Today much of their surface is national park preserving habitats and ecosystems so that make a living museum of natural history and a sanctuary for some of the rarest species in the world.

 

The Seychelles have among their treasures two UNESCO World Heritage sites: the legendary Vallée de Mai and Aldabra, the largest raised coral atoll in the world. In this paradise enviable temperatures are always warm and without extremes. During the course of evolution the Seychelles have remained faithful to its multi-ethnic roots, for over two centuries remained a melting pot of races, traditions and religions from the four corners of the world. I am an archipelago consisting of several islands very different to this the ideal is a combination of several islands.

Why go to the Seychelles

  • To visit the archipelago by boat and discover the peculiarities of each island

"A primordial and unchangeable panorama, 115 pearls of incomparable beauty scattered like gems in the blue of the sea"

Wild and uninhabited until 200 years ago, more than 1,000 kilometers away from any other land, the Seychelles islands have managed to keep intact their lush beauty. The first to discover the hidden treasures of this paradise were pirates, Arab sailors and adventurers, men passing on a land that was deserted until the late eighteenth century when the French settled there. The population is now made up of a colorful mix of races, a synthesis of ethnicities and groups, a combination of traditions, customs and practices which resulted in the harmonious Creole nation today. Among the 115 earthly paradises forming this beautiful archipelago, are majestic spurs of granite shaped by waves and wind, white beaches fringed by tall palm trees and takamaca, dense vegetation and an endless variety of birds. The archipelago is divided into two types of formations: the granitic "internal" that are located all around the principal islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue, whose verdant peaks rise from the dense tropical forests and beaches of soft white sand and the "external", flat and reefs, scattered into the sea. The infinite diversity of the Seychelles then sweeps by granite mountains covered by pristine forests, beaches caressed Silver Ocean and beyond, in the depth of underwater worlds of breathtaking beauty.

The Seychelles' climate is one which is always warm and does not reach extremes of heat or cold.
The temperature rarely drops below 24°C or rises above 32°C. All but the remotest southern islands lie outside the cyclone belt making Seychelles’ a year round destination for sun worshippers and beach lovers.

It is generally cooler when the north-west trade winds blow during the months of November to March. 
The sea is generally calm and the weather warm and humid, with average winds of 15 - 22 kilometres per hour.
A larger amount of the annual rainfall falls during the months of December to February compared to other months.
The average number of rainy (days with 1 millimetre or more rainfall) in December, January and February are 18, 17 and 11 days respectively. It is also fairly cloudy at times during those months and therefore less sunshine. 

The weather is hottest from December to April, and the humidity is high - often 80% or higher.
The months of May to October bring drier, cooler weather, and livelier seas - particularly on south-eastern coasts – and winds of 19 -37 kilometres per hour are common.
On average the number of rainy days during this period is 11 with long periods of sunshine.Dry spells of two weeks or more are fairly common.
