The Seychelles is a breathtaking archipelago of 115 islands set in the Indian Ocean, with pristine white sandy beaches, colourful reefs, magical rainforests and some of the world’s most important nature reserves. Brightsun Travel can organise a range of luxury holidays to Seychelles, to one of its incredible resorts, designed to help visitors make the most of everything this island paradise has to offer. And the Seychelles has a lot to offer. It has been appropriately nicknamed ‘The Galapagos of the Indian Ocean’ owing to its amazing diversity and largely unspoilt marine and forest habitats. The Seychelles is a sanctuary for sea turtles, birds and endemic trees and plants. The Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve on the island of Praslin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, with preserved palm forests almost in their original state, providing sanctuary for rare native birds. There are many walking trails around the reserve and private guided tours to help visitors appreciate the diverse flora and fauna it contains. In all the Seychelles islands, pristine forests and incredible wildlife is never far away. Even the Seychelles’ main island of Mahe has 20% of its land protected with National Park status, with beautiful mangrove forests and the Seychelles’ highest peak. A holiday to this glorious island doesn’t need to break the bank – Brightsun Travel has many cheap holidays to Seychelles to suit a range of budgets.
Diving in the waters off one of the many islands in the Seychelles is one of its main attractions, owing to its colourful and healthy reefs and coral gardens. There are dive sites for all levels in the Seychelles, as well as easy snorkelling sites to enjoy in between days spent on the island’s many beautiful and picture perfect beaches. The Seychelles is known the world over for its spectacular beaches, such as the famous Anse Source d’Argent, which is one of the most photographed beaches in the world, as well as Beau Vallon Beach on the main island of Mahé, and Anse Lazio which is bordered by indigenous ‘takamaka’ trees. As well as its beaches, the Seychelles’ capital of Victoria offers impressive churches, bustling markets, beautiful botanical gardens and plenty of museums.
