Information about Seychelles

Seychelles lies in the western part of the Indian Ocean, north of Madagascar and 1,593 km east of Mombasa, Kenya. It is between 4 and 5 degrees south of the equator at a longitude between 55 and 56 degrees east.

A hundred islands and islets make up the Seychelles, yet the total land area is a mere 454 sq km. The population numbers nearly 70,000 Seychellois, of French, English, Indian, Chinese and African origin. Among the 115 islands of the Seychelles you will find the luxuriant, tropical paradise that appears in countless advertisements and glossy travel brochures. But however seductive the images, they simply can’t compete with the real-life dazzling beaches and crystal-clear waters.

Most Seychellois speak Creole, a French patois. Nine out of ten live on Mahé, the largest island, 27 km long and 8 km  wide, with Victoria as the capital city. Most of the hotels are on this island, but even so it's far from crowded since the coastline boasts 68 beaches and coves. There's a good international airport on Mahé and an excellent deep-water harbour. The Morne Mountains form a backdrop to the town, a region of threading streams, ferns and moss tempered by smooth boulders.

Each is a drop of green, punctured by grey granite outcrops and rimmed in white sand. The trade winds are soft through the coconut fronds, the frangipani smells sweetly at nightfall when astonishingly dramatic violet and orange sunsets pattern the sky, and at quiet moments in the day the islands' rare birds will dart out of the trees to inspect you.
Everything on these unspoilt islands seems friendly, courteous and clean. The land gives generously with coconuts, mangoes, bananas, breadfruit, pineapples, and an equally bountiful sea yields up tuna, snapper, barracuda and kingfish. Copra and cinnamon are the main exports but the islands' tourism is the chief source of income.

The transition periods of April and October are fairly hot, with little breeze and calm seas.

On the less inhabited islands is an abundance of rare birds and plants, giant tortoises, turtles and spectacular tropical fish. Snorkelling here is usually known as goggling, and "goggle" you will at the brilliant underwater ballets going on in the coral gardens. Most famous of all the Seychelles' rare plant species is the giant, legendary aphrodisiac coco-de-mer palm. This is a gentle world, where the insects are strictly non-poisonous, there are no snakes, and even the fish are unafraid of men. The most explosive sight you'll see is a flamboyant tree in full scarlet bloom, or a bougainvillaea vine pouring over a wall in a cascade of molten purple.Early times
The Arabs certainly know these islands from the 9th century on but most shipping clings to the safer waters of the African coast.
