Seychelles competed against other island destinations in the world, namely Zanzibar, Phuket in Thailand, Santorini, and the Maldives, and ranked in with a high reader score of 91.47.

The 2023 Travel + Leisure World’s Best Awards recognize the greatest travel experiences and destinations, with 98% of its readership planning an upcoming leisure trip and more than 80% planning to visit a new destination.  

Island destinations are rated by readers on the following characteristics: natural attractions/beaches, activities/sights, restaurants/food, people/friendliness, value, and as an optional criterion, romantic appeal. For each characteristic, respondents are asked to rate a candidate on a five-point scale of excellence.

Commenting on the honor, the Director for Africa and the Americas for Tourism Seychelles, David Germain, said, “Seychelles has received this award for 5 consecutive times and achieving the distinction of 25 Favorite Islands in the world once again, will probably set a record.”

“It is a great honor for Seychelles to be selected once again, recognizing that our archipelago has much to offer in terms of world-class island experiences.”
