Summer Travel Destinations | Seychelles

With the official start to summer on 21st June, many people are turning their thoughts to summer holiday destinations and travel planning. If you need some travel inspiration for this summer, we’ve been revealing some superb holiday destinations over the last few weeks.

Situated within the crystal clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean are the islands of the Seychelles. Made up of 115 islands, the Seychelles is a place home to spectacular beaches, dazzling coral reefs, lush rainforests, mountainous areas and many rare species of plants and animals.

Nature all around

The Seychelles have preserved the land and waters around them and as a result rare plants and animals flourish here. On a visit to the islands try to spot a Black Paradise Flycatcher, one of the rarest birds on earth.

The Seychelles is one of very few places where Hawksbill Turtles come ashore during the day to lay their eggs. Visitors can be taught how to recognise a nesting turtle and are invited to witness – but never interfere with – the tiny turtles as they hatch and make their way to the waters of the ocean. A truly magical and unforgettable experience.

Fregate Island Private is a luxurious and opulent resort that provides access to some of the rarest flora and fauna. There are 16 villas in the resort and the rest of the island remains wild. This is a great place to get in touch with nature whilst still enjoying a little bit of luxury.

Beautiful beaches

The Seychelles are home to some of the very best and most beautiful beaches in the world. There are stunning, unspoiled beaches seemingly at every turn and on every island. Some of the best beaches include Anse Intendance, Anse Lazio, Anse Georgette, Anse Source D’Argent, Anse Severe and Anse Major.

Island hopping

To really experience the best of the Seychelles be sure to visit more than one of its 115 islands. The islands are in close proximity to each other, making island hopping by boat or helicopter very easy and accessible.
