Click for Seychelles, Seychelles Forecast




Suspended in the Indian Ocean, literally thousands of miles from anywhere, the Seychelles is a group of about 115 islands which lie about 1000 miles (1600km) off the coast of east Africa. The three central islands are Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. These islands are carved out of granite, while the outlying islands are coral atolls. Aside from palm-fringed beaches and superb snorkeling and diving, there's also plenty of forest wilderness with an abundance of wildlife.


The Seychelles offer the largest coral atolls in the world. The granite islands which make up the main group Mahe, Praslin, La Digue, Aride, Silhouette and Fregate. With over 900 species of fish, 100 types of shells and 50 varieties of coral the Seychelles are a divers paradise, with above average chance of seeing large pelagics such as turtles, manta rays, marlin, and whale sharks. With such an abundance of fish life and coral, snorkeling is available in most of the anchorages.

Diving, particularly around the outlying islands is popular and diving is offered both from dive centers on the islands or from a hand full of liveaboards with good facilities.

The Seychelles has four marine national parks, and more than 150 species of tropical reef fish have been identified. Dolphin and porpoise are common between the islands.
