VICTORIA, Seychelles — The Seychelles feels like the furthest from anywhere you have ever been: Thousands of miles of open Indian Ocean water stretch in every direction. That isolation is partly why the 115-island archipelago has become such a popular holiday destination.
More than 900 miles off the coast of East Africa, the Seychelles is known for its paradise beaches, crystal waters, coral reefs and soaring granite peaks. The islands attract honeymooners and wealthy tourists to the many five-star resorts spread across the archipelago.
