One hundred and fifteen land masses in the middle of the Indian Ocean make up the Seychelles archipelago. The earliest islands are located below the equator, while the most remote are close to the coast of Madagascar. Each island has its own identity and charm.

Almost all the islands of the Seychelles have idyllic bays and palm-fringed beaches, surrounded by rocks polished in various shades of granite that look like they were carved for a film set.

Nearly 50% of the Seychelles' territory is protected as a nature reserve, giving you the chance to see turtles, a myriad of colourful fish and birds unafraid of man's presence. Each island is worth a visit.
