Seychelles

The Republic of Seychelles comprises 115 islands occupying a land area of 455 km² in the western
Indian Ocean. It represents an archipelago of legendary beauty that extends from between 4 and
10 degrees south of the equator and which lies between 480km and 1,600km from the east coast
of Africa. 

Of these 115 islands, 41 constitute the oldest mid-oceanic granite islands on earth while a further
74 form the low-lying coral atolls and reef islands of the Outer Islands. The islands of the Seychelles
archipelago cluster around the main island of Mahé, home to the international airport and the capital,
Victoria, and its satellites Praslin and La Digue. Together, these Inner Islands form the cultural and
economic hub of the nation and contain the majority of Seychelles’ tourism facilities as well as its most
stunning beaches.

The Seychelles’ climate is one which is always warm and does not reach extremes of heat or cold.
The temperature rarely drops below 24°C or rises above 32°C. All but the remotest southern islands
lie outside the cyclone belt making Seychelles’ a year round destination for sun worshippers and beach lovers.

The cosmopolitan Seychellois are a colourful blend of peoples of different races, cultures and religions. 
At different times in its history, people of African, European and Asian origin have come to Seychelles,
bringing with them their distinct traditions and customs and contributing to the way of life and to the vibrant
Seychellois culture.
