The Seychelles are located off the coast of East Africa, to the northeast of Madagascar and is comprised of over 100 (mostly uninhabited) islands. The majestic Granite-backed hills rise out of the ocean, covered in thick, tropical forest surrounded by talcum-powdered beaches and cerulean waters. In short it is truly is the very embodiment of an island paradise.
A tour through Mahé is a good start, while those seeking nothing but sun and sand might hop on a ferry to Praslin to amble along one of the world’s top 10 beaches. Nothing says ‘worldly escape’ more than the island that time forgot, La Digue, with less than 2,000 inhabitants and only a handful of road vehicles. When pure luxury is an absolute must, hop into a helicopter and make your way to any one of the most exclusive resorts, each found on their own private island. Flitestar offers direct private flight services from most European cities.
