The recorded history of Seychelles dates back to the 17th century. The islands were appropriated and settled by France in the 18th century. African slaves were brought to the island, and the characteristic Seychellois Creole language developed. Britain took possession of the islands in the early 19th century. The Seychelles became an independent republic in 1976 after two hundred years of European colonial rule. A socialist one-party state ruled the country from 1977 to 1993.
All the 115 islands of Seychelles are divided in to two islands, inner and the outer islands. Blessed with a tropical climate throughout the year, Seychelles is an anytime visit place, one can reach this place by air and through sea. The nonstop scheduled flights of Air Seychelles are available every time from France, Italy, Mauritius, Singapore and South Africa. One can also reach the island cruising through ship. Previously, Seychelles was not a developed area but today it is regarded as one of the most developed area with high standards of living.
The Seychelles Tourism Board is collaboration between the public and private sector. It tries their best to provide one of the best holidays in Seychelles to all the tourists and the vacationers who come here to spend their leisure time. Seychellois have a very rich culture. At all the social gatherings plenty of food and drinks are served to celebrate any particular occasion. The Creole cuisine mainly consists of fish, rice, meat, fruits and food crops.
When is the best time for a holiday in Seychelles?
This is a question We ask very often. And the answer really is an issue that has nothing to do with Seychelles at all. First, I must say, for a vacation in Seychelles there is no “best time” of year.
The peak season in Seychelles is December. This is the time visitors from Europe are fleeing their cold winters. But I believe for those people this is the absolute worst time to visit Seychelles
