"La Digue is the Seychelles' most visually recognisable island, complete with huge granite boulders and acres of lush jungle. The beauty of La Digue is not only its beauty but also its proximity to the equally awe-inspiring Praslin."

Travel Information

Located off the East coast of Africa, the Seychelles is home to some of the world’s most luxurious and secluded resorts. This unique archipelago is made up of 115 islands, meaning wherever you stay you’ll feel like you have escaped to a tropical paradise of shimmering seas and sprawling jungles.

Prepare for gorgeous African sunshine, clear turquoise seas, and beautiful untouched beaches because in the Seychelles you’ll have all three. The pristine ecological conditions and lack of predators across the archipelago mean that animals feel so un-threatened that it is common to see turtles coming ashore during the day to lay their eggs. This rare reptilian encounter paired with some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery makes the Seychelles a fantastic destination for nature lovers and wildlife enthusiasts.

Whenever we send clients to the Seychelles we always recommend taking a trip to Moyenne Island, which over the last half a century has been transformed into a thriving tortoise preserve. The island was bought by English newspaper editor Brendon Grimshaw who rescued it in 1962 and transformed it into a mini paradise. He has refused many hotels development offers as he feared his shelled friends might lose their home.

It has now been named the smallest national park in the world. Of course, there are beautiful white sandy beaches to enjoy, and there are many fantastic reefs in the surrounding ocean for diving enthusiasts.

Whilst the Seychelles is one of the only islands in the Indian Ocean where homosexuality is not outlawed, LGBTQ+ residents face legal and social challenges not faced by wider society. However, employment discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is prohibited by law.

Things to do in the Seychelles

The main reason people visit the Seychelles is to enjoy the beautiful resorts and everything that comes with them. The gourmet cuisine, beautiful surroundings, stunning beaches and top of the range service from the highly trained staff.

Fregate Island

Discover the rarefied flora and fauna of the Seychelles. Take a trip to Fregate Island and meet the ultra rare Aldabra Giant Tortoises. It’s the world’s largest coral atoll. This is a designated World Heritage Site.

Sainte Anne Marine National Park

Spend a day outside of your resort and head to the Sainte Anne Marine National Park. It makes a lovely day trip as you need to catch a boat to the island. Take in the beautiful nature which is found on the island. You can take a glass-bottomed boat ride to get a closer look at the coral reef below the surface.

Vallée de Mai

Forming the deep-green heart of Praslin island, the Unesco-listed prehistoric palm forest of Vallée de Mai is the only place in the Seychelles where all six species of palm grow together. The most famous of these endemic species is the coco de mer palm – reminiscent of the original Jurassic Park set. This is the ideal place for a family day-trip as younger ones will marvel at the otherworldly size of the drooping green leaves.

There are several airlines that offer flights to the Seychelles, including Air Seychelles, Emirates, Ethiopian Airlines, and Qatar Airways, among others. These flights will likely fly into the Seychelles International Airport.

When planning your trip to the Seychelles, it is important to check what type of visa you will need in order to enter the country. Depending on your nationality, you may require a visa or other paperwork such as a Barf Legitime permit if you plan to visit islands other than Mahe – Anse aux Pines, Praslin and/or La Digue.

A cruise is a fantastic way to journey to the Seychelles and explore its beautiful island paradises. Most cruises to the Seychelles originate from East Africa – from ports like Mangalore or Durban. Get ready for balmy days of sightseeing, beach hopping and onboard entertainment as you travel from island to island.

If you’re in the Seychelles and looking to explore the islands, there are various ways to get around. Private car or taxi hire give you the freedom to discover at your own pace. Buses, minivans, and water taxis offer a cost-effective way of getting around in and near Victoria as well as some of the more remote islands.
