A thousand miles from the African coast , like a scattering of jewels in the Indian Ocean are the Seychelles. These islands are the perfect hideaway for a romantic island vacation.
There are seven islands; some tiny atolls, others with volcanic hills covered in luxuriant vegetation. Some are fringed by the finest powder white sand, others have spectacular coral gardens where translucent fish dart among colorful reefs.
The largest islands; Mahe and Praslin have a wide range of accommodation, from the six star Maia and the Banyan Tree, to a number of simply delightful owner run properties.
At the heart of Praslin is the World Heritage site of Vallee de Mai where luxuriant forests thrive, and you can also enjoy a day’s island hopping calling in at unique places like La Digue and Curieuse where you find beautiful birdlife and giant tortoise.
An efficient air network can take you to more distant atolls such as Desroches where you can enjoy fabulous snorkeling, high quality scuba diving, sailing and deep sea fishing. Each luxurious guest villa comes with a couple of bicycles so you can cycle through the coconut plantations to deserted beaches. Typically these islands accommodate around 40 guests.
The Seychelles also has a number of highly exclusive private island resorts such as North Island and Fregate where the accommodation, service and cuisine are among the finest in the world.
