Seychelles: a tropical paradise to live an extraordinary experience between nature and some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
The Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 tropical islands located in the Indian Ocean between the 4 ° and the 100 ° parallel south of the Equator. It is located north-east of Madagascar, 1,500 kms off the coast of East Africa.
The Creole population that inhabits the Seychelles Islands is the result of a heterogeneous mixture of different peoples: from Africans to Arabs, from Europeans to Orientals. In addition to Creole, the official language, English and French are widely spoken. This is the result of years of disputes between the two countries, ended with the independence of Seychelles in 1976.
Considered among the most beautiful islands of the Indian Ocean and of the world, they are a true tropical paradise that offer the opportunity to live an extraordinary and unique experience. The flora and fauna, the culture, attractions and unique resorts make these islands one of the most fascinating and sought-after destinations of the world.
The climate is pleasant throughout the year. It is tropical, with a temperature that changes continuously between 24 ° and 33 ° degrees. Humidity is quite high with conditions that change depending on the island but generally there are two main seasons according to trade winds: between October and March they blow from the north-west and the sea is generally calm, between May and September they blow from the south-east and the sea is slightly rough.
