Travel to


Seychelles is located in the Indian Ocean off the East Coast of Africa. The capital island, Mahé, is situated approximately 1600km from the African Coast. Seychelles is out of the cyclone belt and enjoys a stable weather system all year round.

The Seychelles Archipelago is made up of the inner granitic islands and the outer coralline islands and atolls. All together 115 islands, strung like pearls in the warm, clear waters of the Indian Ocean collectively make up this paradise island getaway. The Islands are broadly categorised as the ‘inner islands’ – those centralised around the main island of Mahé – and the ‘outer islands,’ which are located beyond the Mahé Plateau and much further away.

Where to go



Mahé, the largest and most populated island, is the centre of commerce in Seychelles, and is home to the capital of Victoria, the international airport, many large hotels and resorts, a diverse selection of small hotels, guest houses and bed and breakfast establishments.

La Digue
