Trip Overview

FIRST PAYMENT NOT DUE UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2020!

Join us as we bring in Labor day in Seychelles!  The Seychelles, an archipelago of 115 islands off the east coast of Africa, are know for being extremely beautiful - and extremely expensive. 

 

Seychelles is home of the best beaches in the WORLD!  The beaches in Seychelles have so much to offer. The sand is super fine and blindingly white. The water is warm and every shade of blue imaginable. The best part, even the most popular beaches are never what most people would consider crowded.  

Most of the beaches here are totally untouched and many are naturally surrounded by palm trees and lush vegetation to provide some welcome shade throughout the day.  Seychelles offers the best beach getaway that one could ever experience.
