Lay of the Land

The Seychelles are a group of more than one hundred islands in the Indian Ocean, off the coast of East Africa. It’s a pristine and beautiful destination, with a rich culture of its own. Only 40 of the 155 islands are inhabited. The main ones are Mahé, where international flights arrive, Praslin (home of the Raffles Resort), Silhouette Island and La Digue.

More than 90 percent of the population are Seychellois, and the locals, who are trilingual in French, English and Creole, are lovely hosts. They take great pride in their country and actively work to preserve sustainable tourism, as well as to protect the indigenous wildlife and the local flora and fauna.

When to Go

The Seychelles have pretty great weather year-round. The best diving is from September through November and March through May.

Getting There

You can connect through several European capitals, including Paris (10-hour flight to the Seychelles). Emirates Airlines flies from Dubai (4.5 hours) and Tanzania’s Dar es Salaam (5.5 hours). South African Air flies from Johannesburg (5 hours). A visa is not required for U.S. citizens visiting for less than 30 days with a valid passport.
