The Seychelles has 116 islands spread over 788 square miles of the Indian Ocean, four degrees south of the equator and 950 miles north of Mauritius. Only 30 are inhabited, some are coral islands, some volcanic and many designated as natural reserves, a heady mix of raw beauty and exclusivity.
The Seychelles is a delightful combination of African, European and Asian roots with an intriguing history. The country gained independence from Great Britain in 1976 and remains part of the Commonwealth. English and French are both official languages with Creole widely spoken.
The joy of the Seychelles is the variety within the archipelago. Highlights include the island of Praslin fifteen minutes away by plane where the rare coco de mer palm grows in the World Heritage Vallée de Mai and the car-free island of La Digue, home to giant tortoises, colonial-style homes and deserted beaches. Felicite is a tiny granite island covering a little over one square mile. It is a near neighbour to La Digue and famed for its mystical, oversized granite boulders. Dense vegetation including mango trees, coconut palms and banana plantations cover much of Felicite where development has been carefully restricted to preserve the outstanding private island privacy.

The quiet and wilder west coast is only thirty minutes from the airport with dense forests of coconuts and particularly beautiful beaches including Petite Anse and Grande Anse.

The islands of the Seychelles enjoy a year-round warm tropical climate, generally governed by two opposing trade winds. The south-easterly trades blow from May to September bringing drier and windier conditions ideal for sailing. From October to March the gentler north-west trades provide calmer seas but a higher chance of refreshing showers. Scuba divers will find April, May, October and November have the warmest seas and visibility is often 30 metres plus.
