The Seychelles can truly be described, without exaggeration, as paradise on Earth. This spectacular necklace of 41 granite and 74 coral islands in the Indian Ocean is a land of perpetual summer, and is renowned for some of the best beaches in the world.
Pristine and uncrowded, the beaches of the Seychelles offer powder-soft sands and sapphire waters teeming with a dizzying display of marine life.
Cousin Island Special Reserve, a superb eco-tourism site, is one of the world’s first island reserves, encompassing the entire island, including the reef around it to a distance of 400m.
