Granite boulders seemingly dropped from the heavens dot the beaches of the Seychelles Islands.
Granite boulders seemingly dropped from the heavens dot the beaches of the Seychelles Islands. And while its these picturesque beaches that most travelers recognize, the Seychelles is home to nesting Hawksbill turtles, raised coral islands and a reserve with the highest density of lizards per hectare in the world. Uninhabited for much of recorded history, the islands were only first “sighted” by Vasco da Gama in the early 1500s.
Today, the Seychelles are known for vigilant conservation efforts (over 40% of the land is under conservation status), luxury beach resorts and private island escapes – such as North Island. Beyond the romance and luxury, the Seychelles offers a plethora of natural history experiences focused on the unique flora and fauna of the islands. Your Travel Guru has been exploring the islands for decades and will make sure that your travels in the Seychelles delve deeper than a simple beach holiday!
