The Republic of Seychelles is a scenic archipelago of 115 islands located northeast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean. It claims some of the most beautiful beaches and scenery in the world and is associated with luxury and elegance. Most resorts can be found on the main islands of Mahe and Praslin. A few high end ones, like the North Island, have their own private islands. On top of ultra-luxurious options, the Seychelles has plenty of quaint, affordable self-catering facilities and guesthouses, most of these are found on the island of La Digue. This island is also home to L’Anse Source D’Argent, one of the world’s top beaches due to the large pink granite rocks studding the coastline, coupled with sandy beaches and palms.
The Seychelles is also a top spot to watch birds and giant tortoises in their natural habitat. And a vast living world lies just below the turquoise waters, beckoning divers of all levels.
