The Seychelles is a tapestry of more than 100 exquisite island jewels on an azure expanse of Indian Ocean about 575 miles northeast of Madagascar. These tiny specs of intense green islands are comprised of coral atolls and stunning lagoons fringed with golden sands. Swaying coconut fronds, the sweet scent of frangipani flowers, dramatic orange sunsets, lush plantations and colorful flora are an intrinsic part of the sheer magic and natural beauty of these remote islands, which remain virtually untouched by the modern world. While most visitors are drawn to the pristine beaches and turquoise waters the Seychelles is also home to UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the legendary Vallée de Mai on Praslin Island where the wondrously shaped Coco-de-mer nut grows high on ancient palms. Another natural wonder is fabled Aldabra, the world’s largest raised atoll, first seen by Arab seafarers in the 9th Century. Day and night temperatures in the Seychelles range between 28 and 34 degrees celcius, which makes these islands perfect for those wanting an extra special holiday to relax and rejuvenate before returning home revived and refreshed.
