Seychelles Yacht Charter Guide
An archipelago of 115 islands northeast of Madagascar, Seychelles is the perfect antidote to the grayness of city life. If there is one thing that Seychelles is known for it’s an overwhelming variety of sea life and with 42 percent of the country protected it seems the islands will continue to remain as pristine as they are today.
The ideal trip should include plenty of snorkeling, diving, and walks along pristine beaches. Be sure to indulge in the tropical bounty of the islands – from the starchy breadfruit to the tart soursop – along with local dishes like octopus curry. Don’t even think about leaving without having a cold Seybreu beer (the archipelago consumes 114.6 litres of the beverage per capita second only to the Czech Republic).
Full of natural wonders as it is, it comes as no surprise that Seychelles has two UNESCO World Heritage Sites: Aldabra, the world’s second-largest raised coral atoll, and Vallée de Mai on Praslin, where you can find some of the best specimens of the Coco-de-Mer palm and its famed nut.
