Seychelles coasts and islands

Seychelles

The Seychelles is a country that governs an archipelago of 115 islands divided into two groups, the outer islands and the inner islands, constituting a nation, located in the Indian ocean.

The Inner Islands, mainly from granite, are bonded around the main islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue, forming the cultural and economic heart of the Seychelles.

The Outer Islands are located beyond the Seychelles plateau and consist only of atolls, lonely beaches and rocky outcrops.

These are less visited because of their distance from the main islands but offer breathtaking scenery and untouched habitats for many species of plants and animals.

The climate is warm and tropical all year round which makes possible a stay at any time, but in periods of calm between the trades and that is to say the months of April / May and October / November, the already favorable weather conditions adds lack of wind.

The sea becomes calm and clear with temperatures touching 29º C and visibility 'reaches most' of 30 meters.

These islands offer fabulous scenery and emotions both for those who enjoy water activities such as swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving, both for those who love trekking and long walks in contact with wildlife.

Seychellois population is characterized by the variety of races, cultures and creeds.

In different periods of history, African, European and Asian have come to Seychelles, bringing with them their traditions and customs and contributing to enriching lifestyle.

These influences can be clearly identified by observing the art, cuisine, music, dance and architecture.

Seychelles is a living museum of natural history and a sanctuary for some of the rarest species in the world.

Aware of the incredible natural wealth of their territory, the Seychelles have quickly embraced a wide-ranging environmental policy.

Today, approximately 50% of their surface area is national park to preserve unique habitats and ecosystems.
