5 Reasons to Add Seychelles to Your Bucket List - Top 5 Reasons Why Seychelles Should be in Everyone's Travel List

Tipped to be one of the world's finest beach holiday hubs, Seychelles is a travel destination with its own charms. Here are five reasons why it should be on your bucket list.


Beaches Galore

As the main reason why most travellers visit the country, the spectacular beaches in Seychelles are the envy of the world. Home to beaches that have been ranked among the top beaches in the world in travel magazines time and time again, the white powdery sands and turquoise waters are picture-postcard perfect, to say the least. Some of the top beaches in the Seychelles include Anse Source D'Argent located on La Digue Island while Praslin Island's Anse Lazio is equally popular. Mahe's Beau Vallon beach is known for its stunning sunsets while Grand Anse and Anse Royale are just as breathtaking. The most attractive aspect of Seychelles's beaches is that they are not overrun with tourist hotels and tourists and are in fact tranquil pieces of paradise unto themselves.


The Tourism Infrastructure

While there are a great many beach holiday destinations around the world, few boast the tourism infrastructure available in Seychelles. As a vacation hub that's revered by Hollywood celebrities, travellers can rest assured knowing that the landscapes and the amenities accessible to tourists in the country are top-notch. The general populace is not only fluent in English but the roads and lanes across the country are paved and ideal for cycling and walking. The beauty of local resorts also lends to the experience at venues such as Avani Barbarons Seychelles Resort and the many other resorts in Seychelles surpass all notions of luxury.


The Jungles and Mountain Ranges

As Seychelles is made up of non-volcanic islands, the tropical jungles and mountains of the country differ from those in Hawaii and nearby beach Meccas in a significant way. The mountains in Seychelles are massive granite hills and boulders covered in a variety of palm trees and other vegetation. Hiking enthusiasts will find Seychelles a dream come true as there are several locations offering panoramic views of the islands scattered across the Morne Seychellois National Park. The many coco de mer plants at the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve are another draw for nature lovers.


The Wildlife

As a part of the world that was uninhabited by human civilizations for most of its history, the wildlife heritage and biodiversity of the islands remains impressive. The Aldabra giant tortoise is one of the main ancient species occupying the islands and these mammoth creatures are located in the islands of Curieuse, and the Cousin Island. As one of the largest turtle species on the planet visitors can witness the majesty of these unique animals during a trip to the Maldives. Those who are based at the Avani Barbarons Seychelles Resort or any similar resorts in Seychelles can organize a tour of the islands through the hotels.


The Local Food

With fresh seafood readily available, the local cuisine in Seychelles is delicious, to say the least. Influenced by Creole cuisine, the many fish-based dishes in the local cannon include octopus curry and red snapper curry.
