Seychelles is an archipelago that is most popular for its pristine beaches, marine parks and the jungles along its coastlines.
When you go to Seychelles, you should begin your journey at the Bird Island which is home to vibrant bird species and a 200-year old tortoise.
After visiting this island, move to Denis Island where you can find corals and many different marine and avian species. If you go at the right time, you may even see turtles that are laying their eggs on the shore.
Next, you must visit Praslin, which has magnificent mountains and clear blue waters. If you want to find some peace and quiet, travel to La Digue and unwind at the bay. You can also go to Silhouette Island and have a look at the tortoises and terrapins, as well as the rich biodiversity of the island.
On the other hand, if you are more interested to visit colonial structures and modern buildings, the place to go to is the capital city of Victoria. Finally, you can go to the small Fregate Island where you will see a wide range of fauna and flora.
Seychelles is suitable for all types of travellers. If you want to go beach bumming, you can visit Anse Intendance which is a popular nesting spot for turtles and also try out different adventure sports. For nature enthusiasts, the ideal place to visit is the Morne Seychellois National Park which is one of the biggest national parks in the entire country. You can also take a trip to Vallée de Mai National Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that features a prehistoric forest with giant coco de mer fruit palm trees that are only found in Seychelles.
Because of its location, its local cuisine involves dishes with fish, shellfish and other seafoods as the main ingredients. Some of the traditional food that you should try include bourgeoisie grille, chatinirequin, bouillon brede, caribernique and bat curry. For dessert, some of the must-try foods include ladob and cassava pudding.
