Seychelles Travel Guide

A true Garden of Eden, the heavenly islands that make up the Seychelles are complete bliss. Renowned for the giant granite boulders that decorate the silver sand shores, the Seychelles is justly unique.

Between islands you will find different charms. There is the colourful capital of Victoria on Mahe Island, the Valle De Mai UNESCO World Heritage on Praslin Island and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world on La Digue Island.

Getting There

By Air – Flights from the UK to the Seychelles generally go via a Middle Eastern hub airport. You can arrive in paradise after only a 13 hour journey.

Small sea planes can be a great way to travel if you are looking to island hop.

By Road – As the islands are all small in size, road transfers between the airport and your hotel generally take about 30 minutes and are a great way to see the scenery.
