    The smallest and least populous of all African countries is spread over a vast marine region, with more than 1,000 km and 115 islands, between Kenya's coast and the Maldives. It consists of two groups: the inner islands, mostly granitic and grouped around the main islands, are Seychelles cultural, political and tourist center; the outer islands, corallines, are mostly uninhabited havens, but some have extremely upmarket eco-resorts: a privilege of few.
    The three main and best-known islands for the general public, Mahé, Praslin and La Digue, are totally different from each other and fascinating. It is practically impossible to miss them: not only for the many attractions and impeccable hotel structure, but they are also access points to the other inner islands. The recommended minimum stay to properly visit the main islands is one week, but longer stays are rewarded with special rates and better possibilities for combining the islands.
    Seychelles has two World Heritage Sites: the Vallée de Mai in Praslin, where the evocative Coco-de-Mer grows, and the Aldabra Atoll, one of the largest coral atolls in the world. Combining Seychelles' activities and attractions with its irresistible beaches is a real challenge: all the time in the world is short on the archipelago, so expert advice makes all difference when planning. After all, visiting the other world is not for everyone.
