The world’s most beautiful beach. A world heritage site and some of the best diving on the planet. The Earth’s largest nut. So much about the Seychelles can only be described in superlatives. From its spectacular position in the blood-warm Indian Ocean, to its uniquely-evolved flora and fauna, the archipelago of the 115 islands provides a continuous flow of wild surprises, including coco-de-mer, orchids, giant tortoises, geckos, chameleons and flying foxes. And that is just scratching the surface. Below it are unspoiled coral reefs, a circus of vivid fish, crustacean, marine plant life and endless opportunities to dive, snorkel, fish, boat and bask on the beautiful tropical beaches.
