Item No. 2092
This Beachcomber design captures the magic of the tropical Seychelle islands.
The Seychelles were uninhabited throughout most of history.
The earliest recorded landing occurred in January 1609
by Britain's East India Company ship the Ascension.
Since the islands had no indigenous population, the Seychelles became a fusion of African, Asian and European ancestry into a modern creole culture.
This blend is revealed in Seychellois food, incorporating French, Chinese, Indian and African cuisine.
French and English are official languages with Seychellois Creole being spoken by the islanders.
The music of the Seychelles is equally diverse with African rhythms, European folk, French pop Mauritian, Polynesian, Indian and Greek Arcadian.
If you enjoy tropical beauty and a diverse cultural experience the Seychelles are hard to beat.
