Uncrowded beaches with blindingly white sand, water in just about every shade of blue imaginable and natural surroundings of palm trees and lush vegetation; it would appear Mother Nature didn’t hold back as the Seychelles are pretty much perfect.
In this archipelago of 115 islands, most of which are uninhabited, it's Mahe, which is usually the first stop for visitors. With a mountainous, forested interior and over 60 dreamy beaches and coves fringing the island, ranging from sweeping bays to hidden corners, it's almost too gorgeous for words.
The second largest island, Praslin, is a laid back delight of exquisite sands and tropical forests carpeting the hills. Don't miss lovely Anse Lazio, which regularly appears in top ten lists for the world's most beautiful beaches, or the fabulous UNESCO listed Vallee de Mai, which has been compared to the Garden of Eden.
If visiting Mahe or Praslin, hiring a car is by far the easiest way to get around and explore the many wonderful beaches and attractions on each island.
La Digue has a more unhurried pace of life with only a few surfaced roads and virtually no cars just the occasional ox cart or bicycle, it's definitely more back-to-nature than jet-set.
Cerf Island sits within Sainte Anne Marine Park and is an unspoiled hideaway, perfect for divers, snorkelers and lovers of nature. The tranquil setting and stunning natural beauty combine to create a true vision of tropical paradise. Silhouette Island, which is the third largest of the archipelago, is an untouched gem of valleys and gullies, rugged cliffs, jungles of primeval forest, meandering rivers and bewitching beaches encircled by a protected coral reef.
