4 of the Best Things to Do During Seychelles Sailing Holidays
The country of Seychelles is comprised of one hundred and fifteen islands just to the East of East Africa in the Indian Ocean. Most of the people there live on a group of forty-two islands that are often referred to as the inland islands. Almost all the other islands are uninhabited.
The temperatures are always fairly steady and do not fluctuate too much throughout the year. That alone makes it perfect for Seychelles sailing holidays.
Here are 4 of the best things to do during Seychelles sailing holidays:
- Anse Volbert
This area is more commonly known as the Golden Coast, due to the white pristine sand and crystal-clear waters. It is the most popular beach in the country, so it is a good thing that it is approximately a mile and a half long. Many people on Seychelles sailing holidays will want to visit this beach to sit in the sun, swim, and even snorkel to see the abundant marine life.
Victoria is the tiny capital of Seychelles, but no one should let the size stop them from visiting. While in the capital, people on Seychelles sailing holidays can visit the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens and the Sir Selwyn-Clarke Market, which has been open since 1840.
- Valleé de Mai Nature Reserve
The forty-eight acres of this nature reserve received UNESCO World Heritage status, because of the approximately six thousand coco-de-mer trees that are located there. These trees have not changed since they were first seen in prehistoric times and they are so beautiful that there was once a legend stating that this area was the site of the Garden of Eden. People can travel along the path through the trees as they keep an eye out for the wildlife that lives there.
- Curieuse Marine National Park
This national park is on the two-square mile island of Curieuse and it is basically a wild zoo. The most prominent creature on this island is the Seychelles tortoise, which is one of the largest tortoises in the world. It is quite easy for people on Seychelles sailing holidays to walk side by side with these animals and capture some pictures of them at the same time. Another attraction on this island is the former leper colony that is now a museum and historical site.
Warm weather and nature are two things that Seychelles sailing holidays can offer anyone that is looking for a fabulous vacation. People who decide to take one of the numerous Seychelles sailing holidays will find that they will have plenty to do every time they go ashore and even more when they return to their boat at the end of a long day.
