Long renowned as the perfect honeymoon destination, the beautiful Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles are also a great deal more. With two World Heritage Sites, four far-flung archipelagos, numerous nature reserves and bountiful coral reefs, the diverse islands hold much of interest to lovers of nature, both above and below the sea’s surface.
Colourful coral reefs teeming with fish, nudibranchs, sea turtles, whale sharks and manta rays; rare land and sea birds, endemic flora, skinks, geckos, giant tortoises and the world’s largest nut, the coco de mer: all find refuge in these special islands. Fascinating wildlife walks, superb scuba and snorkelling, safe swimming, fine sailing and simple beachcombing – just some of the ingredients available with which to create a deliciously natural holiday in the Seychelles.
Being outside the cyclonic belt and with benign wildlife, colourful coral reefs, no malaria and safe bathing beaches, the islands of the Seychelles are a haven for families and those desiring a relaxing yet stimulating wildlife and natural history holiday.
