Seychelles has 115 granite and coral islands which lie between 480km to 1600km from the east coast of Africa in the Western Indian Ocean. Seychelles represents an archipelago of timeless beauty, tranquillity, and harmony that is famous for its white beaches and turquoise waters along with its great diversity from lush forests to tropical wildlife. It is home to two UNESCO World Heritage Sites – the legendary Vallee de Mai on Praslin once believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden and the renowned Aldabra, the world’s largest raised coral reef, first seen by early Arab seafarers of the 9th century AD.
