Seychelles – an island paradise

Book flights to the island paradise of the Seychelles to enjoy the kind of sun, sea and sand that dreams are made of.

In the capital Victoria, on Mahé Island, you’ll find cultural attractions alongside UNESCO World Heritage Sites, lush green hills and secret coves scattered through the surrounding cays.

From Round Island, you can snorkel in the waters of Sainte Anne National Marine Park, where the fish are joined by giant Seychellois tortoises.

It’s easy to see why the Seychelles is such a popular destination. The islands remain hot and sunny all year round, with temperatures averaging 27°C. Typically, November to January sees the most rainfall.

The south-east trade winds hit the country from May to September, causing slightly rougher seas on some south-facing coasts, important should you be planning a diving trip. From October through to April the gentler north-west trade winds blow.

Reasons to visit the Seychelles

Discover your own beach paradise

White sand beaches and turquoise waters are among the first things to spring to mind when you think about the Seychelles – and with good reason.

Trying to decide which ‘anse’ – Creole for ‘bay’ – to spend your time on can be a challenge, as each beach in the archipelago is utterly beautiful.

Anse Intendance on Mahé’s southern coast boasts white sands, palm trees and dramatic boulders against a backdrop of verdant hills. At the other end of the island, Beau Vallon is Mahé’s longest beach and its most popular, with restaurants and plenty of water sports to enjoy.

Anse Source d’Argent on La Digue Island is often voted the best beach in the world – its stunning features have seen it serve as a location for a string of Hollywood movies.

The Vallée de Mai on Praslin Island has been described as a modern day Garden of Eden, and it’s now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

It’s one of just two locations where Coco de Mer Palms grow in their natural habitat – a rare form of palm tree that produces the largest seed in the world. There are more than 1,400 of these trees growing in this must-see forest.

Delicious Creole food

Creole flavours abound in the Seychelles and it’s not surprising that fresh fish is always on the menu in this island nation.

Grilled fish is enjoyed across the islands, along with curries flavoured with delicate spices, aromatic lamb stews and coconut-infused rice dishes.

Locals eat breadfruit in lots of different ways, but the most common is fried and salted to make crisps. Grab a bag to try while you’re sightseeing around the islands.
