There are flying foxes

With a fox-like appearance the Seychelles fruit bat or Seychelles flying fox is found on the granitic islands of Seychelles. It is more common on Silhouette, the third largest granitic islands. No need to worry about getting close to them, they only feed on fruits.

See the world's biggest nut

The coco de mer -- the biggest nut in the world -- grows naturally on the second largest island of Praslin in the Vallee de Mai which is still a pristine forest and one of the Seychelles' world heritage sites.

The second largest atoll in the world

The Aldabra atoll is one of the world's most wild and remote regions where you can see huge tortoises and black-tipped sharks. And you can have a dip in the lagoon so large it can fit the whole of the main island Mahe. As an added bonus it's another Seychelles' world heritage site.

A jellyfish on land? No! Simply a plant

As its name indicates, the plant has fruits with jellyfish-like shapes. It can be found at four locations on Mahe, the main island and all going uphill -- Bernica, Mont Sebert, Mont Copolia and Mont Jasmin. Are you up for a climb?

Gazing at the sunset

Tired of the hustle and bustle of your daily life? Well, relax while watching the sunset possible all year round as long as the weather is fine. The best place to do it is in the north of Mahe, the main island, and in a few spots on the other islands. The popular beach of Beau Vallon gives you a vantage point -- plus there are various tourism establishments in the vicinity where you can quench your thirst afterwards.
