The Seychelles comprises 115 islands that form an archipelago just south of the equator that stretches about 1 600kms into the Indian Ocean. These island paradises boast some of the world’s most beautiful beaches, rare and exotic plant and animal life, and friendly people. A luxurious and relaxing retreat from the world, the Seychelles is a year-round destination with its balmy weather, pristine ocean waters and upmarket facilities. Highlights of a trip here include a visit to the exclusive Desroches, North and Fregate islands, as well as tours of the main land, guided walking trails, glass-bottom boat tours and reef safaris.
