Seychelles

Overview

  • Flight Time: 11 Hours
  • Time Zone: UTC +4:00
  • Best Time to Travel: April - August

Located in the western Indian Ocean between 4° and 10° south of the equator is The Seychelles Islands. This unique travel destination is renowned for its timeless beauty, tranquility and diversity, which rolls from emerald green rainforests down to crystal clear turquoise waters, home to some of the rarest species of flora and fauna on earth.

The world’s only granite islands in mid-ocean, the world’s oldest ocean islands, the world’s largest raised coral atoll and a whole host of attractions make up what is surely the world’s ultimate tropical paradise. The Seychelles are made up of 115 granitic and coralline islands, covering a total land mass of 455 km² scattered across an Exclusive Economic Zone of nearly 1.4 million km² between 4° and 10° south of the equator in the western Indian Ocean. Of these 115 islands, 41 constitute the oldest mid-oceanic granite islands on earth while a further 74 form the low-lying coral atolls and reef islands of the Outer Islands. A unique range of endemic species has evolved in the archipelago. This biodiversity is protected within two UNESCO World Heritage Sites ( Vallee de Mai in Praslin and Aldabra ) as well as several impressive Nature Reserves and National Parks.
