Seychelles Endless White Sand Beaches

Aug 18, 2007
The Seychelles with their endless white sand beaches, clear warm blue seas and the charming locals. Apart from the idyllic beaches and charming hotels that conjure up a somewhat lazy way of enjoying the Seychelles Islands, the surrounding land and seas offer activities galore to tempt you away from your sunbed.

Golf, sailing, windsurfing, the possibilities are endless.

Big game fishing and bottom fishing can be enjoyed from all the Seychelles Islands but for the ultimate experience the following premium locations have been detailed.

The Seychelles developed their own traditions, language and culture. The islands became a Crown Colony in 1903. Internal self government was granted in 1975 and independence a year later. Despite several coup attempts, multi party democracy was restored in 1991 under pressure from the countrys main aid donors, particularly France and Britain.

A major attraction for birdwatchers. Millions of terns nest on the islands among them that most beautiful of seabirds, the fairy tern. Up to two million sooty terns nest on Bird Island, and on Aride can be found the worlds largest colonies of lesser nod dies, roseate terns and other tropical birds. It was only some 30 years ago that active conservation of endangered species began in the Seychelles. Since then, with the establishment of island sanctuaries and nature reserves, much has been done to make the Seychelles a paradise for birds and for those who love to watch them.

The economy of this isolated island paradise relies heavily on tourism. Fine beaches, turquoise seas and warm weather are among the main draws for visitors. As a result of their extraordinary, isolated history, the Seychelles are also rich in rare plants which flourish nowhere else on the planet. 81 species are unique survivors from the luxuriant tropical forests that covered the islands until humanities belated arrival two centuries ago. Outstanding amongst these is the coco de mer, native to Praslin, which grows in the Vallee de Mai. Its seed is the largest in nature, and gave rise to many legends when it was washed ashore on the coasts of Africa, India and Indonesia. Since the islands were unknown, the nuts were thought to have grown under the sea hence the name.

The islands lie outside the cyclone belt but receive monsoon rains from November to April with the northwest trade winds. This hot and humid season gives way to a period of cooler weather, though the temperature rarely falls below 23 and rougher seas when the trade winds blow from the southeast.
