Located in the north east of Madagascar, the Seychelles island group is a popular superyacht charter destination with the lure of exceptional underwater pursuits and captivating landscapes. Due to its exceptional beauty, Praslin Island is considered the original site of the mythical Garden of Eden and is certainly worth a visit.
Amongst the oldest islands in the world, this barefoot getaway is swathed in miles of untouched shores sprinkled with lush, tropical flowers and inhabited by rare, exotic wildlife. When chartering a superyacht in the Seychelles, be sure to time for a private picnic lunch on a ribbon of powdery sand flanked by crystalline waters, palm-fringed jungles and granite boulders, where you might be accompanied by the odd sea turtle.
Synonymous with the Seychelles is of course its beaches; top picks include the famous Anse Source d’Argent, out-of-the-way Anse Marron and pretty Anse Lazio. Escape to the remote bliss of Denis Private Island or be transported back in time to serene La Digue, where cars are strictly prohibited. Anchor at the Aldabra Atoll, an awe-inspiring, protected island group surrounded by coral reefs with excellent snorkelling and also home to giant tortoises, manta rays and tiger sharks.
If you are looking for chic sophistication, head to Intendence Bay for luxurious surroundings and exquisite restaurants. Alternatively, those seeking adventure should head inland for incredible mountain walks, cascading waterfalls and rock climbing activities.
From emerald jungles to secret anchorages, idyllic beaches to dramatic shipwrecks, the Seychelles delivers a bewitching superyacht charter destination you will long to return to again and again.
