Destination Seychelles

If you need a break then what better place to chill and feel the thrill of exoticism than Seychelles island which is off the coast of Tanzania; about 932 miles east of Africa, and 1,133 miles north of Madagascar. With a territory of 177 square miles and a population of 92,000, the Seychelles is the smallest African country. Seychelles gained independence from the British in 1976 and has now evolved into a presidential republic.

Lofty mountains, lush green plantations, sparkling ocean water, sizzling beaches, and glittering lagoons – Seychelles has it all. Besides admiring the amazing landscape, there is a mind-blowing range of best things to do in Seychelles. The beauty is breathtaking, so even if you don’t fancy exploring you can sit back with a piña colada cocktail and appreciate the nature while listening to the calming sea. The rock formations are unique and it’s guaranteed to be a once in a lifetime experience that you’ll never forget.

The piña colada is a popular classic cocktail invented in Puerto Rico made with pineapple juice, rum, and coconut, served blended or with crushed ice. The name means “strained pineapple” in Spanish. The original drink was invented in San Juan in 1954 by a bartender named Ramón “Monchito” Marrero.

Seychelles and Maldives, 1340 miles apart, are both popular destinations, but each one suits different traveler needs. Seychelles is more affordable and geared toward adventure, while Maldives is focused on luxury accommodations and private, secluded relaxation. If you were not sure then the Maldives is south of India and Sri Lanka.

One company that sails to Seychelles is Costa Cruzeiros. I’m, weighing up the idea of taking my wife for a holiday of a lifetime. They have a 117-day cruise leaving Barcelona, Spain. However, with an enormous price tag I won’t be going anytime soon.

Have a great vacation if you can afford it!
