Superb Seychelles Holiday Options
The Republic of the Seychelles is made up of 115 islands stretched over 365 000 square miles in the Indian Ocean. Only nineteen of the islands are inhabited, and of those eight have populations of less than 20 people.
Until its independence, in 1979, the Seychelles was a British Colony so English is an official language, along with French. Almost all Seychellois speak English, French and Creole. The country belongs to the African Union as well as the Commonwealth, and it is relatively prosperous. Culturally it is a mixture of British, French and African, with a lot of Indian and Chinese influences as well.
Spread across a huge patch of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles enjoys fantastic beach weather almost all year round.
Whether you want a guesthouse close to the bustling capital city of Victoria or a patch on a private island, you will be able to get your toes into the warm soft sand.
A particularly attractive option is a villa in a fully serviced resort. these are available on Mahe or Praslin at surprisingly good prices.
If snorkelling or diving or sailing is your thing, there will be plenty of opportunity for that too.
And the local island cuisine will keep you deliciously well fed and contented.
The main island, Mahe is less than 11 hours away on a direct flight from Heathrow and also easily reachable from regional airports.
The main island is Mahe, with a population of about 85 000 people. The capital is the quaint bustling town of Victoria, and there are plenty of shops, markets, restaurants, bars and art galleries, and a vibrant music scene.
There are also accommodation options ranging from self-catering and small guest houses to superb ultra luxurious five star hotels. There are beautiful beaches on both sides of the island and plenty of access to boating, fishing snorkelling and diving opportunities.
The second biggest island is Praslin. With a population under 10 000, this island is almost entirely devoted to tourism, with fantastic hotels and resorts enjoying access to stunningly beautiful beaches.
There is still a range of different places to stay, with some self catering, but there is not the same range of commercial activities as is to be found on Mahe.
There are several other islands that are home to exclusive luxury hotels which enjoy the privacy and isolation of being entirely separate from the day to day hustle and bustle of the main islands.
A large part of the Seychelles, including much of both Mahe and Praslin is in National Parks, designed to protect the more than 1000 flowering plant species and 200 species of bird that are found there.
There are also many reptiles and amphibians, including the smallest frog in the world and the largest land tortoise. The most notable mammal is the the 'flying fox' a large fruit bat.
The islands are extraordinarily beautifu, with verdant forests inland and densely fringed beaches.
If you like the idea of combining your beach holiday with a bit of exploration of local markets, restaurants and culture, perhaps Mahe is best for you. If you want the complete kick back and feel the sand between your toes experience, then perhaps one of the smaller islands. Or maybe a few days on Mahe and some time on one of the other islands. Whether it's an all inclusive package you're looking for or a multi-centre holiday; whether its your honeymoon or a multigenerational family holiday just let us know.
Anything is possible and it is our job to make it happen in the way you want it to, with the maximum of enjoyment and minimum of worry for you.
