Third largest in the Seychelles group, Silhouette still only has a population of 135, most of them living in La Passe, and there to help look after the guests on the island's resort.

This island has its share of natural loveliness, as do all the Seychelles, this time, in addition to the powder soft, white beaches, it's manifest in a couple of mountain peaks – at more than 600metres, they're impressive by island standards - which help create the conditions to support a lush, primeval forest, home to some very rare creatures. Off shore it's no less beautiful and there are more unusual and rare creatures living amongst the corals.

The peaks, forest, and total lack of cars make this a tropical island option for walkers, as well as nature lovers.
