Mother Nature was very generous with these 115 islands scattered in the Indian Ocean, and has spoiled them rotten. Undeniably, the beaches are the big attraction, and what beaches: exquisite ribbons of pearlescent sand lapped by topaz waters and backed by lush hills and big glacis boulders. And hardly a soul in sight. Choosing your favourite beach is like trying to pick a flavour of ice cream – they’re all so good! Hot favourites include world-famous Anse Source d’Argent, secluded Anse Marron, sexy Anse Takamaka and picture-postcard perfect Anse Lazio.
Diving and snorkelling are the most popular activities in the Seychelles, and rightly so. Healthy reefs, canyon-like terrain, shallow shelves, exciting shipwrecks, impressive granite outcrops and splendid coral gardens give divers and snorkellers almost instant access to a variety of environments. The water is warm and clear, and teeming with life from the tiniest juvenile tropical to the largest pelagic creature, including whale sharks. Whether you’re an experienced diver or slapping on fins for the first time, there are sites for all levels. And you’ll be welcomed by qualified, multilingual instructors in state-of-the-art dive centres.
White-sand beaches, secluded coves, coral-coloured sunsets, swish hotels, slick restaurants, hushed spas. With such a dreamlike setting, it’s not surprising that honeymooners and those seeking a glamorous tropical getaway have long had the Seychelles at the top of their wish lists. You too can live the high life at one of the country’s star-spangled hotspots, provided you have the cash. If you’re not a millionaire, fear not. This paradise is more affordable than you think. On top of ultraluxurious options, the Seychelles has plenty of self-catering facilities and family-run guesthouses that are easier on the wallet and offer local colour.
Charge your camera batteries, people – the Seychelles is not dubbed ‘The Galàpagos of the Indian Ocean’ for nothing. Watching sea turtles nesting on Bird Island’s sandy beaches or giant Aldabra tortoises roaming freely on Curieuse is one of those once-in-a-lifetime experiences. If you’re hoping to spot sooty terns, tropicbirds, warblers and magpie robins in their natural habitats, the bird sanctuaries of Aride, Cousin, and Bird Islands should figure heavily in your planning. And Praslin’s Vallée de Mai is a slice of Eden where you can see the very rare coco de mer palms in their natural state.
If you have fresh catch, all the better, if not you can use other fresh fish. The local favourite is the red snapper (bourzwa) and the rabbit fish (kordonnyen) cooked with chillies either in a hot oven or on open fire. It’s another must-have at celebration events. Careful though, it can be quite hot and spicy.
This one has a distinctive sour taste. It’s boiled shark mashed and mixed with local lime juice or the bilimbi as it is commonly known with onions, pepper and other spices.
This is usually large ripe plantain cooked with coconut milk and sugar.
It’s a definitely a must-taste dish.
Sainte Anne Marine National Park comprises 6 islands off the northeast coast of Mahé Island, Seychelles. The islands are known for their beaches, luxury resorts and Creole restaurants. Offshore, dive sites have coral reefs and swaths of seagrass with dolphins and hawksbill turtles. Moyenne Island is home to pirates’ graves and the ruins of early settlers’ homes. Tiny, uninhabited Ile Cachée is a nature reserve.
Cousin Island is a small (34 ha) granitic island of the Seychelles, lying 2 km (1.2 mi) west of Praslin. It is a nature reserve protected under Seychelles law as a Special Reserve. It is managed by Nature Seychelles, a national nonprofit organization and Partner of Birdlife international, by which it has been identified as an Important Bird Area.
