In the Indian Ocean, some 1500 kilometres to the east of mainland Africa, lay the 115 pristine islands of the Seychelles archipelago.
With its magical, white-sand beaches edged by lush vegetation and turquoise waters, you are likely to believe you have landed in paradise.
And you have. Once considered to be the Garden of Eden, the flawless beauty of the Seychelles is second to none.
The archipelago is divided into two categories of islands: the ‘Inner Islands’ and the ‘Outer Islands’.
The Inner Islands are located to the North, and surround the main island of Mahé. The 43 Inner Islands are mostly granitic islands and are characterized by large granite boulders on their beaches.
The 72 Outer Islands are coralline and are located between 100 and 1100 kilometres away from Mahé. The Outer Islands are further divided into five groups, namely the Amirantes (20 islands) and Aldabra (22 islands), the Southern Coral Group, Alphonse Group and Farquhar Group.
Whether you decide to stay on one of the three main Inner Islands (Mahé, La Digue or Praslin) or venture further to explore the wonders of the Outer Islands, the breath-taking beauty beckons!
