There are wonderful reasons why its islands are the stuff of travel dreams, and what better way to experience these oceanic havens than by yacht, carefully circumnavigating each island and exploring every pristine bay and reef.
You have to make the most of the beaches and scuba sites that surround the 155 islands that make up the Seychelles. Shark Bank and Trompeuse Rocks are highlyrated and depending on the time of year visibility can be up to 30 metres. On land, there are a few options to explore. Unlike the Maldives (high point 3 metres,) Seychelles mountains can soar to 3,000ft and you will find numerous trails for hiking, climbing and cycling but snorkelling in to the sensational beaches is probably the best activity.
There are underwater restaurants and three of the finest resorts that have both spa and dining experiences that are sublime in both style and cuisine. Cheval Blanc on Rhandheli Island, Maalifushi Coco on Thaa Atoll and Soneva Fushi on Kunfunadhoo Island.
