The Seychelles is a chain of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean off East Africa, coveted for its beaches, coral reefs and diving opportunities, and praised for its nature reserves and rare wildlife. When you thought of a paradise island as a child, this is exactly where your imagination took you. Some of the world’s finest beaches lie amongst this myriad of islands, with Mahé the largest and most diverse of them all.
Beyond the glorious white sand beaches and sparkling blue waters, you’ll discover rich and unique flora and fauna. The lush vegetation includes coconuts, mangoes and bananas and the islands are a natural habitat for a range of wildlife such as the elusive Green turtle and the rare and remarkable Black Parrot.
The Seychelles archipelago feature two natural UNESCO World Heritage sites, including the beautiful Vallée de Mai on Praslin where the unique double-nutted coco-de-mer palm grows. The islands are also home of Wright’s Gardenia, a shrub with wonderfully scented flowers found nowhere else in the world. A cruise of the Seychelles gives you the opportunity to island hop and discover the individual charms of each. Maybe you’ll fall in love with Praslin’s hidden coves and tropical fish or La Digue’s azure waters and coral reefs
