Having just returned from a trip to the Seychelles I was blown away by the sheer beauty of the island.  The turquoise clear waters and white sandy beaches are picture perfect.  I learnt that the white sand is a by-product from the parrot fish eating coral.

Whilst in the Seychelles I visited some of the smaller islands surrounding Mahe.  Praslin holds the famous Anse Lazio beach, often claimed to be one the most beautiful beaches in the world.    There are a whole host of luxurious accommodations on Praslin catering for all tastes.  La Digue is smaller still with limited vehicles on the island.  The beaches here are framed by granite boulders and Anse Source D’Argent is well worth a visit.  La Digue can be visited as a day trip or there are a handful of accommodation options available for longer stays on the island.

Other highlights of the trip included visiting the self-sustainable tropical hideaway of Denis Island – accessible only by light aircraft from the main island of Mahe.  The organic farm on the island provided an interesting insight behind the scenes and meeting some of the resident giant tortoises was a welcome surprise.   Guests can snorkel right off the beach in the house reef and then finish the day with sundowners by the beach.  Denis Island was one of my favourite places to stay in the Seychelles.

The Seychelles is a fantastic destination for couples and families alike.  Snorkelling, diving and other water sports are widely available.  There is also an abundance of birdlife and national parks for nature lovers out there.  I would recommend the country to anyone and can’t wait for the chance to go back.
