This little archipelago in the Indian Ocean is paradise on Earth filled with stunning beaches, powdery-white sandy shores lines, uninhabited islands, and kilometers of reefs. We warn you, it might be a difficult decision on which islands you'd like to visit as every single one holds its own special charm. But with the Seychelles Travel Guide and Offline Map rest assured that you'll be able to pick your little slice of paradise without a problem.

1.      Praslin Island

What is often dubbed as the "Garden of Eden", this island is only 12 kilometers long and 5 kilometers wide, but it has a plethora of things to offer. Take a dip in the most beautiful beaches on the entire Seychelles like Anse Lazio. It is considered as the best beach to visit and for good reason. The beach is bordered by large granite boulders making it postcard pretty. Praslin is also home to one of the famed UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Vallée de Mai. The reserve is full of lush natural palm trees preserved in almost its original state.

2.      La Digue

Even the tiny, La Digue, packs a punch when it comes offering the beauty of nature. With only 2,000 or so inhabitants it is the epitome of island life. You can expect to be completely relaxed with its slow pace and absolute silence. Signs of modern civilization like asphalt roads and tall buildings are absent and you can even see the occasional ox carts servicing as taxis. To preserve the calmness of the island getting around is exclusively done by foot or by bike.

3.      Mahé

Mahé is the biggest island of Seychelles and is home to 86 percent of the country's total population. You'd be surprised for such a small island it holds an international airport and the city of Victoria--the smallest capital city in the world. The island also offers a variety of entertainment options. You can even go hiking to the top of Seychelles' highest peak, the Morne Seychellois, which lies in the Morne Seychellois National Park.
