The Seychelles really is an island paradise, with a superb climate and idyllic aplm fringed white sand beaches.

The Seychelles are found 750 miles from mainland Africa, and consist of two main islands - Mahé and Praslin. The population is descendants from French settlers who arrived in 1770 and African slaves from Mauritius.

    Great pics and tips about a dream destination. The name 'Seychelles' alone makes me forget the nasty weather outside my window.
