Seychelles

Fancy a true holiday of a lifetime on the unforgettable island of the Seychelles?

From the moment you set foot on the incredible beaches or swim in the crystal-clear waters you’ll instantly realise that this is a place where all the stresses and strains from modern life simply float away.

An archipelago of more than 100 islands, the beautiful waters are not just perfect for snorkelling, scuba diving and kayaking but, thanks to the luscious vegetation around, they’re great for island-hopping too. We make no apology for signposting customers here – we know the talcum powder-esque beaches are a firm favourite, so it’s a place to return to time and again.

Whether it is the surfer’s paradise of Intendance Beach, the rugged nature of Anse Lazio or the intimacy of Silhouette Island, there is a beach perfectly suited to you.

In such luxurious natural surroundings, the five-star resorts and outstanding hotels are up there with some of the best in the world, while renowned spas are waiting to make you feel even more relaxed and refreshed. It’s certainly true that a holiday to the Seychelles ticks the box perfectly for R&R, but the island also has a rich cultural heritage which it would be a crime to ignore.

The Natural History Museum can be found in Victoria, with the capital city also hosting a popular and colourful market and shopping area. Or, if you are looking for some of the best sights the island has to offer, the Mission Lodge Lookout is the place for you. Once you reach the top, where Queen Elizabeth II once enjoyed tea, you will be greeted by sweeping sea and mountain views.

The Seychelles offers a perfect balance between beautiful beaches and idyllic scenery, alongside fine cuisine and fascinating culture. While most travellers stick to the islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue, picturesque white sands come as standard in the Seychelles, so consider the lesser known options too. Bliss is guaranteed.
