For many, the idea of paradise takes a very particular image – islands of hidden, jungle-surrounded coves with long beaches lapped by transparent blue water.
The Seychelles is that idea perfected. Sitting off the east coast of Africa in the warm waters of the Indian Ocean, this tropical archipelago of over one hundred islands forms the backdrop for unforgettable travel experiences. Thought of as a little slice of the Galapagos, these granite and coral islands are know for their natural beauty and thriving populations of rare flora and fauna. Along with time spent escaping the world on empty beaches, the Seychelles offers islands both developed and uninhabited to explore – perfectly preserved centuries-old rainforests that house giant tortoises, World Heritage-listed nature reserves, and Creole culture to feast on.
