Let’s Build A Trip!

 

Visit Prince William and Kate’s Honeymoon Hideaway, a remote country of secluded islands and some of the world’s best beaches

1,000 miles off the coast of East Africa, this idyllic Indian Ocean Republic consists of 115 granite and coral tropical islands offering the very best in privacy, location, beaches, accommodation, romantic honeymoons and ocean activities. No venomous creatures, tropical diseases (there is no malaria), cyclones, crime or poverty, combined with a large number of endemic species, make Seychelles a highly appealing destination. It’s no wonder Prince William and Kate planned their romantic honeymoon to North Island in the Seychelles.

SEYCHELLES ISLANDS AND BEACHES

Private Islands

North Island – The quintessential tropical island paradise is an exclusive private island home to one of the world’s most luxurious eco-lodges. It’s a perfect location for a romantic vacation or honeymoon. The ““Noah’s Ark” program on North Island created a perfectly pure and natural idyllic paradise with only indigenous species of flora and fauna on the island.

Denis Island – A 350-acre, exclusive private island owned by the Denis Island Lodge is a beautiful 5-star, twenty-five chalet lodge perfect for honeymooners.

Main Islands

Mahe Island – The gateway to the Seychelles is the largest of the inner islands and home to 70,000 residents (90% of Seychelles population) of African, Indian, Chinese and European ethnicity. It is also the seat of government, chief center of commerce and home to the capital city of Victoria.

Praslin Island – A small island with lush tropical greenery and boasting two spots that have been named among the ““world’s best beaches,” Praslin Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site known to visitors as ““tropical perfection.”

La Digue Island – A small and undeveloped island with one of the most dramatically beautiful beaches in the world.
