A thousand miles from anywhere, the Seychelles consist of over a hundred islands scattered across the tropical Indian Ocean, just south of the Equator.
The terrain is varied: beaches lined with granite boulders look other-worldly, while the warm, calm, turquoise waters are a diver’s and snorkeler’s paradise.
However, the Seychelles isn’t just about perfect beaches. It’s also an up and coming conservation hot-spot with half of its land set aside as nature reserves. Its lush landscapes feature rainforests and waterfalls and there are tiny frogs, enormous tortoises and many endemic species of tropical birds. Spring and autumn are ideal times to visit, in the transition months between the humid northwest and cooler southeast trade winds.
Some Seychelles islands offer romantic getaways, others remote hideaways. All are perfect for honeymooners or anyone seeking a true sense of seclusion.
