Even the name comes with a pearly pink sigh of delight; rolling off the tongue as sweet as split coconuts on deserted beaches, enchanted islands, and French words that rise like music in star-laden nights. Seychelles makes us whimsical and with more than a hundred islands to explore – who can blame us? In the capital of Victoria, the streets are surrounded by virginal rainforest, spiraling mountain peaks, and breathtaking beaches – sixty no less.
Over on Praslin, you can play golf until the sun is replaced with the moon, and on La Digue, rare birds watch you ride bicycles curiously from the branch of some exotic tree. Seychelles is certainly a place of splendor; a spot to sail catamarans from island to island, to swim alongside wise, old turtles, and to lose yourself in the true meaning of barefoot bespoke luxury. Here’s where to stay, dine and play when lost in the fairytale archipelago of the East African poster child.
Seychelles is renowned for an amazing array of dining options – everything from Creole to South East Asian, Indian, Chinese, and even Japanese cuisines.
