Scattered in a lost corner of the Indian Ocean, once the haunt of Pirates and their treasure ships, lie 93 islands, among them Aldabra the Amirantes and the Seychelles. Legend and superstition abound in this isolated and forgotten British outpost. It has even been suggested that the Garden of Eden was there.
In the past year more people have visited these islands than ever before, some of them on adventurous luxury cruises. In July an international airport opens. Can the treasures of unspoiled beaches and unique wild life survive the new invasion, or must the Pearls of the Indian Ocean inevitably become just another playground?

The most famous statue in the world, dug up in a field in 1820. For over a century she's been the symbol of feminine perfection - this mutilated giantess with a figure measure 43-37-47.
