A trip to the Seychelles is the stuff of vacation dreams, where white-sand beaches, turquoise waters and spectacular lodgings make for an incredible tropical paradise you may not initially associate with Africa. There is a slew of Seychelles destinations to add to your bucket list, as this archipelago is made up of 115 islands, although many of these are uninhabited.
With so many wonderful places to visit in the Seychelles, where do you go? Most visitors choose to stay on Mahé or Praslin, but with so much to see we suggest a bit of island hopping. Visit small-enough-to-cycle-around La Digue, treat yourself to a few indulgent days on the super-luxurious private islands, or fly to the remote Outer Islands - they are where to go in the Seychelles for the most exciting scuba diving.
Diving is excellent all year round but if you dream of crystal-clear conditions and visibility up to a staggering 30 metres, the best time to visit the Seychelles is in the months of April to May and October to November.
