Seychelles Tourism

Imagine all the picture postcard-perfect images of palm-fringed white sand beaches and azure-blue seas and all the Discovery Channel shots of tropical lushness and put them together, and you will have described just about any spot in the Seychelles. With a fabulous variety of marine, plant and insect species, this little archipelago of islands called Seychelles is prettily scattered over the Indian Ocean and justifiably earns the tourist-brochure epithet of ‘paradise on earth’.

Tourist infrastructure is very well developed by African standards, the opportunities for outdoor activities, both on land and in the sea are innumerable and the people are friendly and welcoming; so what are you waiting for? Sashay on down to the Seychelles!

The capital of Seychelles is Victoria and is so small that one can cover the whole place on foot in less than a day!

Seychelles was once known as pirates’ hideout. In fact the Anse Forbans on Mahe Island means Pirate’s Cove.

The female Coco De Mer nut found in Seychelles is said to be the world’s heaviest nut.

Did you know? Aldabra atoll in Seychelles is the world’s largest coral atoll and is home to over 100,000 giant land tortoises, millions of birds, fish and sea turtles.
