This coming weekend’s SUBIOS, the Seychelles Annual Festival of the Sea, will give particular attention to children. Elsia Grandcourt, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, the organizers of the annual festival, dedicated the day of Saturday, November 24 to children’s activities.
Seychelles prides itself as being the leader in environment protection. The President of the Republic, Mr. James Michel, has personally led the campaign to have over 50% of the island’s total land area declared protected national parks. The islands pristine environment remains also one of the Seychelles’ key USP, its unique selling points. “This is why we are inviting our young people to join us to appreciate the underwater gardens of Seychelles. Diving in the turquoise blue waters of Seychelles is simply swimming in an aquarium. Our seas are clean, clear, and warm 365 days of the year only because we have, as a people, cared for our environment; today our efforts have got the world at large to stand up and take notice of Seychelles. Our young people must now see how that natural asset of ours is seen by some of the best underwater photographers and divers,” Elsia Grandcourt said.
The Seychelles Tourism Board says that the events they organize open the door for the visitors to the islands to meet and share popular mass activities with the Seychellois.
Seychelles remains a very safe tourist destination, and there can be no better place for popular mass activities for tourists to enjoy and party alongside the local population.
Seychelles is a founding member of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP).
