seychelles

The Seychelles is perhaps the ultimate in paradise. Consisting of 115 islands, The Republic of Seychelles is an archipelago of legendary beauty that is hard to beat. With a climate that provides endless summer and low volume tourism this is the place to come for complete and utter relaxation. Each of the islands has its own unique character and charm and to this day many remain totally uninhabited.

On Aldabra, the world's largest atoll, which is also listed as a World Heritage Site, one will discover giant land tortoises that outnumber even those of the Galapagos. The atoll consists of 13 islands which are uninhabited and largely untouched.

La Digue is the fourth largest island in The Seychelles. It is renowned for its pristine beaches, vanilla plantations and copra factories and has a wonderful old world charm where the chief mode of transport is ox cart and bicycle.

Nid d'Aigles is the highest point on the island of La Digue and affords superb views of the beaches and the small island of Ile Coco. Wildlife abounds with the indigenous black paradise flycatcher, the rare yellow fin and the star-bellied terrapin making their home here.

The Island of Mahe is blessed with around 70 pristine white beaches. Mahe offers that little bit more than just sun, sea and sand and its bustling market and botanical gardens (containing wild orchids and tortoises) give an insight into the island's culture as do the colonial-style mansions that are both graceful and imposing.

For fishing enthusiasts there are deep sea opportunities in Denis where marlin is the catch of the day. Desroches is also an excellent island for water sports and general outdoor adventure with the diving in particular being very good.
