The Seychelles, an enchanting archipelago in the Indian Ocean, boasts 115 idyllic islands with diverse landscapes. Granitic islands, including Mahé and Praslin, showcase lush jungles and granite peaks. Coral atolls like Aldabra feature vibrant marine life. Each region embodies unique flora, fauna, and cultural charm, making Seychelles a paradise for nature enthusiasts.
La Digue is the third largest inhabited island of the Seychelles in terms of population, lying east of Praslin and west of Felicite Island. There is no airport on La Digue, in fact, there aren’t any vehicles either, making this the ultimate laid back island retreat.
Mahe is the largest island of the Seychelles, lying in the north east of the nation. Home to the capital city, Victoria, as well as Seychelles International Airport, this is where the majority of holiday resorts and hotels are located.
The Outer Islands are situated beyond the Seychelles Plateau and are scattered over hundreds of kilometres southwest of the main Mahe Group. These less visited islands are pristine miniature worlds and offer untouched habitats for many species of wildlife.
With stunning white sand beaches and lush tropical forests covering the hills, Praslin is a delight.Despite being the second biggest island in the Seychelles it has fraction of the population, inhabited by a mere 6,500 people.
