The Seychelles


Reasons to Visit the Seychelles

  • Beaches

    The Seychelles are world famous for their beaches and in rightly so. They really are as picture postcard beautiful as you imagine. The islands of Seychelles are fringed with perfect white sands ideal for beach lovers.

  • Coastal Scenery

    Taking a sailing trip is an excellent way to see more of the Seychelles’ beautiful island coastline. Swimming in secluded coves and exploring Robinson Crusoe-style desert islands is the stuff of daydreams.

  • Diving & Snorkelling

    Snorkelling and diving in the Seychelles are fantastic ways to see the diverse coral reefs and marine life. The best time to snorkel with whale sharks is in August and between October and January.

  • Luxury hotels

    There is a wide range of accommodation on the Seychelles including deluxe five-star hotels, Creole guesthouses, boutique hotels, plantation houses and exclusive private island hideaways (these have only one exclusive lodge). Accommodation locations range from the larger islands of Praslin and Mahé to sleepy La Digue and far flung Desroches.

  • Marine Wildlife

    The coral reefs and drop-offs are host to an array of marine life from the big game fish marlin, sailfish and tuna to the colourful reef fish which teem in schools around the coral.

  • Migratory birds

    The Seychelles is home to well over 200 species of birds that vary from residents that stay all year around, to migrants who pass through with the seasons. Bird Island, as the name suggests, is alone home to around 800,000 pairs of sooty terns.

  • Relaxation

    Lying back with a cocktail and occasionally dipping into the turquoise Indian Ocean to cool off is a wonderfully relaxing way to spend a day, or even a few!

  • Turtles

    If you visit from Oct-Jan you may be lucky enough to be joined by the Hawksbill turtles. Now critically endangered, they come ashore to dig their nests in the sand and then lay their eggs. A couple of months later (Dec-Mar)the hatchlings scuttle back into the sea during the night. The rare Green Turtle can be seen from June to September.

It sits within a cluster of small islands, including Round, Cachee, Long and Moyenne.

All the islands are privately owned and very sleepy and relaxed. Cerf Island has two tiny hotels on and a few private houses while the other islands just clusters of private houses.

Beaches of Cerf Island

Cerf Island has lots of white sandy beaches around the island. In the early morning a walk along the beaches is beautiful. There are pretty Creole houses backing on to the beach, the sand is soft and white and sea like glass. Situated in the marine park the coral reefs are protected and offer some superb snorkelling opportunities.

The island interior is covered in lush vegetation and rises to the highest point of 108m. Ghost crabs scuttle over the white sand and barred doves chatter in the takamaka trees.

It's a lovely little island, ideal for anything from a two night to week's stay.
