The Seychelles

Magnificent forests, fine white sandy beaches, imposing ancient granite boulders and crystal-clear, warm turquoise seas – this is Seychelles. The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 tropical islands stretching from 4 to 11 degrees south of the Equator, around 1000km off the east coast of Africa in the Western Indian Ocean.

41 of the 115 islands are some of the oldest mid-ocean granitic islands in the world, formed more than 40 million years ago. Coral quays, atolls and reefs make up the remaining 74, many of them uninhabited. Humans arrived only recently, settling in 1770. This has resulted in the continuing presence of many unique and endemic plants, animals and birds, and an abundant biodiversity of marine life. The climate in Seychelles is idyllic – the inner islands lie outside the cyclone belt, and the temperature ranges between 24 – 34 degrees Celcius all year-round.
