The Seychelles Islands, being only a 4-hour flight away from Johannesburg, definitely has to be on any island holiday bucket list! The main island of Mahe boasts the smallest Capital City of the world being Victoria. The streets are clean and bustling with happy and friendly people. The little market is a gem in the city centre for all your shopping needs, the city even boasts a 'little Big Ben' clock tower. Beau Vallon Bay is one of the main beaches on the island, offering soft, white powdery sand and beautiful sunrises. Take a stroll along the promenade and immerse yourself in one of the local bars or restaurants. I would highly recommend an island-hopping holiday to enjoy the many islands. A short flight of 15 minutes or ferry trip of just under an hour will take you across to the second biggest island of Praslin where the beaches are even more amazing with natural boulders, the softest sand and turquoise waters. Located on Praslin is also the Natural World Heritage site of Vallee De Mai where you can learn all about the Coco de Mer Palm Tree, some of them are over 25 meters high, which is truly spectacular! Amongst all the beautiful palms you might be fortunate enough to spot the famous Seychelles Black Parrot. Other islands are also easily accessible by ferry. The Seychelles offers a range of hotel accommodation from 3 Star to 5 Star, boutique to resort styles and of course you can cruise around the islands as well, either by Catamaran or a small cruise liner. There are numerous water activities as well as land activities that you can include in any trip, or just sit back, relax with a cocktail and enjoy the splendor of the Seychelles. There is so much to offer!
