The Seychelles consists of more than 100 islands in the Indian Ocean and is the definitive unspoilt tropical paradise, where gorgeous palm-fringed white sandy beaches meet the ocean, brimming with a kaleidoscope of fish and turtles, ideal for diving and snorkelling. It goes without saying you will find some of the most exclusive luxury hotels and resorts to stay in, either on the main islands of Mahé or Praslin, or more boutique castaway retreats, hidden on secluded private islands such as Fregate, Desroches and North Island. Praslin is the second largest island in the Seychelles. With its soft white sand and crystal-clear waters, Anse Lazio is considered not just the best beach in Praslin but one of the best in the whole Seychelles archipelago – and possibly even the world! The lush tropical vegetation in the Seychelles supports an exceptional biodiversity, and there are unique orchid species and large seabird colonies. The islands are varied; from the untouched coral atolls of the Outer Islands to the larger granitic tropical Inner Islands where the biodiversity is astonishing. Here you can enjoy the sailing experience of a lifetime – safe moorings and easy sailing distances will open up a world of diversity and breathtaking natural beauty.
