Seychelles Holiday Packages

Said by locals, to be a thousand miles from anywhere.

A wonderful description of these tiny islands, just over one hundred of them and spread across 455 square kilometres of the Indian Ocean, as they are indeed a thousand miles from the African mainland, with the Indian sub-continent twice the distance in the other direction. So they are ideally positioned for doing nothing except relaxing in the sun or playing on or in the sea from some of the most unspoiled, pristine beaches in the world. They are also a nature lover’s dream come true – with dolphins, giant and ancient turtles, giant fruit bats (one of the noisiest eaters on the planet) and birds, many of which you can see nowhere else in the world – including the last flightless bird in the Indian Ocean, the white-throated rail, a younger version of the dodo.
