Seychelles is an island nation, located in the Indian Ocean close to the east of Africa, known for its breathtaking beauty. It is an archipelago of 115 islands, 45 of which are granitic islands, while 74 are coralline islands. Its capital and largest city is Victoria, which is the smallest capital city in the world. Popular as the island of love, Seychelles’ surreal beauty makes it a popular luxurious honeymoon destination. The most visited islands of Seychelles are Mahe, Praslin and La Digue.
Seychelles is home to over 45 beautiful powdery white beaches lined with swaying palms. With the whitest and thinnest sand, these are some of the world’s best sand beaches. The award-winning Anse Source d’Argent Beach is also located in Seychelles, on La Digue island.
Giant Tortoise and UNESCO Heritage Site
Some islands of Seychelles, like the uninhabited Curieuse Island, is one of the very few places in the world where a tortoise can be spotted roaming freely in the middle of the road, causing a traffic jam! The UNESCO world heritage site Valle De Mai Natural Reserve is located in Seychelles, on Praslin Island. It is home to the famous coco de mer, the largest seed in the world. The fabled Aldabra, which is the world's largest raised coral atoll, is also found in Seychelles.
Diving & Snorkelling
Like all island nations, Seychelles is ideal for diving and snorkelling. Being less inhabited than Maldives, the underwater life in Seychelles is easier to spot. Numerous schools and diving courses are available on different islands, while Mahe has an underwater scuba centre for beginners, with a shipwreck experience. Other popular water sports in Seychelles include paddleboard, surfing and crystal kayaking.
Seychelles Black Parrot
The Praslin Parrot, also known as the Seychelles Black Parrot, is only found here in the world. It can be spotted only on Praslin island with the breeding area limited to Valle De Mai and Praslin National Park. It is a dark grey-brown parrot with a greyish undertail, giving it a blackish appearance. The Black Parrot is unsurprisingly the national bird of Seychelles.
