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.
