Seychelles An Amazing Holiday Destination
Seychelles is a popular holiday destination that is found off the east coast of Africa. It is renowned for its powder-white beaches and turquoise waters. There are, however, other perks to living in a 115-island archipelago in the western Indian Ocean. The environment is so green, so colorful, that when you travel to the northern hemisphere you wonder if the trees need some green paint added to their leaves. Remember green is also one of the most relaxing colors. It can help you restore your energy. You can spend your weekends and downtime on the beach, some of the most beautiful ones in the world, and you don’t even have to spend hours in the car to get there. Seychelles should definitely be on your bucket list!
Below are some of the main Islands in Seychelles:
Mahé is 28 km long and the largest of the 115 Seychelles islands. With almost 72,000 inhabitants, it’s home to roughly 90 percent of the total population of the Seychelles.
Mahé is also the location of the city of Victoria, the smallest capital city in the world. The island is suitable for all who desire a variety of entertainment options due to Mahe’s very animated nature as well as having the largest selection of accommodations among the islands. It’s a good idea to make Mahé the last stop of your island-hopping journey.
It’s the second-largest island. Often called the “Garden of Eden”, the island contains many of the most beautiful beaches on the Seychelles. Due to the small size of Praslin and the easy to use bus network, there’s no need to shell out money for a rental car.
It is the smallest and the one with the slowest and most relaxing pace of the three main islands of the Seychelles. If you’re searching for silence or nature tours, then search no further than La Digue. There are no busses, only a few cars (which are taxis) and virtually no street lights. The only thing you need is a bike and which can be rented at your accommodation or at the port.
