The attraction of holidaying in the Seychelles Islands lies in their unspoilt beauty, with diving, fishing and water sports topping the list of popular activities. The Seychelles beaches are known to be some of the Best in the World.
Set against the soothing blue of the Indian Ocean and with only granite boulders or the occasional cluster of palm trees breaking the long runs of powder-soft beaches, the islands of the Seychelles Archipelago are hard to beat as a beach holiday destination. And it’s not just the postcard-perfect beaches that sit among the world’s finest; with a scattering of award-winning resorts and super-stylish villas, a Seychelles holiday affords you the chance to live out your tropical island fantasy in pure, world-class luxury.
Further inland, warm mountains blanketed with thick jungle gradually give way to spectacular oceanside, granite rock outcrops and white beaches – with beautiful coral reefs visible through the crystal-clear water that surrounds the islands. The Seychelles Islands are a pristine, heavenly and a fabled paradise.
Seychelles is an archipelago (an extensive group of islands), located in the Indian Ocean. Despite this distance from the Africa's continent, the nation is, politically, part of Africa. The Seychelles consists of 115 islands, of which 42 are designated as granite or granitic islands, and 73 as coral islands. These islands are then sub-divided into the so-called Inner Islands and the Outer Islands. The main islands are Mahe, Praslin, La Digue, Silhoutte & Assumption.
