An archipelago of 155 islands, of which only a small percentage are inhabited. Positioned almost directly between Africa and India, years ago the tourist board used a slogan “a 1000 miles from anywhere” which nicely summed up the location. A population of just over 80,000, of which the majority live on the main island of Mahé, the location of the capital, Victoria, and the international airport.

There are no direct flights to the Seychelles from the UK, so you travel via Dubai and Doha ( Qatar ) with change of flight. Total flying time including transit will be approx. 15 hours.
