Just four degrees south of the equator, the 115 granitic and coralline islands of the Seychelles make up the world’s only granite-formed oceanic islands. We recommend hopping between the pristine islands on your luxury Seychelles holiday as each has its own distinct character; this is one of the captivating draws. Travelling between them is relatively easy, given the regular domestic flights and ferry services. Unspoiled, timeless and located 1000 miles off the east coast of Africa, Seychelles makes a perfect twin-centre with a safari holiday in Kenya.
WHY TURQUOISE HOLIDAYS LIKES THE SEYCHELLES
‘The picturesque islands of the Seychelles are perfectly placed to put together a bespoke island hopping itinerary. Our Seychelles Holidays offer Robinson Crusoe with a luxury twist’ – Ruth, Seychelles Consultant
WHEN TO GO TO THE SEYCHELLES
Although Seychelles enjoys a pleasant tropical climate year-round, it is at its best between March and November when the Seychelles weather is usually dryer and less humid. April – May and October – November are the best months to discover the crystal-clear waters of the Indian Ocean and the pantone-coloured marine life. Short-lived tropical showers may fall at any time, but you can still expect long hours of sunshine.
REASONS TO VISIT THE SEYCHELLES
1. Turquoise Holidays recommend visiting Mahé for its spectacular views and vibrant culture and Victoria the capital, Praslin for its breath-takingly beautiful beaches, La Digue for its unhurried pace of life and the idyllic Outer Islands for their magnificent ‘castaway’ experience
2. It’s really hard to name our favourite month to visit the Seychelles. Probably the most perfect months are April and October – but May to September is a lovely time to visit too
3. Visit the Seychelles between October - February for a chance to witness the turtle-nestling season when endangered hawksbill and green turtles lay their eggs
4. Beaches – some of the most stunning beaches in the world are found in the Seychelles. Mahe, Praslin and La Digue all boast incredible beaches worth going in search for. Hire a car or bike and explore your island and find beaches with huge granite rock boulders, the most softest white sand and clear blue waters.
