The islands are famous for their idyllic white-sand beaches,
dotted with distinctive granite boulders and lapped by warm
turquoise waters. Pristine
coral reefs offer superb snorkelling
and diving. Almost half of the Seychelles' total landmass is set
aside as nature reserves, with the larger islands having lush
vegetation and nature trails to explore.
Last but not least, the islands' Creole cuisine is a delicious
blend of French and Indian influences. We know the islands
intimately and can explain the various merits of staying on the
private paradises of
Frégate Island and
Cousine or on Praslin, a UNESCO world heritage site.
Whichever island you choose to migrate to, you are guaranteed to
see some of the millions of seabirds who live here or see century
old giant tortoises roaming free. A thousand miles to the west lies
Kenya and the two make for an excellent 'bush and beach'
