Few island destinations are more appealing than the Seychelles. Their stunning sandy beaches, deep blue sea and diverse flora and fauna make the Indian Ocean archipelago a strong contender for a once in a lifetime holiday, says Sebastian Schmitz.
The Seychelles are among the most pristine and beautiful regions of the world. Flying to the islands and staying there is expensive because of their remoteness – which is probably a positive, ensuring the country remains largely unspoiled by mass tourism. But the number of visitors is increasing every year, and for many the point of entry will be Seychelles International Airport (SEZ), often referred to as Mahé Airport, which serves the largest island in the archipelago.
