Seychelles travel, informations

Since that distant time when Seychelles’ 115 granite and coral islands became
scattered over a secluded corner of the Indian Ocean, they have remained
sanctuaries for much more than some of the rarest species of flora and fauna
on earth.

As the highest peaks of the submerged remnants of the super-continent
Gondwanaland, Seychelles represents the most ancient mid-ocean islands in
the world, a true lasting legacy to the earth’s very beginnings.
Like an armada of Noah’s arks, these sparkling islands have safely cocooned
not only their unique life forms, but a sense of belonging to a bygone age. One
where tranquillity and simplicity can still be found and innocence
rediscovered, and where a diverse people share the warmth that only its young
and tiny island communities can know.

This remote archipelago has been the source of numerous myths and legends
since it was first settled in the late 18th century. Chief among these tales is
that of the Vallée de Mai, one of Seychelles’ two UNESCO World Heritage Sites
and home to the legendary coco-de-mer, which some believe could be the
original site of the biblical Garden of Eden.

Traditionally associated with the most beautiful beaches on the planet,
framed by timeless granite boulders, the Seychelles islands are at the top of
the world’s list of romantic destinations, perfect for that lazy tropical retreat
for two. But the archipelago has even more to offer in addition to the
ultimate sun, sand and sea holiday. For the modern traveller, these islands
represent escape and an opportunity to recalibrate one’s soul in harmony
with the primal essence of nature.

For those wishing to do and see it all, Seychelles offers superb sailing, diving
and snorkelling where relatively few have ventured, excellent fishing and
wonderful opportunities to discover the islands’ unique ecosystems on
mountain hikes and nature trails, all enjoyable in a climate of almost
perpetual summer. Island hopping by plane, boat or helicopter will allow you
to discover each island’s individual character, as well as a cuisine to seduce
the most demanding palate and the genuine, heart-warming welcome of the
Seychellois people.
Amidst this glimmering archipelago, spread across a million miles of azure
ocean, an unforgettable journey awaits those eager to finally discover a place
that’s truly different and magical. A place like no other and another world
entirely.

ISLAND GETAWAYS

A total of 16 islands, including 12 island getaways with only a single lodge per
island, provide an authentic tropical island experience and offer a range of
accommodation choices from the homely comforts of rustic beachside
bungalows to the pampered privacy and luxury of 5-star resorts.

24 & OVER

In Seychelles, a hotel offering more than 24 rooms is considered large
although you will find a few hotels offering 100 rooms or more. All are
favourably located on or close to a stunning beach and offer most of the usual
amenities such as a choice of bars and restaurants, water sport facilities and
programmes of evening entertainment.

 

A variety of smaller hotels, each with its own character and charm propose
simpler comforts, typical of a Creole family guesthouse, evoking an intimate,
home-away-from-home feeling.

SELF-CATERING
A selection of self-catering establishments offer visitors privacy, comfort and
independence within a homely environment. Traditionally associated with the most beautiful beaches on the planet,
framed by timeless granite boulders, the Seychelles islands are at the top of
the world’s list of romantic destinations, perfect for that lazy tropical retreat
