Island life might not get much better than the Seychelles. The islands have long enchanted travelers from all walks of life.
“The Seychelles are a great destination during any season, blessed with a warm, tropical climate all year long and located outside the cyclone belt. A quality that has earned them the nickname, “the land of perpetual summer,” writes Glynn Burridge for National Geographic.
It really is a land for all types of visitors.
“This island paradise is not just about laying on the beach, however. Visitors can indulge in other activities, such as world-class diving, snorkeling, fishing, hiking, island hopping, golf, spa retreats, zip lining, and horseback riding,” notes Burridge.
Make sure you get a taste of the local culture by sampling its culinary offerings.

“No stay in Seychelles is complete without tasting the delicious Seychellois Creole cuisine — a blend of old French cuisine and piquant Indian and Chinese flavors. While this fusion is best enjoyed in local homes, many restaurants can also introduce you to its amazing flavors and textures,” says Burridge.
There’s also a lively music scene.
“If you’re looking to relax and unwind to the sounds of live music, try the Boardwalk Bar & Grill, a magnet for weekend revelers. Hardcore partygoers should check out local clubs Katiolo and Tequila Boom,” Burridge suggests.
There are also options for those who want a more spiritual experience or those looking for adventures. For more on what to do in the Seychelles, read on here.
