Seychelles is a 115-island country nested in the heart of the Indian Ocean and it’s a perfect destination for those looking for a magical vacation. With their sumptuous landscapes, the Seychelles are a real heaven on earth. To preserve this wonderful nature, the Seychelles protect themselves from mass tourism. They offer a unique environment with hundreds of endemic animals and plants, and the most beautiful white sandy beaches in the world. You will be amazed!
The three main islands are Mahé, Praslin and La Digue, with the largest amount of tourist activities. Mahé, the biggest island (17 miles by 5) is home to Victoria, one of the smallest capital cities on earth and the international airport. There you can take the time to discover the local culture, enjoy the 65 beaches around the island and indulge in style in one of the numerous hotels. It’s also the most populated island of the Seychelles with 90% of the population of the country.
Praslin (7 miles by 3) is 15 minutes away by plane and 45 minutes away by boat and is known worldwide for the « Vallée de Mai », a Unesco World Heritage site. Praslin is home to the sea coconut tree, a unique tree with the most provocative fruit, the coco-de-mer, the biggest nut in the world.
La Digue (3 miles by 2) is 30 minutes away by boat from Praslin. The island is famous for its amazingly beautiful beaches including « Anse Source d’Argent », which is the most photographed beach on earth. The island preserved its very particular lifestyle, with only a few cars around.
Except for the traditional Mahé-Praslin-La Digue tour, there are so many other islands worth a trip, even if further away. You might want to take a day or two to visit the bird reserve of Cousin Island, the giant tortoise reserve on Curieuse Island or Bird Island, a sanctuary for birds. Seychelles is a haven for gay travelers looking for a beach vacation mixing luxury, leisure and sunny tropics.
In addition to these breathtaking landscapes, the Seychelles pride themselves on having a fascinating local gastronomy and on offering the coolest activities.
