The archipelago consists of four islands – Mahes, Praslens, Silhouette and La Digas. These islands are not volcanic and non-coral origin, but are composed of granite (which is why they are often called a micro-vegetation). Mount Mahe Island is mountainous (915 m high, Mount Seychelles).

In the islands there is a limited tourist flow (~ 100,000 per year), so there are never many people. With that, and high prices for tourists, they have to earn from one traveler as coming from elsewhere. Both big taxes for businessmen apply, since the island is practically exclusively from tourism. Everything for local is not expensive.

Food in shops, fuels – prices are very similar to in Lithuania. However, restaurants, diving, access to national parks, etc. are both expensive. All speakers of the island speak English, French. Their local language is Creole. The locals are a bit lazy, although the work on the island is. So entrepreneurs often employ people from the Philippines, India or other countries – they are harder.
