These islands are accessible only to those who can afford to stay at the resorts. Unsurprisingly, rack rates for most are sky-high, but look out for internet deals. It's also worth booking through a travel agent, which should get significant discounts.

The most affordable resorts include the Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa and La Belle Tortue on Silhouette, as well as Bird Island Lodge on Bird Island.
