What to do in Seychelles: The Only Country in the World with a Constitution that Protects Giant Tortoises

Seychelles is a paradisiacal archipelago in the Indian Ocean, off the east coast of Africa. It is known for its white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and impressive biodiversity.


Let's start our trip in Victoria, the smallest capital in the world, full of charm and history. Next, you can't miss visiting the Sainte Anne National Marine Park, the first marine protected area in the Indian Ocean. The island of Praslin, with the incredible Vallée de Mai Natural Reserve, is another mandatory stop. The island of La Digue, with the famous Anse Source D'Argent beach, and Bird Island, with its countless species of birds, complete our top five places to visit.

The official language of Seychelles is Seychellois Creole, but English and French are also spoken, so you can rest assured! The local currency is the Seychellois rupee and Brazilians do not need a visa for visits of up to 90 days.

Seychelles has a small but diversified economy, with a strong presence of tourism, fishing and agriculture. The country also strives to preserve its biodiversity, with strict conservation policies.


And now, let's get to the curiosity we promised! Did you know that Seychelles is the only country in the world with a constitution that protects giant tortoises? That's right! This unusual fact reflects Seychelles' commitment to preserving its rich biodiversity.
