The Seychelles islands are the glorious paradise on everyone’s bucket list. They are the epitome of the idyllic holiday: turquoise seas, white sandy beaches and luxury resorts surrounded by graceful palm trees gently swaying to the cool breeze of the Indian Ocean. It is a tropical oasis with great weather all-year-round and has been a major tourist destination since the 1970s.
The Seychelles archipelago is made up of 115 islands. It is hardly surprising then, that visitors ache to discover their beauty and witness for themselves some of the most photographed scenery on Earth.
Numerous tour operators offer day boat trips and excursions and the fleet and prices vary. Snorkelling is a must as this particular spot of the Indian Ocean offers a spectacular view of some of the most rare species of aquatic life, including the nearly extinct Hawksbill Turtle, which comes to nest only in this area. From Praslin island, you can follow the footsteps of Robinson Cruise aboard a modern catamaran, following a carefully designed multi-stop route.
Kayaking allows visitors to explore the majestic landscape and underwater life in a more eco-friendly way, whilst also keeping fit. Island tours can be combined with fishing experiences. Seychelles is a rare fishing destination so expect unusual catches of the day!
One of the most popular activities particularly favored by honeymooners is of course a sunset cruise. Glide down the Indian Ocean as the sun starts to set and make a toast while you take in the unforgettable scenery: a perfect end to a perfect day.
