The Seychelles, beautiful and pristine, are featured in a plethora of tropical island fancies. The archipelago's 115 coral and granite islands, which are the peaks of a large underwater plateau, provide beautiful boulder-strewn beaches, virgin jungles, thriving coral reefs, and UNESCO-listed nature reserves, to name a few.
The Seychelles are located near the equator, east of Kenya. Almost half of the country's land is protected, and several of the islands and atolls are part of marine sanctuaries. Hiking the mountain trails, basking on the beautiful beaches, rock climbing, photographing the unique flora and fauna, and dining on delectable Créole cuisine are all popular activities in the Seychelles.
The clean, azure water is ideal for water sports. The Seychelles provide world-class diving, snorkeling, surfing, and sailing, as well as some of the world's richest fishing grounds.' The Seychelles' bigger granitic inner islands (mainly Mahé, Praslin, and La Digue) are the most developed for tourism, with numerous luxury five-star resorts.
The little capital of Mahé, Victoria, as well as the international airport, cruise ship port, and the picturesque Morne Seychellois National Park, are all located on the island. On Praslin Island, the UNESCO-listed Vallée de Mai may be visited, while La Digue is home to some of the Seychelles' most beautiful beaches. Uninhabited low-lying sand cays and small coralline islands and atolls make up the outlying islands. Anglers will locate unique fishing lodges on Alphonse Island and Farquhar Atoll, where the fishing is excellent.
