Basking in pleasant temperatures all year round, the shapely granite islands and coral atolls which make up the Seychelles could have been custom-made for holidays. This faraway tropical paradise, way out in the Indian Ocean, some 1600km off the Tanzanian coast, is best known for its achingly beautiful beaches – regularly voted the best in the world, and adored by photographers. It’s also good for diving and snorkelling (March–May & Sept–Nov have the best visibility) and hiking (best from May to September) and it has a commendable conservation record, making it superb for eco-tourism. . .
