The Best Seychelles Adventure Travel and Conservation

The Seychelles is a remote Indian ocean island nation perfect for travelers looking to unwind on some of the world’s most idyllic beaches and also fit in a bit of adventure. With its unspoiled coral-fringed talcum powder sand beaches, secluded luxury villas surrounded by massive granite rock formations, romantic private island hideaways, some of the best spots for scuba diving in the world, and endless summer climate, a Seychelles honeymoon or family trip is likely to be one of the most memorable vacations of your life.

On top of being a perfect slice of island paradise, the Seychelles are an incredibly biodiverse ecosystem that is home to whale sharks, rare giant tortoises, endangered dugongs, tuna, and more fascinating marine life. With an understanding of how important it is to conserve its pristine natural environment, 99 percent of which is ocean, the Seychelles government is also a top destination committed to environmental protection. In early 2018 the government announced a new conservation measure to create two huge marine protected areas, guaranteeing that 16 percent of the country’s ocean territory will be preserved and better defended against threats like climate change and illegal fishing.

A 26 Foot Tall Raised Coral Reef Home to 100,000 Giant Tortoises

From above, the Aldabra Atoll, adrift the Indian Ocean, looks like a giant utopian green fortress - much like the Aldabra tortoise from which it gets its' name - a 470 pound gentle giant native to these waters and these bathlike turquoise waters and the greater Seychelles archipelago that dwells upon them. The species roam freely (and slowly) across many & most of the 115 isles, but this one atoll in particular is home to more than 100,000 i.e. two-thirds of the species' global population. This same atoll is also home to the world's second largest raised coral reef, topping out at 26 feet! 

A World Heritage site, consisting of four coral islands encircling an immense central lagoon and bizarre limestone structures referred to as champignons like the one pictured above. Over time, tidal waters will erode the coral, gradually chipping away at the structure's teetering stem before eventually toppling over into shallow waters.
