A honeymoon in Seychelles is a beach trip like no other. It is one of our all-time top honeymoon destinations, particularly for an island hopping honeymoon. With abundant beauty and the planet’s best beaches — turquoise water teeming with an array of beautiful marine life, ancient rainforests of unique flora and fauna with enormous granite boulders – you won’t regret choosing this heavenly destination for your honeymoon.

Do this archipelago off the coast of Africa justice and spend some time on more than one island. Most couples will start their honeymoon in Seychelles on the main island, Mahé. The capital Victoria is tiny and you will no doubt drive through it when exploring this stunning island. Visit the colourful Sir Selwyn- Selwyn Clarke market. Hire a car and get exploring. Anse Intendance, Petite Anse and Anse Takamaka are just some of the incredible beaches you must visit. Go snorkelling in Saint-Anne Marine National Park. Beau Vallon beach is the centre for water sports and is perfect if you want to dine outside of your hotel.

Praslin island is only an hour away by ferry (or 20 minutes by plane) and is an essential inclusion on any honeymoon in Seychelles itinerary. This island is even more laid back than its neighbour, with tiny coves with nobody around to some busier but beautiful world-class beaches like Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette. Spend a morning on the gentle trails of the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve. Take a day trip to Cousin, Curieuse & St Pierre Islands for uninhabited beaches, giant turtles and abundant marine life.

La Digue, with one of the world’s most photographed beaches, Anse Source d’Argent is worth at least a day trip where you can hire bikes and explore this tiny paradise. There are many beautiful private islands too – get truly off the beaten track in your own luxury castaway experience.

Many islands are untouched by modern tourism, allowing for incredible biodiversity, including turtles spotting and visiting giant tortoises. Hikers will be in heaven with multiple trails on all the islands. While many couples will add on Seychelles to an Africa safari honeymoon to create an epic multi-destination honeymoon, as you can see there is so much to do in Seychelles that you could easily spend your whole honeymoon here. Hotels range from modest to ultra-luxury resorts, with something for everyone, Seychelles is not your average tropical beach honeymoon!

You can combine Seychelles with a safari in East Africa gems like Tanzania and Kenya. Go gorilla trekking in Rwanda or Uganda and add on wow honeymoon resort in Seychelles. Explore some of our favourite cities like Istanbul and Abu Dhabi. For the perfect city and beach honeymoon combination, add Dubai to your honeymoon in Seychelles.
