Visit the North Island in Seychelles for an enthralling experience!

Seychelles is a quaint little group of islands located in the Indian Ocean off the Somali sea. Seychelles can be described as the perfect Paradise on earth with turquoise blue waters and beautiful lagoons surrounding the shores of the island. It is largely untouched and is one of the least populated countries in the continent of Africa making it a scenic spot for tourists alike. Even though famous islands like Madagascar, the Maldives, and Mauritius exist in the vicinity, Seychelles per se has not received much attention from tourists who visit the other islands. The capital city of Seychelles is Victoria and can be visited within a day of exploration. Be rest assured that the islands of Seychelles are your true calling if you prefer a laid back, secluded time during your vacation. Munch on some breadfruit which is a popular snack in the Seychelles and bask under the sun on the beautiful beaches. The North Island in Seychelles is one such must-explore zone. Read on to find out more!

History of the North Island

The North Island is a group of little islands in the inner lagoons and it is considered to be the first one where explorers discovered that a region like Seychelles existed. Explorers of the past and members of the British East India company have also reported sightings of giant tortoises which was said to roam freely around the island. It gained fame in the world as an emerging tourist destination after the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Seychelles for their honeymoon post their royal wedding in 2011.

How to reach Seychelles

You will have to take a flight to Mahe, which is the largest island in Seychelles. Following your arrival in Mahe International Airport you will be transferred to your respective island resort via a helicopter ride which lasts for about 20 to 30 minutes. In most cases the transfer from an airport to the island resort will be via a speedboat or a seaplane especially when it comes to islands on the Maldives. But in Seychelles, the practice is to take a helicopter ride into the island and this is done in a bid to preserve the aquatic ecosystem surrounding the island.
