Additional Information About Seychelles Holidays
The Seychelles 115 islands fall under two distinct groups. The tall granite, Inner Islands cluster mainly within the relatively shallow Seychelles' plateau.
These Outer Islands are divided into five groups: the Amirantes group lying 230km distant from Mahé, the Southern Coral Group, Alphonse Group, Farquhar Group and finally the Aldabra Group, some 1150km from Mahé.
In Seychelles there are 43 Inner Islands in all 41 granitic and 2 coralline and a total of 72 coralline Outer Islands.
The Seychelles islands are the only mid ocean island group in the world with a granite rock formation. And that Aldabra, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site is the largest coral atoll in the world. Some will of course not understand what you are talking about but the point will be clear that you have traveled to a place of distinction.
As the oldest islands on earth, Seychelles travel offers an exotic blend of un spoilt beauty and modern luxury. White beaches fringed with palm trees, secluded coves and superb Seychelles accommodation greet all those who land on these tropical island shores. A long tradition of providing excellent service in sublime settings ensures that your hotel or resort will add to a wonderful Indian Ocean experience.
The islands are a good place to get married and to enjoy the tropical honeymoon of your life. Few other destinations can beat the combination of beauty and romance.
The Seychelles is a year round destination. In this tropical haven the temperature seldom drops below 24°C or rises above 32°C. All but the remotest southern islands lie comfortably outside the cyclone belt making Seychelles’ a year round destination for sun worshippers and beach lovers.But if you must undertake a specific activity, then you need to pick the most suitable season. Windsurfing and sailing are best at the start and end of the trade winds - May and October. Diving enthusiasts should go for dates between March and May or September to November, although conditions are excellent year round.
Those keen on the birdlife should note that April marks the beginning of the breeding season. Bird Island, in particular is overrun by sea birds between May and September. Due to drier conditions, the period May to September has best conditions for hiking and walking.
