Each of the 115 islands that make up the Seychelles archipelago has its own distinct character. While some can be explored by bicycle, others lend themselves to a self-drive holiday. One may be famous for its world-class dive sites, another for its wildlife or its seafood. This local knowledge, gathered by our specialists, has helped us devise a range of itinerary ideas that take you beyond the beach and can act as a starting point as you begin to plan your tailor-made trip.
