Sun-seeking Aussies should head to the Seychelles

With winter setting in down under, many sun-seeking Aussies will be looking to head abroad in order to top up their tans.

Europe is normally a safe bet between May and September, with countries like Spain, Greece and Cyprus offering superb beach holiday options and with the eurozone currently struggling, Aussies will find tremendous value for money.

However, in order to guarantee sunshine regardless of the time of year, it may be wise to head to the Seychelles.

Situated on the Equator, the beautiful islands are baking hot all year round and minister of tourism and culture Alain St Ange believes it is a fantastic place to visit.

He wants to see all destinations in the Indian Ocean promote themselves as a unit, rather than separate islands – much in the same way that the Caribbean does.

Aussies will also see their overseas travel money stretch a fair way when they head to this part of the world, as one dollar currently gets you 14.32 Seychelles rupees.
