About Seychelles

Seychelles consists of 115 coral and granite islands scattered in the middle of the Indian Ocean, between The Equator and Comoro Islands.

Seychelles Tourism

Tourism is vital to the economy of the Seychelles; bringing in three quarters of the foreign exchange and making up more than half of the gross domestic product.

Although you will enjoy the cool juices of locally grown tropical fruits, the rice with your fish has to be imported.

Arab traders were probably the earliest visitors to the islands; long before the Portuguese sailed by in 1502.

France claimed the uninhabited islands some two hundred and fifty years later, and moved in with their slaves in the late 1700's.

The expanding power of Great Britain annexed the Seychelles in 1814; controlling them from Mauritius for most of the century.

Independence was achieved on June 29th, 1976.

Victoria, the capital of Seychelles, is on Mahe Island.

The airport was completed in 1971, on reclaimed land south-east of the capital. Be sure to have a window seat when you come in to land.

Seychelles Travel

Seychelles offers an holiday experience as unique as it is varied, drawing on the amazing diversity of 115 pristine islands to ensure that every visitor goes back with his or her very personal memories.

Seychelles Island Hopping

What sets Seychelles apart from so many other holiday destinations is its wide variety of islands; each one with its own particular geography, character and history.

Seychelles Transportation

With relatively short travelling times between the islands and/or places of interest, the regular network of air and sea transportation operating out of the principal island, Mahe, makes moving around in Seychelles easy and hassle-free.

Seychelles Ministry of Tourism:
The Tourism Department's website was launched in 2017, declared as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development by the United Nations.
