7 Reasons to Visit Seychelles -Top 7 Reasons Why Seychelles is a Superb Holiday Hub

As one of the best beach holiday hotspots in the world, there are many reasons to visit this pristine part of the world. Here are seven important reasons to visit Seychelles.


The Natural Attributes

It's difficult to ignore the staggering natural beauty of Seychelles and the country's towering mountains and lush forests are some of the most spectacular sights one will come across on a vacation anywhere in the globe. As a group of islands that are non-volcanic, the vegetation and the plant lift, as well as the topographical features of the country, differ greatly from similar island holiday havens the likes of Hawaii. The granite mountains are not the only aspect to write home about during a holiday in the isles as the country's largest island Mahe is home to the iconic Morne Seychellois National Park where the 3000 foot tall highest mountain in the Seychelles of the same name is also found.


The Stunning Beaches

As the most touted and advertised element of a Seychelles vacation, the island nation's stunning beaches are no less than awe-inspiring at first glance. From popular beach heavens the likes of Praslin Island's Anse Lazio and La Digue's Grand Anse, the choices are seemingly endless when it comes to breathtaking beaches with golden sands and beautiful shorelines. Home to AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa and countless other similar Seychelles beach resort hubs, the beach areas of the country are also ideal for water sports activities and snorkelling.


Economical Luxury

As one of the most affordable beach holiday destinations in the region, Seychelles is well-known for providing five-star vacation experiences for a fraction of the cost. Big price tags are just not a part of the Seychelles experience and visitors can enjoy the luxurious amenities and activities enjoyed by wealthy vacationers for less when holidaying in this part of the world. Guest houses and bed and breakfasts are also commonplace on the islands now, making access to the beach and hotel rates more feasible to travellers on a budget.


The Food

The local cuisine is another reason to select Seychelles for your honeymoon or family getaway. With many dishes steeped in the Creole culinary tradition, the ready availability of fresh seafood means the islands are a dream destination for seafood fanatics. Red Snapper curries and octopus dishes are firm favourites all visitors can sample during a Seychelles vacation.


The Wildlife

As the home of the Aldabra Giant Tortoise, the wildlife populace and its diversity is another reason to spend a week or two in this paradise nation. As one of the largest tortoise species in the world, take a tour of the Cousin Islands and Praslin to see these gentle but large tortoises roaming out in the open. Tortoise selfies are also a popular pastime of frequent visitors to the islands due to regular spotting of the slow-moving creatures on the beach.


Tourism Setup

Seychelles not only boasts fantastic infrastructure in terms of tourism but also earns a large percentage of its GDP from the industry so visitors can rest assured that every conceivable convenience is available for their comfort. From excellent roadways to English speaking guides and easy transport links, travelling in Seychelles is a hassle-free affair.


It's on Everyone's Bucket List

Having witnessed the frequency with which holiday photos from Seychelles are posted on social media, it is safe to consider visiting the country purely for the bragging rights of vacationing in the paradise isles.
