Seychelles… for Robinson Crusoe
If you want to take your family to a group of islands akin to a lost Eden, the Seychelles is the place to go. Here there are primeval forests, jaw-droppingly beautiful beaches, waters teeming with luminous fish and coral, rare birds and turtles. The emphasis is on ecotourism, which comes with a hefty price tag – but it’s well worth it.
North Island has just undergone a three-month rehabilitation of its natural habitat and, with only 11 villas here, it is the epitome of barefoot luxury. Think Robinson Crusoe with a spa. Children can work with conservationists and learn about local marine life. Ultimate Safaris offers seven nights for a family of four at North Island from £29,650, including return flights on Air Seychelles and helicopter transfers.
