Heavenly scenery

There are more than a handful of islands to choose from. Curieuse, Cousin, Anze Lazio and La Digue islands are some of the most impressive, boasting pristine, sandy white beaches and azure, crystal clear waters. Anse Source D’Argent is perhaps the most photographed beach of all. Dramatic granite rock formations that rise from the ground like boulders, while others are covered in the local flora, resembling rainforests.

The underwater world of Seychelles is brimming in coralline seabeds that harbour a wide range of spectacular creatures. From strangely gorgeous tropical fish to marine mammals such as the peculiar manatees and dugongs, as well as dolphins, porpoises and whale species. As far as the endemic flora of the Seychelles is concerned, the most unique of all is the Coco de Mer seed that can weigh up to 30 kg! Mangrove forests are quite prominent here too, a coastal vegetation of sorts that grows on the banks.
