A Seychelles holiday would not be complete without exploring the incredible scenery and townships amongst the islands.
– there are a huge amount of islands to visit in the Seychelles. There are lots of boat cruises to choose from – the only difficulty should be choosing which ones to go on.
– there are many hiking opportunities on the island, and each trail allows you to explore the islands and their amazing sights. Walk through coconut plantations, cinnamon forests and rubber trees and wonder at the amazing natural beauty of the landscape.
– If you’re heading to Victoria, look out for market day (particularly Saturdays). Fresh fruit and vegetables, souvenirs, herbs and spices and clothing are all sold here – and apart from a great present buying destination, it’s also a great way to soak up the island atmosphere.
– after all that activity, the beach starts calling, and they don’t come better than a Seychellois beach. Cocktails, a beach lounger, the sound of the sea and a coco de mer palm to rest under – the Seychelles is arguably the most perfect place to unwind on the planet.
