The granitic islands of the Seychelles archipelago are the oldest islands on earth, evolving their own fascinating fauna and flora over the millions of years since their birth. The isolated nature of the Seychelles has given rise to many unique species, including the coco-de-mer palm and specific varieties of orchid, the giant tortoise, gecko, chameleon and 'flying fox' (fruitbat).
This Indian Ocean Atlantis promises adventure and breathtaking natural beauty in pristine surroundings that are still untouched by man. Some of the beaches are framed by ancient granite boulders and on offer are powder-soft sands with sublime opportunities for swimming and snorkelling in turquoise waters. Other activities include, horse-riding, golf, guided nature tours, island-hopping, a choice of water sports and not forgetting the mellow Seychelles nightlife. The Seychellois pursue a relaxed attitude to life that appeals to visitors in search of a stress-free holiday amidst stunning scenery.
