The Republic of the Seychelles is a perfect alternative to more well known (and crowded) tropical islands. Deserted beaches, exotic wildlife, and endless outdoor activities make a perfect fit for any type of traveler.

Agoda.com, Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq:PCLN), is providing amazing hotel deals in the beautiful Seychelles Islands, a versatile and beautiful destination with options perfect destination for singles, families, and honeymooners alike.
Roughly halfway between the Maldives and Africa, Seychelles were a convenient stopover for African and Arab traders for centuries. In 1810, Britain added the 150+ islands to its overseas territories. In 1976, the Republic of the Seychelles declared independence.
In a vast region of warm ocean and tropical breezes, tourists looking for an idyllic tropical island getaway have several choices. Most offer stunning scenery, pristine beaches, blue water, and blazing sunsets.
Seychelles is a notable standout for several reasons.
First and foremost, there are no visa requirements on Seychelles, which means that visitors of any nationality can visit without going through expensive and time-consuming visa procedures. In addition, the islands are refreshingly – almost alarmingly – free of the tourist hordes that plague the other island chains. Most of the hundreds of beaches available to the public are in pristine condition and are quite often nearly empty. Isolated jog along the beach? Family sandcastle competition? Romantic honeymoon pictures? All available on Seychelles.
In addition to the magnificent beaches, Seychelles offers a nearly limitless number of outdoor activities, from golf and tennis to horseback riding and mountain biking. World-class scuba and snorkeling spots are everywhere, as are fishing and windsurfing. The islands’ heavy focus on ecotourism and environmental conservation is also a boon for visitors, who can enjoy abundant plant and animal life. Many rare species such as the Coco de Mer palm, the jellyfish tree, giant tortoises, and the huge, scary-looking coconut crab (which thankfully, is largely vegetarian) can be found on the Island.
