The islands of Seychelles are the world's oldest islands in the Indian Ocean and consisting of mainly granite islands, as opposed to volcanic or coral islands.

Mahé
Mahé is the Seychelles' main island - just over 28 kilometers long and eight kilometers wide. Here live almost 90 percent of the total population.

Go hiking in the highlands and on the beautiful shores, where you get panoramic views that surpasses your wildest dreams.

On the North East Coast, Victoria, is one of the world's smallest capitals. Here are cozy markets, museums, a mosque, a temple and a lovely botanical garden.
