What can I say about the Seychelles, except WOW!
It really is everything you would imagine and have seen in the photos. It boasts some of the most photographed beaches in the world, and is a rich mix of culture, community, nature, food and fun.
Our first stop was Mahe Island where we stayed at the Constance Ophelia hotel. It's spread over a vast amount of natural beauty with it's own private beach, helicopter landing pad on a hill top, as well as home to Dusty and his friends, who is the oldest giant tortoise at 108 years old.
My favorite part of the hotel was that it has it's own zip line that runs through the forest.
Mahe is easy to get around and there are many cultural sites to visit on the island as well as shopping areas such as the old Victoria Market for some fresh local food.
Our next stop was the island of Pralin, where we stayed at the luxurious and breathtaking Raffles hotel. Each villa has its own private pool that overlooks the ocean.
Whist in the Seychelles we also took part in the annual creole festival and visited the slow paced island of La Digue, where time really does stand still.
The Seychelles is a place where you can relax and have fun at night, but most of all for me, it is steeped in natural beauty, and there is nothing better for the health than to be surrounded by untouched nature.
