Overview

If you have ever wanted to "get away from it all," there may be no better place to do so than in the Seychelles. The Seychelles are secluded, for one thing. The 115 islands making up this archipelago are about 1,000 miles from the eastern coast of Africa and are located in the middle of the Indian Ocean. Spreading out over 150,000 square miles, or 400,000 square kilometers of the Indian Ocean, the islands are made of granite with tropical plants and coral atolls that are very small, but very beautiful. The islands possess some of the most stunningly beautiful scenery in the world. They are perfect for relaxing and taking a break from the rest of the world. The Seychelles are a great destination for taking the time to recharge and enjoy life for awhile. And on top of it, there are many affordable options for traveling to the Seychelles.

Because of the isolated nature of the island chain, there are plants and animals in the Seychelles that are found nowhere else on earth. The islands are still quite pristine, since some of them are uninhabited and some of them have only been inhabited in the last century or so. The French and British had dominion in the Seychelles until 1976, but Seychellois independence was not a bloody revolution or coup. The isolated nature of the islands has also had amazing influence over the environment, from the crystalline blue waters, sparkling beaches, to the magnificent coral reefs. The coral atolls have gorgeous lagoons full of a broad variety of marine life.

Aladbra is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is home to more than 150,000 giant tortoises, and it is also the biggest atoll in the whole world. The environmental segregation of the Seychelles is one of the keys to its healthy ecosystems. It is the perfect place for a vacation for anyone, young or old.

The reason Aldabra was made a UNESCO World Heritage Site is because of the pristine coral reef and the ecosystems it supports. Tourists come to the Seychelles from every corner of the earth. The largest island, Mahe, is where the international airport is located, as well as the capital city of Victoria. Mahe is also home to some beautiful white sand beaches that are great for snorkeling and seeing marine life. St. Anne National Park is located a quick boat ride away and is one of the best places in the Indian Ocean for marine life. Land-lubbers should visit Praslin island, which is home to Valee de Mai, which is another UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tropical forest here is the best location for finding the famous coco de mer palm, which produces the world's largest fruit.

Desroches is an island in the Almirantes Group, and is famous for its scuba diving sites. Other islands besides the main three are more secluded. One example is La Digue, where the main form of transport is the ox cart. Here, life is relaxed, and a visit to La Digue is like taking a trip to an earlier time. Many of the Seychelles Islands are destinations for migrant birds. Indeed the Seychelles are a bird watcher's heaven. Because of the perfect climate, birds choose the Seychelles for their stopovers when migrating. Since about half of the Seychelles' land maintained in natural pristine condition, it is an ecological paradise as well.

While the Seychelles may not have as much in the way of fast night life or ambition as other popular tropical destinations, the natural attractions are lifestyle perks you simply cannot find anywhere else. The isolated nature of the island chain is one of its greatest offerings. There really is no better place to get away from the stresses of modern life.
