Silhouette is One of the Seychelles Islands

Aug 17, 2007
Paradise on earth is the only way to describe this cluster of some one hundred and fifth teen Tropical Islands scattered in the Indian Ocean just four degrees south of the Equator. Uninhabited until recent times, the islands of the Seychelles are stunningly beautiful, and environmentally unspoiled.

Silhouette is one of the Seychelles Islands. It can be reached by a forty five minute speedboat ride or a spectacular fifteen minute helicopter flight from Mahe. There are no roads on Silhouette only two connecting the north and south parts of the island. These lead over the seven hundred and eight metre high mountain and along the unspoiled coast line paradise.

A resort that full fills great expectations. Pure, unspoiled nature. An island of unfathomed beauty. The essence of the Seychelles. Silhouette is an experience for guests with an urge for the spectacular.

Mount Dauban towers overhead, its peak hidden in mist, slopes covered in forest.
White sand beaches separate rainforest from sea. The highest summit is Mount Dauban, which is surrounded by a virgin rain forest full of botanical treasures such as the rare pitcher plant, orchids, rare hardwoods and incense tree.

The island Giant Tortoise sanctuary is home to some individuals that are over one hundred and twenty years old. The Nature Protection Trust of Seychelles has been engaged as consulting organization efforts to preserve and promote the prosperity of Silhouette Island biodiversity.

Silhouette Nature a marine national park. Silhouette is home to a huge diversity of indigenous fauna and flora. Rare species on the island include the incense tree and sheaf tailed bat.

Spend your days snorkelling, diving or fishing in the clear waters surrounding the island, play tennis or work out in the fitness centre, explore the rainforest or visit the islands Giant Tortoise Sanctuary.

Alternatively indulge in a treatment at the Spa or simply relax around the pool. A restaurant located on an island in the lagoon, and a Creole restaurant in the restored plantation house.

The climate is a perfect 24 to 30 from May to September, the warmest season is October to April when light North Westerly winds allow temperatures to rise to 32.

Sea temperatures are around the 25 to 29. The majority of rainfall is normally in December or January and is heavier on the inner islands with large mountains than on the flatter low lying coral islands, although light showers are possible all year round.

The main tourist islands known as the Inner Islands are based on a shallow granitic plateau, a relic from the pre historic super continent of Gondwanaland. The majority of the islands are mountainous with a few outlying coral islands at the edge of the plateau.

The main island of Mahe with the capital city of Victoria is home to most of the resident population followed by Praslin, and La Digue. These islands are north of the cyclone belt with a climate moderated by the trade winds and dominant mountains that promote excellent all year round diving conditions.
