Explore The Land Of Perpetual Summer – The Seychelles

Seychelles Is The Land Of Perpetual Summer

Seychelles is an archipelago comprising 115 islands in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. As a great travel destination during any season due to its warm, tropical climate all year long, Seychelles has earned the nickname, ‘the land of perpetual summer’. Formed 150 million years ago, Seychelles hosts two UNESCO World Heritage sites: the legendary Vallée de Mai where the fabulous Coco-de-mer grows on towering palms and Aldabra, the planet’s largest raised coral atoll.

A Visit To Praslin Island In Seychelles


The most popular things to do in Seychelles include boat trips around the island, hiking the mountain trails, beach hopping on the pristine beaches, rock climbing, photographing the unique flora and fauna, and relishing the delicious Créole cuisine.

Eating in Seychelles is also a real treat. Given its invaluable accessibility to the ocean, fish and seafood are the stars of local cuisine. Many dishes include fish that is steamed (sometimes in banana leaves), baked, salted, or smoked. Coconut, mango, and breadfruit can be found everywhere, while traditional Creole food is also a mainstay in local restaurants.
