GENERAL

Paradise whatever the time of year

Book a holiday to the Seychelles with The Co-operative Travel and you can be sure of finding the best deal and your own little piece of paradise whatever the time of year

Located in the clear blue waters of the Indian Ocean, the Seychelles is a set of 115 tropical islands boasting white sands, coconut palm trees and a tropical climate which ensures the archipelago is a top destination all year round.

One of the most popular islands is Mahe, home to the capital, Victoria, and the international airport. Mahe alone boasts 70 beaches and along with the nearby islands of Praslin and La Digue, is the main economic and tourism centre of the Seychelles

For those looking to relax on pristine powder-soft sand surrounded by clear waters, the Seychelles is an ideal destination. But if you do tire of lying on the beach and are ready for something a little more active, the Seychelles doesn't disappoint. Sailing is a popular pastime for many locals and also provides the opportunity to go island hopping for a taste of what the rest of the archipelago has to offer. If fishing is your passion then there are plenty of companies offering organised trips.

Experience the adventurous in the Seychelles

Clear waters make this an ideal destination for swimming and snorkelling, while the more adventurous might want to strap on a tank and flippers and try their hand at diving. Coral reefs, wrecks and breathtaking underwater scenery help to make the Seychelles one of the most spectacular diving destinations in the world, where the water temperature can reach almost 30C.

Jet skiing, horse riding, kayaking and windsurfing are just some of the other options which will help keep you entertained on either a package holiday or all-inclusive holiday.

With plenty of opportunities to build up an appetite, you'll soon be ready to try some Seychelles cuisine which has a number of influences including French, African and Indian. Fresh fish understandably features heavily on most menus, as do locally grown fruits such as papaya and coconut.

The Co-operative Travel is here to help if you're looking for a last minute holiday or late deals to get a taste of paradise.
