The Seychelles have long been a favourite destination of honeymooners and wealthy holidaymakers who are drawn to its white sandy beaches, luxurious resorts and clear blue waters, however the Seychelles are also a great destination to take the children. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider spending your next family holiday in the Seychelles.
The sand is clean and powdery-soft, and provides perfect conditions for playing on the beach. Many of the Seychelles' bays have an offshore reef that provides protection from the open ocean, as well as ensuring shallow water depth for children. Especially at low tide, the water level is sometimes so low that adults cannot swim, but children can certainly paddle around in the shallows!
Since 2018, British Airways has operated a direct service from London Heathrow to the Seychelles. The airline operates two flights per week from March to October using its newest fleet of aircraft, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner.
Dangerous animals and plants are absent from the islands, as are weather catastrophes, because the Seychelles lie outside the hurricane zone, sparing them from bad storms. The Indian Ocean paradise is also one of the few countries in the tropics where there is no risk of malaria or yellow fever making it an ideal destination for families.
Another reason for taking your family to the Seychelles for a holiday is that there is is only a 3-hour time difference from the UK for much of the year - meaning less disruption to sleep patterns and less irritable children!
Many hotels in the Seychelles provide Children's Clubs with daily activity programmes that focus greatly on the local fauna and flora as well as the local way of life. From feeding Giant Tortoises to treasure hunts and painting shells, there is much fun and interaction to be had. Two resorts that we think are particularly good for families are the Constance Ephelia Resort and the Four Seasons Resort Seychelles. Both resorts are located on the main island of Mahe and both have multiple room villas and great children's facilities.
