Seychelles — Located about 1,000 miles east of Kenya in the western Indian Ocean, the Seychelles – an archipelago of about 115 pristine islands – offers visitors who take the trouble to venture to its distant shores a true brush with paradise. As undeveloped as tropical destinations get, this island republic is an idyllic retreat for those seeking to really get away from it all. More eco-friendly elegance than island glam, the Seychelles will enchant with colonial-Creole rhythms, powder-white shores, and dazzling gem-colored waters (jade, topaz, and sapphire) set against a backdrop of coconut-heavy palms, ocean-polished granite boulders, and lush, tangled jungle. Mahé, Praslin, and La Digue are the three main islands, but there are many more to explore, giving vacationers the opportunity to venture off the beaten track and experience unspoiled and untrammeled nature.

Why Go

For legendary, picture-perfect beaches, a luxurious dearth of crowds, and a light-footed and worry-free pace.
