About Seychelles Tourism

Around 1,000 miles east of mainland Africa and scattered across the vast Indian Ocean, Seychelles is a land of perpetual summer. Most part of Seychelles tourism is also due to a wide variety of flora and fauna. The island is no less than a paradise on earth and is blessed with serenity and tranquility. 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.

How to Reach Seychelles

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

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.

By Road

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.

By Sea

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.

    Krishneet's 8 days trip to Seychelles

    Atul is an excellent travel agent. He was always readily available on call thorughout the planning stage and during the trip. All transfers organised were very punctual and the cabs were very clean. Would definitely recommend Atul and Trip Nexa.

    Nikhil's 6 days trip to Seychelles

    We had a wonderful time thanks to the excellent planning work done by the agents. The only feedback would be to try and find an optimal rate for extension of checkouts as in Seychelles the hotels had check out at 10 or 11 whilst most check-ins are at 2.

    Bangalore

    Suhas's 7 days trip to Seychelles

    Travel agent was responsive throughout which was good but on the arrival we were informed about a change in the hotel which was unexpected and the reasons were not clear enough. Thankfully the replacement hotel turned out to be a good experience. We were promised bicycles at La Digue but on arrival
    were told they were not available and we had to pay from our pockets. Apart from these 2 situations, everything else was taken care. But there is a need for improvement with travel agents

    Sai's 4 days trip to Seychelles

    Thank you "Dream Travels" for making our honeymoon very memorable. Let me start with few details: 1) Trip booking and options Thanks for giving us the most flexible options for our trip. The overall booking experience was smooth and amazing. Our travel agent was always available on phone and even
    though we were in different time zones she made sure to be available to take my phone call and accommodate all out needs. 2) Pick up and drop off On our arrival at the airport the local travel agent and car driver in Seychelles were already waiting for us. They gave us a warm welcome and on the way to resort explained us about the trip details, They gave their contact no and made sure to call them anytime if needed. 3)Hotel Resort The hotel resort was amazing. We stayed in Carana Beach Resort (1N - Ocean view chalet and 2N- Ocean View Chalet with pool). Pros: Private Beach Amazing views Friendly and helpful staff Cons: Food ( The food in the resort was not that great) Wifi in hotels (Unlike other hotels , this resort will only hand over limited wifi code which did not work) 4) Day outing - Full day glass bottom tour with lunch. This was by far the best experience we had in Seychelles. The lunch was awesome.
