The Seychelles, an archipelago located 1,600 km (1,000 mi) east of the African coast in the Indian Ocean at the crossroad between Asia and Africa, are one of the world’s most beautiful tropical islands destinations.
The archipelago consists of 116 islands spread over 1 million km² of the western Indian Ocean, northeast of Madagascar, with a total land area of 444 km², making the island nation just about the size of Andorra,or 2.5 times the size of Washington, DC.
While the archipelago serves as a tropical, luxury honeymoon hotspot, this island nation is much more than that with its gorgeous landscapes, abundant nature, and rich culture.
The island nation had a population of 92,000 as of 2015. English and French are the official languages with Seychellois Creole being the most widely spoken language.
Seychelles capital is Victoria on Mahe, the largest Island
Things to do in Seychelles
There are plenty of fun things to do in Seychelles. Spend an afternoon in the Vallée de Mai, a stunning nature reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site located on the island of Praslin. As home to the remnants of Seychelles’ original palm jungles and with over 4,000 trees of the legendary Coco de Mer, this historic reserve has often been described as the ‘Garden of Eden’.
You can also lose yourself wandering around rows of attractive and colourful Creole-style buildings, through markets and manicured gardens in Victoria. For a little history, visit the excellent National Museum of History.
On La Digue island, you’ll find L’Union Estate farm, which acts as a sort of ‘theme park’ for Seychellois’ history. In this part of Seychelles, coconut production is sustainable and managed, and visitors get to see an ox-powered oil extraction machine, the historic Old Plantation House, vanilla plantations, a colonial-era graveyard, a boatyard and a tortoise pen. You can rent a bicycle and explore the farm before heading to the famous Anse Source d’Argent beach, which is stunning to say the least.
You will never really go wrong with an island-hopping boat trip, so it goes without saying that this is a must-do if you have enough time (and the money).
