Seychelles

The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 spectacular islands, where stunning powder white beaches meet blue, transparent waters. They are like no other world.

The islands of The Seychelles are scattered across the middle of the Indian Ocean. 43 of them are made up of granite and form the centre of The Seychelles cultural, economic and tourism industries. The remaining 72 islands comprise low-lying atolls, with flawless miniature marine worlds that make scuba diving sheer heaven.

The Seychelles is also home to rare animals such as the giant Aldabra tortoises, nature reserves and coral reefs. It is a living museum of natural history and is also a sanctuary for some of the rarest species of flora & fauna with almost half of its limited landmass set aside as reserves and national parks.

Seychelles is also home to two U.N.E.S.C.O World Heritage Sites, Praslin’s Vallée de Mai, once believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden and Aldabra, the world’s biggest raised coral atoll.

  • See Coco de Mer in Vallée de Mai


    Don’t miss a trip to Vallée de Mai, a Unesco World Heritage Site on Praslin. This area is often described as a primeval forest, due to the clusters of 4,000 coco de mer palms which are endemic to the Seychelles. The double-lobed coconut which is also the world’s heaviest seed is in the form of a woman’s pelvis and grows on ancient palms.

    The hidden valley boasts various walks where several important species can be discovered, you might also spot the rare black parrot or hear the call of the Seychellois bulbul.

  • Experience The Seychelles Underwater

    With 115 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean between 4° and 10° South of the equator, The Seychelles offers impressive diving opportunities.

    The Outer Islands consist of 74 exotic coral atolls and beautiful sand cays, offering divers unlimited experiences on pristine reefs. 41 mid-oceanic granite islands make up the Inner Islands which are some of the oldest on earth and are simply stunning. 

    The varied scuba diving in the Seychelles ranges from beautiful coral reefs to wall dives; wrecks to granite rock formations. The coral is abundant and healthy. Marine life is prolific and divers have the opportunity to see everything from manta rays to huge whale sharks, to colonies of rare macro life and green sea turtles.

  • Fishing


    The Seychelles has some of the finest fishing grounds in the world. The abundance of sailfish, wahoo, tuna, dorado, rainbow runner and trophies such as marlin, make for a memorable big-game fishing experience.

    The Seychelles has become the epicenter of salt-water fly-fishing and casting your fly lines on the superb shallow flats of the Outer Islands will allow you the opportunity of landing several energetic silver bonefish. Blue-water fly-fishing is also becoming increasingly popular, providing the ultimate challenge of landing large pelagic fish.

  • Stay on Private Islands


    The Seychelles archipelago has 115 islands and the private islands that we recommend are North Island, Fregate Island, Desroches Island and Denis Island. These islands are perfect if you're looking for privacy surrounded by untouched nature. 

    Most of the private islands in The Seychelles have miles of pristine white sandy beaches surrounded by turquoise waters and fantastic coral reefs. You will find luxury accommodation located on each island, with suites nestled on the beach under the shade of coconut trees with secluded beaches on each island. You can dive, snorkel, swim in the pool, relax in the spa and enjoy delicious meals prepared by top chefs.

Situated just south of the equator, the Seychelles has a typically tropical climate, meaning daily temperatures rarely drop below the mid-twenties. The region, overall, is quite humid but this is often off set by gentle sea breezes.

From May to October the Southeast Monsoon brings a relatively dry period that peaks in July and August where there is minimal precipitation. By November, the winds change, bringing light, warmer winds and the start of the main rainy season.

Post November, the Seychelles gets extremely wet, especially in December and January, though the vegetation is green, the winds generally light and the sun at its warmest. However, this is also the cyclone season and some of the southern-most islands can be affected.

The cyclone season is followed by the calmest, warmest month, April, as the winds die down and start to change direction in preparation for the Southeast Monsoon.
