Seychelles and Mauritius
An island nation, the Seychelles is located to the northeast of Madagascar and about 1,600 km east of Kenya. There are 42 granitic islands, with the two largest being Mahé and Praslin. Mauritius can be found off the coast of Africa in the southwest Indian Ocean, about 900 kilometers east of Madagascar.
Recreational activities on both the Seychelles and Mauritius are quite varied, but revolve mostly around water sports, as the islands are surrounded with coral reef, providing plenty of relatively shallow and calm water. Activities such as deep sea fishing, windsurfing, water-skiing and sailing in yachts are available. The marine life around the islands, can be spectacular, with more than 1,000 species of fish having been recorded.
