Sitting on the Indian Ocean, a short distance away from the eastern shores of the continent of Africa, lies a nation that contains a treasure trove of beautiful sights and breathtaking adventure. The Republic of Seychelles, consisting of an archipelago of more than a hundred islands, is one of the most overlooked vacation hotspots in the world.
A place where unspoilt beaches meet a back-drop of lush green vegetation, and if one chooses to visit one of her magnificent islands, then a Seychelles beach resort would definitely be an ideal place to stay. The AVANI Seychelles Barbarons Resort & Spa is one of the nation’s most sought after accommodation hotspots.
If one gets bored by the serene landscapes and the welcoming waters of the islands, then you could seek the thrills of many watersports that are prevalent in the region. The largest island in Seychelles, the island of Mahe, is where watersports are most popular. The islands of Seychelles play refuge to a very particular assortment of wild-life that is indigenous to the land, such as the giant tortoises that roam the beaches and the waters of Seychelles. Many tourists also visit Seychelles for the many opportunities the islands present to witness some rare and majestic species of birds that are unique to the archipelago. The marine life of Seychelles has been uniquely desensitized to people due to fishing being banned in the seas of Seychelles. The wild-life is therefore un-afraid of snorkelers, allowing visitors to get up close and close personal with the marine life in a manner that is incredibly rare, and magical.
A place that is both family friendly, and has the potential to indulge any adventure seeker, the republic of Seychelles is an ideal place for a vacation. So the next time you wish to escape from everyday life but is unsure of where to go, the Seychelles might just be the place for you.
