PSeychelles Beaches & Islands

Africa is a land of surprises, and no other place on Earth offers more of the unexpected than the 115 inner granitic and outer coralline islands of Seychelles Archipelago. With the exception of Praslin and Mahe that hosts 90% of the Creole population, the islands are rarely touched by humans. The two islands, though, are highly-desired for engaging guests who seek the utmost tropical African tour, and island hopping takes you into the more secluded and isolated islands.

Seek The Utmost Tropical African tour,

On Mahe Island, tour farms where fragrant vanilla is grown, all-encompassing bays, dense inland forests, touring the capital town of Victoria and shopping in bazaars. Praslin, the second largest island, is popular amongst our guests who long for quiet beaches and the mesmerizing experience of Vallee de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The third largest island is La Digue, an off-beat laidback island. Moonlight Tours Expedition also recommends beach vacationing in the private isles like North, Fregate, Denis and Desroches Islands.
