Average temperature 27 degrees centigrade, average hours of sunshine 7 hours per day all year round, sounds rather nice doesn’t it? This is what you will find in the beautiful Seychelles. They are an archipelago of 115 islands set within the Indian Ocean. These green and lush islands are a wonderful destination for romance, golf, snorkelling, scuba diving or just relaxing in beautiful surroundings on white velvet beaches with crystal clear ocean all around.
The Seychelles has a lot to offer with approximately 10 of the islands housing beautiful hotels, offering outstanding service and friendly faces at every turn. There are many options to choose from, ranging from golf and spa resorts to diverse properties set within the jungle hillsides filled with orchids.
The islands lend themselves to island hopping, the geography is striking with lush forestry, plunge pools deep in the tropics and dramatic natural rock formations. The islands are a paradise for naturalists with different flora and fauna around every corner.
Mahe is the largest island which is home to the capital Victoria, the second largest island is Praslin which is home to a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Vallee de Mai, a prehistoric forest dominated by the coco-de mer palm which produces the world’s largest plant seed. All of the islands have their own personalities and we can match you to your island!
The best time to visit the Seychelles is between April and December, with low season between January and March although during low season you will often benefit from excellent prices.
Travelling to the islands is very easy, flights go via either Dubai or Abu Dhabi, creating an excellent opportunity for you to stop over in one of these exciting cities before your trip to paradise should you wish. Flying time from London to the Seychelles is approximately 10 hours, the time change is only +4 hours on GMT, no visas are required and neither are vaccinations, giving you few excuses not to go!
