Scattered in the impossibly clear Indian Ocean, the stunning Seychelles are about as far away from reality as you can get. Think deserted beaches with sugary sand, rainbow coral reefs, ancient rainforests, exotic wildlife and misty waterfalls. This is exactly how paradise islands look in pictures – and it’s every bit as gorgeous in real life.

There isn’t a great deal to do here besides kick back and luxuriate in the first class hotels, so it should come as no surprise that the Seychelles are loved by newlyweds. Spend languid days relaxing and taking in the awesome scenery.

Wile away magical evenings gazing at sublime sunsets and starry skies. Take your pick from our selection of wonderful Seychelles hotels, where you can enjoy excellent service and breathtaking views. Secluded, seductive and indulgent; the Seychelles are quite simply paradise found.

Best time to go

The Seychelles’ tropical climate means they’re warm all year round, but the best time to visit is between April and October.

Things to do

Relax, sunbathe, sip a drink, swim a little... Doing nothing is the order of the day in the Seychelles, but if you do manage to move from your sun lounger, you’ll find interesting colonial history, gorgeous scenery and amazing wildlife. Getting around by car, bicycle or even ox carts is easy and boat trips allow you to discover the pretty outlying islands. Don’t miss the chance to dive or snorkel in the coral reefs. Head to Victoria on largest island Mahé for great shopping. The interior of Praslin is all misty waterfalls and other worldly flora and fauna – and it begs to be explored.

Food and drink

Food in the Seychelles bears the signature of the many different cultures who have stopped by over the years. The result is a tantalising choice of dishes; from gourmet French cuisine to spicy meals infused with African and Asian flavours. Trees in the Seychelles drip with fruit, meaning you’ll get plenty of chances to taste bananas, mangoes, coconuts and other totally tropical fruits.

Health and entry requirements

It is your responsibility to ensure you have the correct travel insurance and vaccinations and / or special medication for your destination. Please consult your GP for advice at least one month ahead of travel. It is essential that you meet the visa and passport requirements for your chosen destination. Visit the Foreign & Commonwealth Office ( website for up to date entry requirements listed by country.
