Seychelles

If you want a relaxing beach vacation during the summer, then you should really consider visiting this place. The Seychelles are a group of 115 islands, only a few inhabited, in the Indian Ocean that lie off the coast of East Africa, northeast of Madagascar. No visa is required for all nationalities, though all foreigners must have passport valid for at least 6 months, and must have proof of accommodation bookings before arrival. An initial entry permit is granted for 1 month but can be extended for a maximum of 3 months at a time up to a maximum of 1 year in total. You can get in either by plane or boat, while getting around is possible by plane, boat, helicopter, car or by bus.

There are plenty of things to do here such as visiting the beaches, the Vallee de Mai national park, Aldabra Atoll (the world’s largest coral atoll). You can also participate in popular watersports such as windsurfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing. Land sports like golf, tennis, squash, badminton, horseback riding, biking and hiking are also popular on the Seychelles Islands. You also shouldn’t miss out on visiting the most popular nightclub “Lovenut” in the center of Victoria (the capitol of Seychelles) which is a 100 metres walk from central Taxi station.
