Seychelles Holiday Packages for Independent Travelers
With magnificent beaches and brilliant blue seas, it is hardly surprising the Seychelles ranks among the world’s most idyllic island holiday getaways. Marooned in the center of the Indian Ocean, this archipelago is made up of 115 exclusive islands.
Seychelles holiday packages are not necessarily beyond anyone’s budget. With good pre-planning and some island knowledge, you’ll discover that it is perfectly possible to enjoy the beautiful islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. You can book your Seychelles holiday packages in advance and customize it as per your requirements.
How do I get there?
There are regular direct flights to Seychelles. However, some flights routes through Dubai or Abu Dhabi. Emirates and Etihad are the primary carriers. Smaller carriers like Ethiopian Airways sometimes have less expensive deals! Airfares are lower throughout the rainy season from October to April.
When should I go?
The busiest periods are between December and January, and notably throughout Seychelles in the summer from May to Sept. The winter from October to Apr is when the islands of Seychelles receive most of their annual rainfall, but because the climate falls considerably below 24 degrees all year round, you will still a pretty good prospect of at least a beach lounging weather. Unsurprisingly, you will have a better prospect of snagging a deal throughout the low season. Even the destination management companies (DMC) offer Seychelles Holiday Packages and deals including cat cocos ferry and land transfers.
Which islands do I visit?
There are three chief islands that are easy and affordable to get to. Mahe, is the biggest island, home to the international airfield and the capital Seychelles, Victoria. The main attractions here are road walking, snorkelling and sight seeing, diving. The 2nd biggest island, Praslin, lies roughly 50km northeast. It has a much quieter vibe compared to Mahe, as well as plenty of stretches of sand like the sheltered cove of Anse Lazio. The island is also home to the Vallee de Mai nature reserve, a Unesco World Heritage Site and one of the very some places on the islands where you could see wild coco de mer – the world’s biggest Coconut, notorious for its resemblance to a pert posterior.
Tiny La Digue is 12km east and is probably the classic Seychelles escape, a weary island where everybody travels by bicycle and there aren’t any street lights to obscure the stars. It is also where you’ll get the most magnificent beaches, like Anse Lagoon Source d’Argent as well as the coves of both Grand and Petite Anse. Reaching the more remote islands is where things start to get expensive. Many islands are available like day trips, including the giant tortoise reserves on Cousin Island and the numerous islands of the Ste Anne Marine Park.
