The Seychelles’ beaches compete with the best in the world. Amongst all the beaches, Anse Lazio on Praslin Island deserves a special mention. However, La Digue Island’s Anse Source D’Argent is also worth exploring.
A trip to the Seychelles is never complete without a visit to the Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve on Praslin Island. This park has been declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The unusually beautiful flora and fauna of this nature reserve draws thousands of visitors to this place as Vallée de Mai is the one and only place in the world where you will find the rare coco de mer palm. This palm produces the largest nut in the world. The place is also home to some rare birds such as the Seychelles bulbul, fruit pigeon, and the black parrot.
Aldabra Island in the outer circle of the archipelago has also been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a large population of giant tortoises has made the area a major tourist attraction. However, travellers who are more interested in indoor attractions, should try the Seychelles Natural History Museum and the National Museum of History.
