The islands of the Seychelles really are as beautiful as they appear in the ads, a spectacular setting for an island holiday. The archipelago is as ideal for families as it is for those in search of romantic seclusion. Beyond the cyclone belt and malaria-free, the archipelago is the ideal place to unwind.
The islands possess some of the world's rarest flora and fauna and half of its landmass is protected in reserves and World Heritage Sites. With spectacular scenery above and below the warm tropical waters, scuba diving, superb sailing, world-class fishing and wonderful walking, these remote islands offer a rich diversity of experience.
Birding in the Seychelles

Some of the endemics, such as the Seychelles Scops owl with its extraordinary call, the beautiful Seychelles Paradise flycatcher and the Seychelles Magpie robin, are among the world’s rarest birds.
