Abstract

Description: Palm-fringed silvery sands, turquoise seas, misty mountain peaks and coral reefs coupled with tropical sun, starry skies and delightful people, the Seychelles are an idyllic escape for discerning travellers. With plants and animals historically linked to Africa, Madagascar and Asia, and marine life native to the tropical Indo-Pacific region Seychelles is a haven for those interested in natural history. The guide gives fascinating coverage of the islands' biodiversity, from mangroves, turtles and birds to nature reserves and conservation projects. Seychelles' many secrets are also uncovered from coco de mer palm forests, picturesque La Digue and island bird sanctuaries to local markets and Creole cuisine. Famed for their "get away from it all" appeal for travellers of all budgets, the Seychelles are also a haven for those interested in natural history. This comprehensive Bradt guide contains a detailed introduction to the island’s ecosystem, from coastal life and coral reefs to nature reserves and conservation projects. The authors provide a full range of options for watersports enthusiasts and there is a special section for cruise-ship passengers.
