4°19’ South and 55°42’ East
Located between 4° and 10° south of the Equator just outside the cyclone belt, the Seychelles is the world’s best kept holiday spot with plenty of sunshine all year round, world-renowned un-crowded beaches and 115 islands to explore. The islands fall into two distinct groups, the Inner and Outer islands, spread over 1.4 million km² of warm, azure ocean.
The inner islands of the Seychelles archipelago cluster around the main island of Mahé, home to the international airport and the capital, Victoria, and the other inner islands Praslin and La Digue. Together, these inner islands form the cultural and economic hub of the nation.
Seychelles is a living museum of natural history and a sanctuary for some of the rarest species of flora and fauna on earth. Nowhere else on earth will you find unique endemic specimens such as the fabulous Coco-de-Mer, the largest seed in the world, the jellyfish tree, with only eight surviving examples, the Seychelles’ paradise flycatcher and Seychelles warbler.
From the smallest frog to the heaviest land tortoise and the only flightless bird of the Indian Ocean, Seychelles nurtures an amazing array of endemic species within surrounds of exceptional natural beauty.
