Travel Guide: Five places to visit in Seychelles, the tropical paradise
Here are five must-visit places in the island country.
According to Seychelles.org,”if you are looking for a relaxed island vibe, with beautiful beaches and just a touch of local life, La Digue fits the bill perfectly, With no airport, and just a handful of road vehicles, this is an extremely laid back place, with some of the most iconic beaches in the Seychelles”.
Visitors to Curieuse Island will get to see unique attractions like the Coco de Mer, mangrove forests, Aldabra tortoises, takamaka trees, hawksbill and green sea turtle breeding ground, and also the Seychelles black parrot.
Beau Vallon is a popular beach in the Seychelles, by virtue of its beautiful atmosphere, great facilities, breathtaking sandy surface, and proximity to decent hotels.
According to a review on Trip Advisor, “It’s a gorgeous wide bay with calm, gentle waters that is perfect for children. The sunsets here are out of this world, and the glassy-smooth water reflects the light beautifully.
“It’s also a great place to be if you fancy taking a day trip to snorkel in the Sainte Anne Marine National park.”
For nature and bird lovers, Aride Island is definitely a place to visit if you are in Seychelles.
It is a 15 kilometres journey by boat from the Cote d’Or beach in Praslin, and even the trip down there is a delight on its own.
Aride hosts an impressive seabird population, with more breeding species than any other island in Seychelles.
Eighteen species of rare native birds breed on Aride.
Praslin Museum is home to a zoo, traditional huts, artifacts, and a restaurant.
The museum has its own vanilla, patchouli, and citronelle planation, as well as a substantial collection of medicinal plants.
Visitors can take a stroll through the bilimbi grove, play with tortoises, see pigeons and Seychelles black parrots.
