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.
