Seychelles is a popular destination for foodies. The food here is simple, fresh and absolutely amazing. If you are coming to Seychelles for the food, you are definitely in the right place. There are numerous Indian Ocean restaurants that serve the best seafood, Indian and French cuisines.

Seychelles is also a great spot for vegan travellers. While vegan food is relatively rare in the Indian Ocean, you can find plenty of Indian restaurants and cafés that serve vegan dishes such as roti, thali, and dhal.

If you are a seafood lover, you will be delighted to know that Seychelles is one of the best places in the world to experience sushi.


The island is easy to explore.

If you’re looking for a place where your family can enjoy exploring the islands on their own, Seychelles is the perfect destination. The country has only about 100 islands, so it’s easy to drive around and see everything.

There are ferries that connect each island, but if you don’t want to wait at one stopover point, there’s also an airport in Mahé that serves as an international hub for flights coming into Seychelles from all over Africa and other parts of India Ocean.

You may also want to take advantage of helicopter tours while you’re here—they’ll give you an aerial view of each island and show what lies beyond them (like beautiful beaches).


There are gorgeous, family-friendly resorts.

You can even book spa treatments at some hotels or get dressed up in your best vacation clothes and go out dancing on New Year’s Eve (if that’s what floats your boat).
