Catamaran sailing in the Seychelles

Things to do in the Seychelles

With 115 idyllic islands all offering their own version of a tropical paradise, you may not want to do much more than relax on the sand during your trip to the Seychelles. However, it's well worth exploring further as this beautiful archipelago offers plenty of other things to do such as island hopping to explore remote beaches, village visits to learn about local culture or jungle walks.

The islands are surrounded by vibrant coral reefs, and swimming, snorkeling and diving in the warm, clear waters are some of the most memorable experiences for any visitor, with frequent sightings of boxfish, angelfish, Moorish idols and even turtles.
