Seychelles Travel Guide
Around 1,000 miles east of mainland Africa and scattered across the vast Indian Ocean, Seychelles is a land of perpetual summer. White-sand beaches, lofty granite boulders, palm-fringed forests, and azure waters are the ethos of Seychelles tourism. The 115-island archipelago is extraordinarily picturesque with a diverse array of wildlife and an amalgamation of Asian and African cultures.
History of Seychelles
Though in 1502, the Portuguese explorer, Vasco Da Gama sighted the island of Seychelles; it’s in 1609 that it got inhabited by the Britishers. However, in 1756, the archipelago was officially annexed to France. In 1814, Britishers gained control over the place, though the slavery got abolished later in 1834. And, after the establishment of a coalition government in 1976, the Seychelles embraced a democratic system in the year of 1993.
Take a tour to the island of Cerfs neighbouring Mahe, and dig into its rich history for a wonderful experience.
Language of Seychelles
With deportees from France in the 19th century, and inhabitants coming from Asian countries, including China, India, and Malay later, this place has embraced many cultures. The mother language of the Seychelles is Creole, also called Seselwa. However, French and English are also recognised amongst the main languages.

How to Reach Seychelles
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
Seychelles has two major airports: Seychelles International Airport (SEZ) in Victoria and Praslin Island Airport. Seychelles International Airport is the primary point of entry for international travelers. The airport is located in Victoria, the capital city of Seychelles, which is situated on the northeastern side of Mahé Island. It is the hub of Air Seychelles, the national airline. The airport is served by international airlines such as British Airways, Austrian Airlines, Emirates, Kenya Airways, and Turkish Airlines. Long-haul scheduled flights to major destinations in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East are available from this airport.
Another major airport in Seychelles, Praslin Island Airport is currently served by Air Seychelles. The airport operates scheduled flights to Mahé and charter planes to the other islands. Zil Air provides helicopter flights to most of the inner and outer islands.
Around 400 kilometers of paved road network connects the islands in Seychelles. The road network is poor outside major urban areas. Renting a car from the airport or the hotel is a great way to go on sightseeing in Seychelles, especially on Mahé Island. Due to lack of proper public transport in Seychelles, traveling by car allows travelers to visit and spend time at attractions by their own choice. Bike rentals are also available in downtown Victoria.
Seychelles Public Transport Corporation (SPTC) operates daily buses on Mahé and Praslin Islands from morning to evening. In rural areas, especially on La Digue Island, ox-carts are a popular way of public transport.
The main seaport in Seychelles is Victoria. Cat Cocos and Inter Island ferry run regular catamaran ferries between Mahé and Praslin Island. Ferries are available on designated time at 15 minutes of interval. Ferries to smaller islands can also be arranged, but it is less reliable.

Ankit's 5 days trip to SeychellesThe Services provided by the Travel agent Favourite the Holiday maker and CTS were really good and the complete itinerary was shared well before time and all the services provided were as per the itinerary and there was no last minute rush. Just a suggestion to Favourite the Holiday Makers guys that island transfers from Mahe to Praslin should not be done on the First day as it becomes really hectic and tiring also need to wait for around 5 - 6 hrs at the jetty station to wait for the transfers. I would recommend Favourite the Holiday Makers travel agents for the services that they offered at very competitive prices and also consider them for the future trips
Shilpi's 10 days trip to Seychelles1) We had very reluctantly booked our honeymoon trip with travel triangle but after we reached our destination we were greeted very politely and had a blast throughout the trip. They had preplanned every thing and made sure that we were comfortable (rooms,cabs,drivers and food) 2) Their choice of lunch at Queen's of India was the best. 3) The only problem we faced was at Ubud. The resort they had booked Ubud Heaven Sayan villa was not proper. The concept of the resort was awesome but poorly executed. Cleanliness was nil and absolutely no choice for breakfast. Food was tolerable. Otherwise we enjoyed our trip and thank them for making our trip so memorable. The best memory was the trip to Gili Island. Crystal clear beaches and dinner along side the beach was the best time we had.
Yagya's 6 days trip to SeychellesWe could not have chosen a better place than Maldives for our Honeymoon and better travel agents than Nitika and Gaurav Khetan from Dream Travels .. they ensured to provided us the best in our budget and with amazing patience.. The property “Olhuveli Beach Resort” is an amazing property with good water life and areas to explore. We stayed in Grand Beach water villa with pool for 3 nights and in Sunset Jacuzzi water villa for 2 nights.. both the rooms were worth every penny and we highly recommend everyone to experience this.. Thanks again to our agents for pushing us to go for it. We did have to compromise on the service of the resort though. The staff is not very humble plus they have their biases for Indians ... be it the chef, the waiters, baggi drivers etc. Mr Upal from Dhoni bar and Mr Nitesh from Lagoon bar are very nice bartenders though... Best memory for first time Maldives Visitors can mostly be the first time they reach their resort ... the beauty of the place is beyond comparison
Vinayak's 6 days trip to SeychellesThe trip was well planned and well executed. Holiday box representative was helpful on all occasions. We had a minor negative experience on the last day but when we gave them the feedback they were very receptive. All in all a very good experience.
Nkaushik's 5 days trip to SeychellesHotel room was not as per the promised one. During my stay in Mahe i was promised an ocean view room but was given a general room. On enquiring hotel staff told that they can't give ocean view room since it is not available. Same situation has happened in praslin where in my hotel doesn't had electricity for nearly 4 hours. WiFi was not working for the full 2 days. Overall my experience was not good as far as stay is concerned and that was the only main factor that I choose to book through travel triangle. In future will try to book through some other websites. Only thing that went smoothly is the cab transfer.

The weather in December is fairly cloudy at times and rainfall is pretty common due to the Northwest Monsoon. So, if you're looking for a sunny holiday in December, Seychelles weather is not ideal.
Seychelles is a politically stable country. The islands are located outside of cyclone belt so there is no urgent threat of thunderstorms. Avoid going outdoors or to remote islands when the rainfall is incessant.
Seychelles is a luxury holiday destination so, most accommodations are available in form of high-end resorts and beach resorts. However, guesthouses and lodges are available in Mahe and Praslin Islands.
