Last Minute Holidays By Air - The Seychelles

The Seychelles: Nature has been unsparing in its generosity to this cluster of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean. Jungle-wrought before its first human settlements two centuries ago, the Seychelles today are a perfect shoo-in for paradise. You're spoilt for choice when it comes to solitary, celluliod-friendly beaches, and whether you go to the more populated inner islands or the outlying ones, you're bound to feel like you've made a good choice. The inner granitic islands of the Seychelles are its most populous; Mahe is the largest with lovely bays, sun-spangled waters and granite peaks, an island whose beauty isn't hindered by its classy bouquet of vacation opportunities. The Country's interiors are largely made up of the magnificient Morne Seychellois National Park, which embraces the Seychelles highest Peak and is choked with various forest systems. Languish on Praslin island, yet another beach haven that strikes a balance between Mahe's relative humdrumness and the comatose pace of the smaller La Digue island. Its world heritage Vallee de Mai National Park is home to the rare coco de mer palms. Aride and Bird Island northwards are the Seychelles hottest birding and eco tourism hubs crawling with legions of terns, noddies, hawksbills and also green turtles. Wee granitic cousin island too, only 1 km in diameter, is swamped with more than 3,00,000 birds. The Seychelles is a proper dream sequence except it's real and increasingly affordable? No, there is no catch.

Visa: Tourists are issued a visa on arrival for a maximum of 15 Days provided you have a passport that is valid for at least six months from the date of arrival, a return or an onward ticket, proof of accomodation and sufficient funds (approx Rs.6670 Per Day Per Person)
