Lying off the east coast of Africa — just south of the Equator — are the striking, magically exotic islands of the Seychelles. Praslin and La Digue are located near the main island of Mahé in the “inner islands.” The outer islands are more remote but no less beautiful.
In addition to great sailing, Mauritius is renown for its clear turquoise waters that make it a destination for divers and snorkelers alike.
To the north lies exotic Thailand, one of the most beautiful coastal areas on the planet. You can explore hundreds of islands in the Sea of Andaman with their sandy beaches and coves ringed with coconut palms, beautiful coral reefs and stunning cliffs.
