Made up of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, Seychelles coast is a beach lover’s paradise. Every beach reveals yet another stretch of sugar-white sand, backed by lush tropical jungle and lapped by crystal-clear waters.
The most famous is Anse Source d’Argent, with its distinct granite boulders and Hollywood looks. Regularly named the most beautiful beach in the world, and the ‘star’ in movies like Castaway and Crusoe, you’ll find it on the island of La Digue.
Snorkellers will love Anse Lazio on Praslin, Seychelles’ second-largest island. A coral-rich wonderland sits just off the eastern end of this stunning white beach. Beau Vallon on Mahé Island is as lively as it is lovely. And Anse Intendance at the southern end is big, empty, and beautiful.
Seychelles also offers some of the most diverse diving in the world. From coral gardens just offshore, to wildlife-rich deep-water wrecks, there is something for every diver.
Wildlife lovers and birdwatchers will adore Seychelles. The islands are home to the world’s smallest frog and some of its biggest tortoises, as well as 12 endemic species of birds. You can spot Gardiner’s tree frog on the Morne Seychellois hiking trail on Mahé. Birdwatchers will want to seek out the rare Seychelles black parrot, the islands’ national bird, as well as the Seychelles magpie robin and Seychelles warbler – both of which have been saved from extinction. The warbler is most easily spotted on Cousin Island, a former coconut plantation that was turned into a nature reserve when the last of the warblers were discovered there.
As beautiful as the islands of Seychelles are, Seychelles’ food is also equally delectable. Rightly known as Creole or Seychellois cuisine, its flavors have found their inspiration from French, Chinese, and Indian cuisines fused with an interesting blend of its own herbs, spices, and secrets.
Although a journey to this place in Africa is costly, the quality of traveling is exceptionally high. If you are thinking about your safety here, then you must know that the crime rate here is very low, and equal contribution to the economy is present everywhere. If you are planning for a honeymoon or you are simply a diving enthusiast, you must visit this place.
