, only being present on the two islands. It is also home to around 300 Aldabra giant tortoise.

La Digue Island : This is smallest of the three most popular islands in Seychelles. Even though you’ll experience “island time” everywhere in Seychelles, things are even more relaxed on La Digue. There are virtually no cars on the island, and the main mode of transport is by bike. Grand Anse is probably the most popular (and arguably the most beautiful), but you can also visit Petite Anse, Anse Patates, Anse La Réunion, Anse Marron, and more! (La Digue is pretty much just one big beach!)
