Seychelles: an incomparable nature, breath-taking lagoons and endless sand beaches is the indication of uniqueness
Nowadays the Seychelles are no longer an unknown holiday paradise. Almost everyone has heard of the islands as they are often the host of many advertisements such as 'Bacardi Rum' and 'Bounty Riegel'. Nevertheless, the almost untouched islands which lie south of the equator are still a destination which many people seek to travel to. Palms wavering in the wind, silver glittering shores consisting of crystal-clear, turquoise water are washed around and (almost) always, the sun shines.
