Seychelles is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world, with arguably the best beaches, stunning natural beauty and a wealth of adventurous activities to try. This tropical paradise should be on everyone’s summer holiday getaway list – here’s why.
Welcome to Seychelles, a must-see location if you are thinking of travelling anywhere with abundant sun, sand and giant tortoises.
This luxury destination is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, a dot off the coast of East Africa. But we all know that dynamite comes in small packages as Seychelles was once named ‘The Original Garden of Eden’ for a reason.
Packed with elegant resorts, your 2022 summer vacation will take you to an unspoilt tropical paradise on the mainland called Mahé. Still, you want to have Curieuse Island on your list. This island is a beautiful quiet spot crawling with giant tortoises. It’s one of the only places in Seychelles where they roam freely, and there is plenty of foliage around to feed them.
If the slow life isn’t for you, another great option is La Digue Island. This is Seychelle’s most picturesque spot for anyone looking to kick back and relax. Everyone gets around the island on bicycles. And there are plenty of tropical beaches to explore. The most iconic of them all has to be Anse Source d’Argent.
It’s the most photographed beach in the world and features incredible white sands with intriguing rock formations. You could probably get enough shots in one day to fill your Instagram for a month. The water gets deep slowly here as well, meaning you can walk far out into the ocean and step into nature.
Okay, so if you’re fed up with relaxing and need a little more adventure on your trip, there are plenty of things on offer in Seychelles to help fulfil your adrenaline. For example, why not visit a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which houses the cocoa demand found on Praslin island?
The plants are so huge there that it feels like you’ve stepped onto the set of Jurassic Park. Scuba diving in Seychelles is out of this world. Not only will you see incredible corals and a wide variety of tropical fish, but you’ll likely see turtles if you go diving in the right places – the island cannot get enough of them.
If nature is where it’s at for you, ziplining through forest canopies couldn’t be a better suggestion. You can do this at any resort or take a helicopter ride to see some of the most sensational spots available from the best vantage points.
Either way, island-hop, explore or kick your feet up on the white golden sands of paradise. Seychelles is the place to be.
