Seychelles       Seychelles
An archipelago nestled in the Indian Ocean, where the iridescent white of the soft beaches blends with the thousand different shades of crystal clear water and with the intense green of a lush and uncontaminated nature. The Seychelles, composed of 115 coral and granite islands, are one of the 25 oases of biodiversity in the world: hotspots that, although covering only 1.4% of the Earth’s surface, contain 60% of the rarest species of plants, birds, mammals and reptiles threatened with extinction. The Seychelles territory is protected for almost 47% of its land area, which houses some of the rarest species of flora and fauna from around the globe such as the famous Coco de Mer, the endemic palm tree that boasts the largest seeds in the world. We went to discovery this Eden helped by SeyVillas, a tour operator specialized in the Seychelles that helps to create your own tailor made trip allowing you to fully immerse yourself in this heavenly experience (

Responsibly Seychelles
SeyVillas not only follows step by step who wants to organize a trip to the Seychelles – from flying to accommodation in guest houses, in small hotels or 5-star facilities, from itineraries to the most characteristic restaurants, from cruises to honeymoon – but it also sponsors several organizations that promote and guarantee the welfare of the archipelago. Unfortunately, in this wonderful Eden the coral reefs are in strong decline, especially around Cerf Island, due to climate change, land reclamation, anchorage of boats, illegal fishing and especially not very careful tourists. Thus, through the Cerf Island Conservation Program, active coral rehabilitation can be supported; while choosing the Marine Discovery Experiences (one of the many activities proposed by SeyVillas) you can actively contribute to raising awareness of the marine environment through a guided snorkeling tour in collaboration with WiseOceans, a marine education and conservation organization that operates globally for guarantee a better future for the oceans (info:
