Irresistible island escapes and some of the best beaches in the world combine with extraordinary natural beauty on a holiday to the Seychelles

With its dazzling white shorelines and hypnotic coral reefs, the Seychelles is a picture-perfect collection of tiny islands that are home to some of the most beautiful beaches and exclusive hotels in the world. From the rare coco de mer tree and its towering granite rocks to the giant tortoises, world-famous beaches and exotic jungle-clad interiors, this sun-drenched treasure in the Indian Ocean will leave you stunned at its outstanding natural beauty. About as close to paradise perfection as you can get, offshore this is an aquatic treasure trove of whale sharks, manta rays, turtles and schools of exotic reef fish. On land, there's a charming slow-motion island vibe, and the sheer diversity of endemic birdlife and flora and fauna is just extraordinary.

Made for exploration, relaxation and spectacular island-hopping adventures, holidays to the Seychelles can range from sunbathing for days on talcum-powder sands, hiking through World Heritage-listed nature reserves and even going Robinson Crusoe on your own desert island. Whether you’re dreaming of an exciting family adventure or a romantic honeymoon hideaway, on a Seychelles holiday you can take the time to explore as little or as much you like.
