The Seychelles is an archipelago in the Indian ocean, north east of Madagascar and sixteen hundred kilometres east of Kenya. Of the one hundred and fifteen islands, few are inhabited. The majority of the population live on the granite islands of the Inner Seychelles. The main island is Mahe with the capital Victoria. The international airport lies close to the capital. The other major tourist islands are Prasalin and La Digue. If you are looking for pristine beaches with soft, sun bleached sands and warm seas, a Seychelles holiday will certainly fit the bill. There is good provision of water sports and snorkellers will be thrilled with the numerous species they will find in the coral reef. Do take notice of warning signs on the beach as the wind and the currents on certain days make swimming rather dangerous. Sports on the island include golf, tennis, badminton, riding, biking and hiking. Take care on the roads of Mahe as they are narrow and local drivers tend to drive quickly.
You'll be delighted by the renowned Creole hospitality you receive in the Seychelles. Accommodation, whether it be hotel or apartment, reaches very high standards indeed with a wealth of amenities and excellent service. Restaurants serve a delicious fusion of African, French, Indian and Chinese cuisine. As you'd expect, surrounded by the fertile ocean, many of the dishes are fish based. Victoria, with its nightclubs and discos has a lively nightlife, but around the islands much of the evening entertainment is hotel based. The Seychelles offers no great shopping experience but there is a good market in Victoria and several around the islands where you can purchase locally crafted goods.
Good value Seychelles holidays can be enjoyed at any time of the year as the temperature varies little from month to month, lying around thirty throughout the year. What does change is the precipitation, with tropical rain showers at their heaviest from December to the end of February.
