SOME FACTS ABOUT SEYCHELLES: 

The Seychelles Archipelago consists of one hundred and fifteen islands in the Indian Ocean.
Mahé is the largest island and home to ninety percent of the population. The island of Cerf, Mahe´s closest neighbor, is part of the St. Anne Marien Park. 
Praslin is the second largest island on the Seychelles Archipelago. The Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve, on the island of Praslin, is a World Heritage site. The famous coco-de-mer, the world´s largest seed, can be found growing in the Reserve. 
Silhouette is the third largest island of the Seychelles.
La Digue, the Seychelles fourth largest island, is famous for interesting shaped granite boulders on its beaches. 
Aldabra Atoll, a World Heritage site, is part of the Outer Island group. Aldabra is the largest raised atoll in the world.

The Portuguese were the first Europeans to visit the Seychelles (1501 and 1502).  French colonists settled on the island of St. Anne Island in 1770. The Seychelles Archipelago was named after Jean Moreau de Sechelles, a french finance minister of the mid eighteenth century.
The french and the british vied for possession of the Seychelles. In 1814 the islands of the Seychelles (along with Mauritius) were ceded to Britain under the terms of the Treaty of Paris. Following the Treaty  of Paris, the islands of the Seychelles were administered from Mauritius. 
The Seychelles became a separate British Colony in 1903. 
Independence was achieved in 1976 and the Seychelles became the Republic of Seychelles.
