Isolated islands, turquoise beaches, glistening white sand, lush vegetation, dense tropical jungles, giant turtles, exclusive resorts - all these are the Seychelles.

Seychelles makes you feel like you are on another planet. Exploring the isolated islands, of which there are really many, allows you to slow down the pace of life and probably completely forget that time exists. In the hills, the greenery of the island welcomes jungle lovers, where the fruits of the Seychelles palm can reach a weight of about 20kg and where giant turtles are found in large numbers. Diving and the phenomenal sea world attract all water lovers.

The most famous islands are Mahe, Praslin and La Digue, and each is special in its own way. What they have in common is an amazing world of flora and fauna that you will discover in any corner you peek. It is no exaggeration to say that you will find a new place to enjoy this destination every day, and one of them is the most spectacular and most photographed beach Anse Source D'Argent. It is located on the island of La Digue and is a trademark of the country, and National Geography has even declared it the most beautiful beach in the world.

Do not miss a visit to the Island of Birds, where you will experience absolute peace and relaxation, because here the only noise is created by the chirping of rare species that live on this island. Visit the Vallee de Mai, a nature reserve and UNESCO World Heritage Site dominated by the Seychelles palm trees with the largest seeds in the world.

The most famous homemade dish is octopus curry, and all fish and seafood dishes, which dominate Seychelles cuisine, are of excellent quality and freshness. The sweets are mostly made of fruit and coconut, exotic and refreshing.

There is a slight seasonality in the Seychelles, and the climate is tropical. Temperatures vary from 24 to 30 degrees, and the most pleasant period is from May to November, when the southeast winds blow. However, tourist visits are possible throughout the year, since it generally never rains all day.

Let the Seychelles be on the list of places you must visit at least once in your life, because nowhere else in the world will you find so enchanting nature, turquoise ocean, coral reefs, a large number of deserted beaches, parrots, turtles, and most importantly, peace and quiet .
