Useful information about The Seychelles
Créole seychellois, English, French
To explore the ocean floor
Diving is one of the most popular activities with tourists in the Seychelles. And for good reason: the archipelago is home to numerous coral reefs; granite reefs in impressive shapes; large shipwrecks that have been reclaimed by nature; and a rich and varied collection of flora and fauna. Head to the cliffs of Aldabra, the Cosmoledo atoll or the Astove reef to explore the depths. Warning - awe and amazement guaranteed!
To bask in the sun on idyllic beaches
The beaches of the Seychelles are each as beautiful as the next, and all home to truly stunning landscapes. Mahé Island, Praslin Island, Silhouette Island, or Frégate Island (often celebrated as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world): the only thing difficult about finding your dream beach is the endless choice. Enjoy siestas under the shade of a coconut tree or out in the sun, and bathe in crystal-clear water when you travel in the Seychelles
To explore the Morne Seychellois National Park
Spanning some 3,045 hectares and covering around 20% of the island of Mahé, the Morne Seychellois National Park is the largest in the archipelago and home to a large array of hiking routes that will take you deep into the untamed nature of the Seychelles.
Another essential hiking spot is the Vallée de Mai on Praslin Island, a UNESCO nature reserve that has something of the Jurassic Park about it.
To get lost in the streets of Victoria
No stay in the Seychelles would be complete without a trip to the capital city of Victoria. Here you can learn more about the archipelago's history and culture. Things to see & do: admire the bright and colourful Creole houses and the Hindu temple of Arul Mihu Navasakthi Vinayagar; visit the Lorloz clock tower (a miniature version of Big Ben) and get lost in the alleyways of the nearby bazaar, which is Victoria's largest market; and discover the exotic plants and trees of the botanical gardens... Victoria is a goldmine for intrepid explorers.
To take your taste buds on a unique adventure
If you thought the beaches made you forget home fast, wait until you try the local food and drink. Dishes here are a whirlwind of flavours, enchanting fragrances and colour. Discover the archipelago’s huge selection of fish that can be enjoyed grilled or steamed, its exotic spices and its sun-kissed fruits and vegetables.
Cuisine in the Seychelles is a clever mix of styles, often with Creole at its heart.
