Fly overnight from London via Abu Dhabi and Mahé
DAYS 2 to 6
On arrival on Mahé you will directed to a small plane for the short flight to PRASLIN, the 'perfect tropical island' with coral sand beaches and lush vegetation including the world heritage site, Vallée de Mai and its infamous Coco de Mer palms.
L'Archipel is situated in the north east of the island, in a colourful and exotically scented garden. Each bungalow overlooks the private beach and is surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The hotel serves delicious international cuisine and the chef's speciality Creole dishes are always a favourite.
It is easy to arrange a day on the neighbouring island of La Digue to enjoy Anse Source d'Argent, widely regarded as the world’s most beautiful beach with spectacular granite formations and pale turquoise waters. Excursions to other islands are also readily available such as Curieuse, where an island trail meanders through a nature reserve, and St Pierre for some incredible snorkelling. To enjoy the beauty of Praslin itself, rent a car or bike or wander along one of the many nature trails.
DAYS 7 to 9
Then we will take you to Desroches Island Resort with its delightful beach suites and villas. The coral island of DESROCHES is part of the Amirantes group and has several miles of pristine white sand beaches on which to relax.
You will be tempted by a menu with fresh ingredients grown on the island and fish caught daily by local fishermen. Should you need some activity, you can scuba dive, snorkel, deep sea fish, play tennis and the island can be explored by mountain bike.
Fly via Mahé and Abu Dhabi overnight to London
There are 115 islands in the SEYCHELLES... Maybe choose North Island with the ultimate in decadence and barefoot luxury where the array of facilities means that days can be spent as actively as desired. Or perhaps go to remote coral Bird Island with simple, spacious bungalows surrounded by palm trees and a white sandy beach, with not much more than thousands of feathered friends and maybe some turtles and a giant tortoise for company.
