In the middle of the day, the canopy dapples bright spots onto the forest floor, where a visitor might welcome the spotlight for a moment. In a place like Vallée de Mai, one of the jewels of the Seychelles Islands, it’s easy to feel insignificant.
The Seychelles — a collection of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean — is an African nation, though its capital, Victoria, lies more than 1,000 miles from the continent. The remote location only adds to the country’s allure. While most of the population is confined to the three largest islands — Mahé, Praslin and La Digue — even the many uninhabited islands have a distinctly Seychelles character.
The exotic and rare birdlife, untouched jungles, and scenic beaches make these islands the ultimate getaway. A handful of trails surround and divide the many parks; visitors can choose a combination for hikes lasting from one to three hours. Every turn in every trail reveals a stunning array of green. These islands are one of only two places you can see the rare coco de mer palms, in addition to the other indigenous plant life that calls these islands home.
Even the beaches throughout the Seychelles — consistently celebrated as being among the world’s finest — offer unparalleled tranquility. The beaches of these islands are lined with granite, palms for shade, and waters of the most translucent blue. The peaceful nature of these beaches are what places them into a separate category within the realm of “world-class beaches.” The lack of bustle creates an environment of peace and relaxation. The pristine waters of the Seychelles islands make them ideal for those who enjoy scuba diving and snorkeling. Seychelles is home to one of the largest coral atolls in the world and home to the world’s largest giant tortoise population.
