When it comes to holidays, we all have our favourite destinations and places we would like to visit but what is one of the best places to unwind? We have picked the Seychelles Islands for a 'leave all your worries behind holiday'. This is the perfect place to get lost in a sweet doing nothing, surrounded by spectacular nature.The Seychelles consist of more than 116 islands in the Indian Ocean, an archipelago lying 932 miles east of Kenya. The majority of the islands are uninhabited and nature reserves. With many island-hopping boat trips available, you can feel like a Robinson Crusoe cast away on a lonely beach! The capital, Victoria, is on Mahã, the main island of the archipelago. Victoria is serviced by Seychelles International Airport, with frequent flights from London. Other archipelago islands, such as Praslin Island, Bird Island, and Denis Island are linked by regular flights from Seychelles International Airport as well. Islands with no air connection are reachable by boats and ferries.
With a hot and humid climate, the best months to visit are the coolest ones, such as July and August, when the average low temperature ranges around 24 °C. The hottest months are March and April, with temperature rising to 31 °C. Due to its close location to the equator, the rainfall is frequent, but it usually only lasts around one hour.AccommodationHolidays on the Seychelles do not need to be expensive. Apart from luxury hotels and private island resorts, there are many budget accommodation options available. There are also eco-friendly cottages and villas for rent on different islands.Things to doThe Seychelles are known for their idyllic white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters. With numerous outdoor activities available on the archipelago, you will forget about everyday grind in no time. You can opt for relaxing on a beach and swimming, while those who prefer active holidays will get a headache from all the choices: sailing, snorkelling, fishing, island-hopping, bird watching or hiking, just to name a few. It is worth visiting the picturesque beach of Anse Source d'Argent on La Digue, which is the third largest island of the archipelago, and Cousin Island Special Reserve.
