Why visit Seychelles?

Get back to nature! The 115 islands are famous for their natural beauty, and because the archipelago is located 1,600 km (1,000 mi) East of the African coast in the Indian Ocean between Asia and Africa you really can get away from it all. In recent years, the Seychelles has seen a surge of tourist interest bringing new luxury hotels to the islands.

When should I visit?

Really depends on what you want! The islands are warmer between November to March but this brings more humidity, brought about by the North West trade winds and it is also Seychelles rainy season. The cooler months are between April and September with more chances of soaking up some rays.

Must-sees?

Unearth Praslin island's, a 15 minute flight away from Seychelles International Airport, forgotten icon with a visit to its stunning waterfall. The Seychelle's capital, Victoria, located on Mahe Island, is worth a saunter. Check out its inticate clock tower and explore the beautiful botanic gardens. For the perfect beach, take a short island hop to La Digue where you can find the world's most perfect beach at Bonnet Carré.

Local traditions?

A carnival full of colours takes place in the Seychelles capital every year. The Carnaval International de Victoria takes place evey October and places the islands on a global stage with fantastic music, dance and exhibitions.

How do I get there?

British Airways flies all year to Seychelles from London Heathrow Terminal 5 twice a week on Wednesdays and Saturdays, with a flight time of 10 hours. An alternative route, which could be cheaper, is to fly to Doha with British Airways or Qatar Airways, a flight time of 6 hours 45 minutes, and take a Qatar Airways flight to Doha, around 5 hours. Members of the British Airways Executive Club, using Avios, may find some good deals on this route from Doha.
