Top 3 travel tips
A vacation rental on the beach is ideal for discovering the unique marine world of the Seychelles. Almost everywhere, fine, white, gently sloping sandy beaches invite you to be discovered by young and old alike. Among the most famous beaches is the beach of Anse Source d'Argent on the island of La Digue, which is known from the commercials for Rafaello and Bacardi. The Anse Lazio on the island of Praslin is also one of the most beautiful beaches. Divers can admire the beautiful coral reefs in the water. In the interior, tropical and extremely species-rich rainforests are waiting to be explored by you.2. Numerous nature reserves in the Seychelles
Around a quarter of the island's land area is forested, which is why seven national parks, four special reserves and six other protected areas are available for you to explore. In all the nature reserves live about 4000 different animal species. In addition, the region has a rich flora of about 850 plant species. Especially noteworthy is the Vallée de Mai National Park on the island of Praslin, which has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.3. A stroll through the capital city
The cityscape of the capital Victoria on the island of Mahé is reminiscent of the British colonial era of the beginning of the 20th century. The large clock tower, for example, is modelled on Little Ben in London. The stately courthouse in the city centre is also well worth a visit.
