Seychelles Islands
In 1502 the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama discovered the Amirantes islands. In 1609 John Jordan was the first British to set foot on the Seychelles. Mistaken for the original 'Garden of Eden' by General Gordon over 100 years ago, these 115 islands in the Indian Ocean have retained their charm and mystique as one of the last paradises on earth. Spread over one million square kilometers of tranquil waters just south of the Equator, some 43 granite islands are clustered around Mahé, while 73 coral islands extend towards the East African coast.

How to Reach Seychelles
You can reach Seychelles by air or by cruise. A number of international airlines operate flights to Seychelles, landing at Victoria, which has the only international airport in the country. You can take the domestic airlines, Air Seychelles, to get to the other islands of Mahé, Praslin, Frégate, Desroches, Bird and Denis Island from Victoria. Alternatively you can take the chartered helicopters, yachts, schooners and ferries too. Within the islands, mini-mokes (jeeps) are available for hire and local buses ply regularly.

The best time to visit this place and to admire its natural beauty is from May to September.

Regarding accommodation, there are a lot of hotels in Seychelles. But you will find more luxury and expensive hotels as compared to budget accommodation.

Creole, French and English are the three official languages of Seychelles. 94% of Seychelles speak Creole, the native language, with an inflection of French.

The Republic of Seychelles, or Seychelles as we know it, is an archipelago of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean. It is located between 4 degrees and 10 degrees south of the equator, and lies at a distance of 480 kilometers to 1600 kilometers from the east coast of Africa. The Seychelles are located in the Indian Ocean, between Africa and India, and 1,600km (990 miles) east of Kenya.
As the Indian subcontinent shifted northwards to collide with Asia, a group of islands got left behind and went on to make up the Republic of Seychelles. Seychelles is located right in the middle of the Indian Ocean, between India and the east coast of Africa. While all the other islands of the world are of biological or volcanic origin, these are the only granitic islands in the world, with some unique rock formations. The islands comprising the Republic of Seychelles cover an area of 455 square kilometers. There is also an Exclusive Economic Zone covering 1.4 million square kilometers of the western portion of the Indian Ocean

Mahé offers the perfect introduction to the Seychelles with its steep mountain backbone, slopes carpeted with lush tropical vegetation and sweeping coastline fringed by palm trees. The resort covers an area of approximately 117 hectares on the island's southwestern coastline with a fabulous beach frontage of 800 meters overlooking what has been described as one of the 10 most beautiful beaches in the world.

Seychelles presents an amalgam of Indian, African, European and Chinese cultures. The native language, Creole has its roots in French; the cuisine is basically French but uses Indian spices and Chinese methods. The music here traces its origin to African rhythms and their dances draw liberally from Europe. This combination has resulted in the Sega beat, a song and dance unique to Seychelles and the other islands of the Indian Ocean.

Seychelles as a nation is relatively young. In 1770, a group of Frenchmen settled on these islands with a band of Indians, Africans and whites. The islands remained under French control till Napoleon lost the battle of Waterloo. They were formally handed over to the British in 1814 under the Treaty of Paris. At that time Seychelles had a population of 3,500 people.
