Destination Information for Seychelles

The archipelago group of 115 islands that makes up Seychelles is a popular holiday destination associated with luxury. High quality resorts, white sandy beaches and stunningly clear waters make this a mecca for honeymooners and those who enjoy the finer things in life!

The majority of the islands are made from coral and are unoccupied, particularly the outer Seychelles. The inner islands, especially Mahé, Praslin and La Digue are where most tourists head to. The largest of the islands, Mahé, is also the busiest, but it’s still possible to find secluded bays and coves for a private sunbathing session.

When visiting Seychelles, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to stay active as well as topping up your tan. Watersports are a delight in the warm water of the Indian Ocean, and you can spot tropical fish and turtles while trying your hand at diving, snorkelling and fishing.

On land, hire a bike or head out on foot to explore the islands on the well-maintained hiking routes and take in the wonderful wildlife. Birdwatching is a popular pastime, especially on the tiny Cousin Island, which is home to over 300,000 birds.

Victoria, the capital of Mahé, is the place to go if you’re looking for nightlife and shopping spots. A top tip is to book your accommodation in advance, or you may find yourself being told to do so immediately upon arrival before you can pass through immigration! Seychelles is a true tropical paradise and somewhere you’ll definitely want to take a return trip.

Malaria and regions within country:

Malaria is not normally present in the Seychelles.
