Seychelles Archipelago lies just south of the Equator approximately 1000 miles of the coast of East Africa. The 115 granitic and coralline islands of the Seychelles are unspoiled, timeless, unhurried and pristine. They are blessed with a tropical climate all year round with a temperature which seldom drops below 24° or rises above 33° celsius.
Mistaken as the original ‘Garden of Eden’ by General Gordon over 100 years ago, this archipelago has retained a distinctive charm and mysticism as one of the last paradises on earth. Often compared to a seaborne string of pearls, the Seychelles rarely disappoints the visitor.
Beyond the breathtaking beaches, Seychelles is also famed for its turtles, corals and amazing birdlife. Many of the islands remain sanctuaries for rare and exotic flora and fauna – and it is this geographical diversity which makes island hopping extremely popular.
Whether you come to dive among the more than 800 species of fish in the island waters, marvel at flocks of colourful birds flitting among rare jungle trees, soak up the equatorial sun on powder white sands or to celebrate your marriage vows, the Seychelles archipelago will impress as being just about as close to paradise as it is possible to get on earth.
