Welcome to part of the Vanilla Islands. Made up of 115 islands scattered across the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles archipelago is one of those islands we love. Peaceful postcard landscapes: white sandy beaches, coconut palms, polished rocks typical of the Seychelles landscape.
There are many islands to visit, including La Digue, Mahé and Praslin. For something a little more dreamy and tranquil, some prefer to venture to Île de la Frégate, Île aux Cerfs or Île aux oiseaux.
Here, people are proud of their Creole culture, their “island” culture, which is also influenced by surrounding countries such as Africa and India. Friendly locals, and an environment that goes beyond the big resorts: marine life to explore during a diving session; an escapade in one of the many nature reserves, meeting giant tortoises…
An earthly paradise to discover from another angle!
