The Seychelles are made up of 115 islands scattered in the Indian Ocean. The beaches are ribbons of white sand lapped by topaz waters and backed by lush hills.
The three main islands are Praslin, La Digue and Mahé. The mountainous interior of Mahé is home to Morne Seychellois National Park.
The Seychelles is, unsurprisingly, a choice place for a honeymoon. But there’s much more to do than opening a bottle of champagne with your loved one in a luxurious hotel, the Seychelles is also a top spot to watch birds and giant tortoises in their natural habitat. And a vast living world lies just below the turquoise waters, beckoning divers of all levels. If you tire of beaches you can venture inland on jungle trails or indulge in fine dining.
This paradise is accessible to us all because on top of ultra-luxurious options, the Seychelles has plenty of quaint, affordable self-catering facilities and guesthouses, often situated on some of the best land. Though it remains an expensive destination, its tourist authorities are now targeting non-millionaires and promoting these economy options.
