Welcome to
Seychelles

Situated only 4˚ off the equator and quite literally 1000 miles from anywhere.  115 outstandingly beautiful granite and coral islands lie in the Indian Ocean.  The main islands boast miles of white coral beaches, their fringes lapped by the gentle waves of warm turquoise waters.  Tall Takmanka trees line most beaches and the year round temperatures rarely fall below 24˚C.  Conditions for scuba divers and snorkellers are perfect as 1000 different species of coral and some 900 species of colourful fish make the Seychelles their home.  Above the water line, there is water skiing and windsurfing or your can simply 'mess about' in boats.  Serious fishermen are attracted to the big thrills supplied by trying to out-smart marlin, yellowfin and dog tooth tuna.  On land, the flora and fauna provide an endless exotic spectacle and backdrop.
