Seychelles is a paradise treasure cove consisting of 115 pristine Islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean where natural beauty is harboured and actively protected from the onslaught of commercialism. The Seychelles is described as a string of pearls, sparkling like jewels across a million miles of Azure Ocean and home to some of the worlds most treasured possessions in the form of endemic species of fauna, birds and animals.
In Seychelles you can witness the true beauty of nature in the famed Vallee de Mai Garden of Eden on Praslin, the dramatic granite formations tumbling into the blue sea and rich vegetation of this tropical Island splendour. This is home to the Paradise fly-catcher, the giant land tortoise, the world’s smallest frog, the Indian Ocean's only flightless bird, the giant coco de mer nut and countless seabird colonies.
Seychelles prides itself on being one of the best snorkeling and diving locations in the world. Fishermen from all over the world are captivated by its abundant waters. There are professional centres for diving, windsurfing, paragliding, snorkeling and other watersports. There are several PADI-rated dive centres on many Islands including Mahe. There are a large variety of boats for hire for fishing of all kinds including deep sea game fishing for tuna, marlin and sailfish.
Legends abound of olden days when pirates travelled these waters and where buried treasures are still sought today. But the true treasure of Seychelles is Seychelles itself and the legend of these Islands and their uniqueness is captured in the saying “Seychelles - Another World”...
