On the Inner Islands, glorious white beaches and crystalline
turquoise waters are backdropped by dramatic cloud-wreathed peaks.
And to the south, a chain of tiny atolls extends for hundreds of
miles. Easily accessible to people seeking Seychelles holidays or
honeymoons, the main island of Mahé contains the international
airport, most of the hotels and more than 90 percent of the
country's 75,000 population.
Rare plant life thrives on this Indian Ocean archipelago: no
less than 81 species are unique survivors from the luxuriant
tropical forests that covered the islands until humanity's arrival
two centuries ago; outstanding amongst these is the coco-de-mer,
native to Praslin, which grows in the Vallée de Mai. The
astonishing habitats of the Morne Seychellois National Park -
mountain peaks towering over marshy mangroves, leading to an
impressive natural range - are inspiring to all on Seychelles
holidays or honeymoons.
The Seychelles is also a major holiday destination for
birdwatchers. Up to two million sooty terns nest on Bird
Island, and on Aride can be found the world's largest colonies of
lesser noddies, roseate terns, amongst other tropical
birds. Holiday amidst nature on the secluded Bird
Islands and experience the ultimate Crusoe getaway.
A vast living world lies just below the turquoise waters,
including Aldabara, the world's largest raised coral atoll,
beckoning divers of all levels on Seychelles honeymoons or
holidays. Swim amongst sharks - an option for the daring at
the aptly named Shark Bank.
For body and mind, no other tropical destination is as
welcoming, fulfilling and safe.
