One of our favourite Indian Ocean destinations, Seychelles should definitely be on everyone’s bucket-list!
The Republic of Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands but only a few of them are inhabited. The islands of the Seychelles archipelago cluster around the main island of Mahé, home to the international airport and the capital, Victoria, and its neighbouring islands of Praslin and La Digue. Together, these Inner Islands form the cultural and economic hub of the nation and contain the majority of Seychelles’’ tourism facilities as well as its most stunning beaches.
The cosmopolitan Seychellois are a colourful blend of peoples of different races, cultures and religions. At different times in its history, people of African, European and Asian origin have come to Seychelles, bringing with them their distinct traditions and customs and contributing to the way of life and to the vibrant Seychellois culture.
The Inner Islands are home to some of the Indian Ocean’s most beautiful and ultra-luxurious resorts but that does not mean that cheaper options are not available. With a bit of research you will find accommodations to suit most budgets. If you feel like splurging though, few tropical destinations can match it!
