The Seychelles archipelago consists of 116 islands and has the smallest capital in the world, Victoria. The capital island can be walked in under a day. The country was first made independent from Britain in 1976 and became fully democratic in 1993. Seychelles is essentially a country of immigrants and there have only been settlements on the islands for the last 250 years.
Eden Island, man-made though by first time visitors often mistaken as a ‘real island’ continues to be the success story it was intended to become, when the idea was first launched a few years ago.
Now largely complete, with shopping, offices, apartments, condominiums, residences and of course the all important marina, the island today has 580 completed residential units available, of which some 460 have now been sold.
