Seychelles

Dotting the Indian Ocean off the coast of East Africa, the Seychelles is renowned for its tailor-made romantic getaways, adventure opportunities and breathtaking natural beauty. This exceptionally picturesque archipelago is comprised of 115 coral and granite islands. Visitors can look forward to relaxing on sun-drenched beaches lapped by crystal-clear turquoise waters, visiting the lively capital city of Victoria, and exploring the colourful coral underwater wonderlands encircling the islands. Other major highlights include: abundant wildlife such as giant Aldabra tortoises and nesting sea turtles, indigenous plant life and a host of tropical birds. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit the two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve and Aldabra Atoll.
