Seychelles consists of 115 coral and granite islands scattered in the middle of the Indian Ocean, between The Equator and Comoro Islands.
Tourism is vital to the economy of the Seychelles; bringing in three quarters of the foreign exchange and making up more than half of the gross domestic product.
Although you will enjoy the cool juices of locally grown tropical fruits, the rice with your fish has to be imported.
Arab traders were probably the earliest visitors to the islands; long before the Portuguese sailed by in 1502.
France claimed the uninhabited islands some two hundred and fifty years later, and moved in with their slaves in the late 1700's.
The expanding power of Great Britain annexed the Seychelles in 1814; controlling them from Mauritius for most of the century.
Independence was achieved on June 29th, 1976.
