The Seychelles archipelago is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt places on earth.
The Seychelles simply exude spirit
and serenity and the small archipelago in the western Indian Ocean
is deliciously remote, brimming with picture-perfect beaches and is
quite simply a taste of paradise. Whether it's for a honeymoon or a
trip to celebrate children flying the nest, Seychelles is the
We recommend the best way to see the Seychelles in all their glory
is to take a little time on each by island hopping. From Mahe with
its amazing beaches and perfectly petite capital, Victoria, to
Praslin with the breath-taking Vallee de Mai National Park,
Seychelles has so much to offer.
Dishes to delight
The local delicacy is octopus and the area's also known for its
tantalisingly fresh fish. Although it may take a little getting
used to, curried fruit bat is another special dish from the
Seychelles. To ensure you still eat your five-a-day whilst on
holiday, the Seychelles grows breadfruit, which is prickly on the
outside and resembles potato when peeled and cooked and jamalc, a
smooth-skinned, often conical shaped fruit which tastes a little
like an apple.
