Vacation destinations are definitely becoming the means by which people and their families are starting to spend their holidays. And if you’ve ever wanted to travel to Seychelles, then now is the perfect time to do so. With the SUBIOS 2014 festival, there will be even more events and activities for people to become involved in.
The Seychelles Festival of the Sea is an annual film and image festival that is entirely focused on being underwater. It has a rich history, having been held for the past twenty-five years and has been showing no signs of stopping. The entirety of the day is involved with snorkelling events and diving activities that are fun for the whole family. Underwater activities typically take place throughout the day, and also include free programmes and slide shows that are presented by some of the most renowned guest speakers from all over the world.
This marine-based event even comes complete with film and photograph contests that many of our locals and foreign guests have taken part in. There are many prizes to be won in a variety of categories, including “Best Image”, “Best Video”, “Best Local Video”, and “Best Image of Seychelles”, just to name a few. These events and activities not only speak of the importance of the marine world and the part it plays in the environment of Seychelles, but it also helps to spread that message to the rest of the world.
The Seychelles Festival of the Sea is much more than a film and image festival, but there’s also the celebration of the wonderful dishes that are created from the marine-based environment. With fresh cuisine that has been harvested fresh from underwater sources, chefs battle it out to see who can create the most unique seafood dish that brings together all of the rich flavours that the sea has to provide. Awards are presented at the end of this cooking competition, with the winner getting bragging rights as well to carry with him for the rest of the year. It isn’t a real vacation at Seychelles until you’ve had a taste for their flavourful cuisine and dishes.
The SUBIOS 2014 is slated to be one of the biggest tourism events of the year, so it’s important that you don’t miss out on this annual event. SUBIOS 2104 is slated to be held at the Eden Blue Hotel on Eden Island on November 21, but the activities will be spread across the island and will be held by other hotels as well, including the Four Seasons Resort and the Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort and Spa. Come and explore the depths of Seychelles’ seas and become involved in the underwater environment and how much it enriches the lives of the people that live here.
