The Seychelles is a stunning island nation set off the east coast of Africa. Here you’ll discover dramatic landscapes, scenic hiking trails, authentic Creole cuisines, World Heritage Sites and much more. What the Seychelles is really famous for though is its beaches, some of which are the finest in the world lined with palm trees, lush vegetation, fine white sands and the warm, crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean. The famous award-winning Anse Source d’Argent beach is located here, which is the world’s most photographed stretch of coastline. Many of the beaches in the Seychelles also offer access to excellent water sports, as well as snorkelling and diving opportunities. The Seychelles is a wildlife lover’s paradise; there are various national parks, botanical gardens, mangrove forests and nature reserves across the islands that provide sanctuary to wildlife and plant species; 12 endemic bird species can be spotted across the archipelago, as well as the largest concentration of Aldabra giant tortoises, hawksbill turtles, geckos and around 2000 species of plants, including the famed Coco de Mer palm tree, jellyfish trees and rare orchids. Brightsun Travel has great value flight offers to the Seychelles, so you can come and explore this idyllic archipelago for yourself.
When you’ve discovered the beaches and natural wonders of the Seychelles, you can look forward to discovering what else these islands have to offer. Visit Mahé, the largest of the islands and a cultural hub home to around 90% of the nation’s population. Victoria, the Seychelles’ bustling capital is located on this island, offering plenty of historic charm with local villages, market stalls, museums and colonial buildings. The Victoria Clocktower is the main highlight of Victoria, which was installed over 100 years ago to replicate a clock near Victoria Station in London. Praslin is the second most populated island in the Seychelles, just a boat ride away from Mahé which boasts the famed Vallee de Mai nature reserve - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and forest covered region home to the rare Seychelles Black parrot. Finally, La Digue is the third most populated island and an off-the-beaten-path gem of the Seychelles. This is a much more serene destination with a slower pace of life, secluded beaches and bays, old buildings and traditional oxcarts that are used instead of cars.
