Seychelles records highest tourism arrivals

(eTN) – The Seychelles recorded their best ever tourism arrival and revenue year in 2010, when they managed to add over 17,000 extra arrivals to their previous record in 2009.

Leading nationalities of visitors were once again Italy and France, followed by Germany and the UK, although it was learned that German tourists stayed the longest in the islands, averaging over 13 days.

The total number of visitor arrivals was pegged at 174,529. The restructuring of the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) along with public-private partnerships has paid off well for the archipelago’s tourism sector. The STB had forecast a figure of 170,000 arrivals for 2010.
