Get away from it all in the Seychelles, an under-the-radar vacation spot off the East Coast of Africa long favored by the rich and famous. This archipelago sits in the Indian Ocean, about 900 miles off the eastern coast of Africa. The islands’ enduring appeal lies in their remoteness. It also doesn’t hurt that the beaches are full of sugary-soft sand, the water is crystal-clear, and the resorts are five-star. Six Senses Zil Pasyon is the sole resort perched on Félicité Island, a private isle that brims with tropical foliage and wildlife.
Visit the nearby island of Mahé for a day of hiking in the Morne Seychellois National Forest. Hike inward on the island via walking trails, or opt for an island perimeter trek around the mangroves.
Dine at this oceanfront Zil Pasyon restaurant, specializing in seafood dishes, including fresh catches from fishermen committed to sustainability practices. Chefs also use organic fresh produce grown in the on-site garden.
Embark on a guided scuba-diving excursion to explore the ruins of the Ennerdale, a British oil tanker that sunk in the 1970s. Today, the shipwreck brims with marine life, clearly visible thanks to the Seychelles’ extraordinarily clear waters.
Known as the “land of perpetual summer, the Seychelles enjoy pleasant weather year-round. If you prefer cooler weather, the trade winds blow through between May and September providing a bit of a cooldown and a nice breeze that’s perfect for sailing. If you prefer calmer waters, visit in March, April, October, or November when temperatures are comfortable, the wind is calm, and water is crystal-clear.
