The Seychelles are unique islands that have no analogues anywhere else in the world, because they are entirely made of granite! It is not for nothing that the Seychelles are considered one of the best places to relax, because almost the entire Seychelles archipelago has preserved its amazing flora and fauna in its original form, and the sandy coasts of the islands are simply amazingly clean. After admiring these wonderful landscapes, do not forget to leave your feedback in the comments, share your impressions and photos.
In this collection, I suggest you make an exciting virtual journey to a real paradise on Earth — that’s what many people call the Seychelles.
In total, the Seychelles archipelago includes 115 granite and coral islands of amazing beauty.
There are only about 75 coral islands, but they are all small atolls, while the main, large Seychelles are granite
The only city in the Seychelles archipelago — the city of Victoria on the island of Mahe — is also the capital of the Seychelles
The Seychelles remained untouched until 1770, when French sailors first landed here. After some time, the archipelago became the property of the British colonialists, and in 1976 the Seychelles became an independent republic.
Tourists come to the Seychelles from all over the world to see with their own eyes the splendor of the untouched natural beauty of the islands, as well as to go scuba diving in the clear waters of the Indian Ocean and even go fishing
Each island of the Seychelles archipelago is unique in its own way. Giant turtles crawl one at a time, amazing colorful birds circle above the other, the coast of the third is replete with unique fish and coral arifs, etc. But on almost all islands, local endemics grow — Coco-de-mer coconut palms found only in the Seychelles
Coconuts plucked from the Coco-de-mer palm weigh an average of 20 kg and are considered the largest coconuts in the world. Among the local population, there is even a belief that it was the nut with Coco-de-mer that was the forbidden fruit that caused Adam and Eve to be expelled from the Garden of Eden) On one of the islands, not so long ago, the park “Vallee de Mai” was specially arranged , in which an extensive grove of Seychelles palms grows!
The climate in the Seychelles allows you to relax here all year round — the temperature ranges between 24 and 32 degrees
The hottest period for relaxing on the islands lasts from December to May — during these months the temperature is about 29 ° C, from June to November weak monsoons blow here, and the average temperature is 25 degrees on average.
The coast of the Seychelles is calm almost all year round, some excitement is observed only from October to March, when the northwest trade winds blow from the ocean, but from May to September it seems that the whole world is frozen in the calm waters of the Seychelles, and a drier and cooler climate allows not worry about overheating in the sun. In addition, these are still tropics and short-term showers often pass here, and this happens at any time of the year.
For lovers of diving, the months of April, May, September and October will be the most convenient, when the ocean is calmer and clearer, although if the excitement of the water does not bother you, it is better to come here in December-January, when the underwater fauna is represented in the greatest variety.
The Seychelles amaze anyone, even the most sophisticated tourist, with its unique beauty, saturation of colors, variety of terrestrial and underwater life, and the saying “It is better to see once than hear a hundred times” takes on a completely different meaning in this place — no photographs can reflect the true beauty Seychelles, you have to see it with your own eyes…
Transparent calm waters of the Indian Ocean, washing the pinkish sand of the Seychelles coasts, unique fauna, even climate and bright colors of the underwater world annually attract thousands of tourists, and almost every island is unique not only in its nature, but also in terms of recreational opportunities!
For lovers of luxurious private islands, the Seychelles are in great demand as an exclusive place for an exceptional holiday.
