    WELCOME TO THE SEYCHELLES

    A dream comes true of calm azure waters, deserted beaches, tropical paradise and turquoise lagoons. This string of islands offers sparkling white sandy beaches and coral reefs bustling with sea life. The flora and fauna are unique, the mountains are covered in lush vegetation, and the landscapes offers a stunning and multi-faceted panorama.


    HISTORY

    The Seychelles were uninhabited when the British East India Company arrived on the Archipelago in 1609. Thereafter, they became a favourite private haven. The French claimed the islands in 1756 and administered them as part of the colony of Mauritius. The British gained control of the islands through the Treaty of Paris (1814) and changed the islands’ name from the French Seychelles to the Anglicized Seychelles. The island became self-governing in 1975 and independent on June 29, 1976. Since then they have remained a member of the Commonwealth of Nations.


    GENERAL INFORMATION

    The temperature seldom drops below 24°C or rises above 32°C making Seychelles a year round destination for sun worshippers and beach lovers. During the north-west trade winds that occur between the October and March, the sea is generally calm and the weather warm and humid, with average winds of 8-12 knots. In January and February the islands receive their life-giving rains, rejuvenating the rivers and streams and teasing the vibrant foliage into rainbows of colour. From May to September the weather is cooler and drier with livelier seas - particularly on the south-eastern coasts.

    The Seychelles is ideal for an indulgently laid-back holiday offering a peaceful retreat that will rejuvenate your soul. The scenic beauty and magical spirit of Seychelles promise an unforgettable journey for those who visit the tropical paradise. Famous for their luxurious resorts, many with exotic spas and fine-dining restaurants, these islands offer an exclusive hideaway from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

    For visitors who can tear themselves away from the beaches and water sports, the Seychelles offers a wide variety of other things to see and do. From the prehistoric rainforest of Praslin’s National Park to the 70 beaches of Mahé, all is beauty and calm. You could take an excursion to Mahé’s capital, Victoria, to admire its colonial mansions and meet the giant tortoises at the botanical gardens. You can visit tiny islands such as beautiful La Digue, perhaps joining local fishermen in their boat for a day’s angling in the abundant waters.

    Seychelles' 115 islands fall under two distinct groups; the outstandingly beautiful granitic islands, the world’s only oceanic islands of granitic rock and coral islands fringed by white sandy beaches and encircled by coral reef teaming with fish and the flatter coralline islands.

    Granitic Islands

    • Mahe
    • Praslin
    • La Digue
    • Fregate
    • Silhouette Island
    • North Island

    Mahe
    The first port of call for most visitors to the Seychelles is Mahe. This is the largest island of the Seychelles and the largest granitic island – 27 km long and 8 km wide and rises out of the ocean like a continent. Forming the backbone of the island is a spectacular mountain range that includes Morne Seychellois, the island’s highest peak. Around the peak is one of the island’s beautiful national parks, offering good hiking and stunning scenery. More than 60 idyllic beaches fringed with swaying palm trees can be found along the shoreline, offering a host of activities including diving and fishing. There are several interesting sights to see, particularly in friendly Victoria.

    Praslin
    Praslin is the second largest island of the Seychelles, 44 km north east of Mahe and can be reached by plane or ferry. This island is a popular tourist destination with several hotels and resorts, as well as the famous beaches of Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette. The beautiful Vallee de Mai is known for the unique Coco de Mer.

    La Digue
    La Digue is a small island accessible by ferry from Praslin. Here cars are shunned in favour of bicycles and ox-carts. A timeless oasis, hidden away in the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean, guarded by warm azure waters and fringed by teeming reefs, La Digue is the Seychelles of yesteryear. Home to some of the most beautiful beaches, La Digue also boasts the friendliest people and most tranquil, serene and relaxing atmosphere.

    Fregate
    A 20-minute flight away from Mahé, Frégate is a private island of outstanding natural beauty; a uniquely peaceful setting of verdant, tropical interiors and abundant nature fringed by seven dream beaches, each a brilliant sweep of powdery white sand sentinelled by giant, iconic granite boulders. The preservation, protection and nurture of its unique flora and fauna has always been - and continues to be - a fundamental raison d’être for Frégate Island Private. With only 16 villas, guests are invited to experience the rare luxuries of space, security and seclusion within a tropical island setting of exuberant natural beauty.

    Silhouette
    Silhouette Island lies seventeen kilometres off Beau Vallon Bay on the west coast of Mahe featuring the second highest mountain in the archipelago. The islands thickly wooded rocky slopes fall steeply down to the shoreline with countless streams and waterfalls. Labriz, is a luxury resort for those with a taste for the spectacular. Accommodation is provided in either Pavilions boasting a spacious living room and bathroom, with a sun deck opening out to a private pool and garden, Beach Villas – including six with a plunge pool – overlooking the ocean sunrise and the crystal-clear lagoon and Garden Villas featuring a courtyard with tropical garden.

    North
    With conservation of the environment as the main focus, the exclusive North Island is set in a natural habitat of rehabilitated and endangered fauna and flora – a sanctuary of peace lapped by warm tropical waters. This beautiful island captures the true essence of Seychelles. This is the ultimate in privacy and luxury. North Island offers guests a rare slice of tropical island magic with exclusive villas on the beach and service tailored to suit every need and lifestyle.

    INSURANCE
    We strongly recommend that you take out travel insurance providing cover for medical expenses, baggage loss and loss of funds due to cancellation and curtailment.


    WHAT TO PACK
    As the Seychelles are warm throughout the year it is recommended that you pack light comfortable relaxed clothing. Most resorts are quite casual, so light clothing should be adequate at most times - you may also want to take a thin rain jacket in the event of the occasional rain shower. Don’t forget your beach wear plus sun screen and sun glasses.
