You are planning a trip to the Seychelles? What luck! Mother Nature was very generous with these 115 islands scattered in the Indian Ocean and spoiled rotten. Undoubtedly, the beaches are the big draw, and what beaches: exquisite ribbons of white sand lapped by topaz and supported by lush hills and glacis boulders. And not a crowd in sight.
What island has to go to? Do not worry about the mass decision. Whether it’s one of the three main islands of Praslin, La Digue or Mahé – its mountainous interior being home to Morne Seychelles National Park – or any remote island, you win the gold.
With an idyllic setting, the Seychelles is, as expected, a place of choice for a honeymoon. But there is more to do than simply cracking open a bottle of champagne with a loved one in a luxury hotel. Having earned a reputation as a paradigm of ecotourism, the Seychelles is a high point to watch birds and giant tortoises in their natural habitat. And a great living world is under the turquoise waters, calling divers of all levels. When you tire of the beaches that you can venture inland on jungle trails, enjoy a meal or enjoy the sublime calm tempo.
And the time has come to spread the word: yes, this paradise is accessible to us all. At the top ultra-luxurious options, Seychelles has a lot of curious, accessible kitchen facilities and guest houses, often located in some of the best land. Although it remains an expensive destination, tourism authorities aim not millionaires, the promotion of these options in the economy. But never fear: the mass tourism that will never be.
