Seychelles : Sailing under the tropical sunshine.
Located in the Indian Ocean, next to Madagascar, the Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands first discovered and explored in the 16th century by Vasco de Gama. In the beginning, the islands were part of the French colonies, then they were a British colony before gaining independence in 1976. In the light of this eventful past, these islands sure have a lot of historical heritage to share with visitors. Apart from having an interesting history to discover, the Seychelles provide a natural shelter to many different animal or vegetal species. Drop the anchor on one of the islands and begin the exploration into wilderness, mixed with history.
The main island not to miss when coming to visit the Seychelles is Mahé. It houses the capital of the archipelago, Victoria, named after the former Queen of the British Empire. The city offers a wide variety of places to go to. From the market where you can purchase fresh and local food or local handicraft as souvenirs, to the Hindu Temple and its exceptional architecture, or the Botanical Garden of Victoria. Mahé also gives people the opportunity to enjoy nice hiking sessions for example on the Morne Seychellois.
For those looking for a relaxing and/or tanning spot, the Seychelles offer the best of beaches around the world. Anse Source d’Argent on the island called La Digue is one of them: with its white sand and blue azure water, it promises a great chill time. After having a nice rest, you can visit the Union Estate Park where you walk in the middle of coconut trees, vanilla plants and encounter giant turtles.
If you are looking for more paradise beaches, all the islands of this archipelago will offer you the warm and tropical spot you need.
