What To Do

Despite being an island nation, like the Maldives, the Seychelles’ granitic make-up allows a great deal more land-based activities. While snorkelling and diving are still extremely popular in the Seychelles, visitors also have the opportunity to hike around the archipelago’s various parks and reserves. The country’s remoteness means that these parks are home to many endemic species that can’t be found anywhere else in the world, hence its nickname ‘the Galapagos of the Indian Ocean’. The Seychelles are home to around 75 endemic plant species (including the famous Coco de Mer), 12 endemic bird species, and 5 endemic frog species.

The Seychelles also boasts a unique Creole culture for guests to immerse themselves in. Though predominantly of African or Malagasy origin, Creole peoples in the Seychelles include those of French, British, Indian and Chinese ancestry. The result is one of the most eclectic cultures in the world, which becomes evident in all forms of life from religious practice, to language, to architecture. In particular, Creole cuisine benefits from this amalgamation of flavours, the product being mainly a rich blend of spices, fruit, vegetables and fish.

For those wishing to ‘fly and flop’, however, the Seychelles possesses some of the most idyllic beaches in the world, with alabaster sands and warm cerulean waters.
