Things to Do:

A Seychelles holiday experience is one bursting with diversity as is reflected by the array of packages on offer.  Whether you are looking for a wedding, honeymoon or other holiday with a romantic overtone or a great fishing, diving or sailing experience at the right price,

  • Secluded Beaches: It’s ridiculously easy to find a deserted beach or cove to call your own for the day in the Seychelles—complete with sugar-soft sand and gin-clear, warm waters.
  • Exotic Palms: Praslin Island, home to the World Heritage Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve, is one of only two places in the world where the gigantic (and erotic looking) coco de mer palm tree can be found.
  • Diving Spots: The Seychelles islands are home to six marine national parks, home to whale sharks, rare hawksbill turtles and thousands of tropical fish. One of the top dive spots is Shark Bank, where scuba divers can weave through boulders and spot stingrays, puffer fish and a sunken tanker.
  • Explore by Yacht: Charter a yacht or rent a clipper for a few days to explore the 115 islands in the Seychelles archipelago.
  • Inland Discoveries: Want a break from simply lying on the beach? Explore the thick jungles of Praslin or the eerie granite rock formations on La Digue.
  • Hiking Trails: Hikers have a lot of options. Morne Seychellois National Park has coastal mangrove forests and the Seychelles’ highest peak, and trails are dotted with wild ginger, cinnamon and vanilla.
  • Tortoises and More: The flora and fauna are unique. The Seychelles has the largest population of Aldabra giant tortoises in the world, which were thought to be extinct since the 19th century.
  • Bicycle Trek: Explore the island of La Digue—which has only one surfaced road and where the main form of transportation is an ox cart—by bicycle.
  • World Cuisine: The Seychelles’ cuisine is a unique blend of African, Chinese, English, French and Indian flavours, which means you can tuck into dishes like tamarind grilled fish wrapped in banana leaves
  • Parasail Away: While the waters around the Seychelles are known for their brilliant underwater show, you can also view paradise from above on a parasailing adventure. Experience the thrill of floating high above the Indian Ocean with the wind rushing past and the open skies your highway.
