Why go? Visit the Seychelles for winter sun and average temperatures of 28°C, quite a few of the world's most photographed beaches, giant Aldabra Turtles and heavenly Vallée de Mai - said to be the original Garden of Eden. Kids will love island hopping, jungle ziplining, cycling instead of driving and some of the most spellbinding pirate history in the Indian Ocean. The Seychelles is also famous for magnificent walking trails and it's an iconic winter holiday destination for diving and snorkelling.
