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 IntendancePetite 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 CousinCurieuse & 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.

Hotels range from modest to ultra-luxury, with something for everyone, Seychelles is not your average tropical beach honeymoon.

So, is Seychelles really good for a honeymoon? Absolutely! A honeymoon in Seychelles is perfect for an island-hopping adventure with magnificent beaches.

Best Time To Visit

Seychelles is warm all year round, but it has two trade winds (monsoons) that affect the weather.

May to October are the driest months.

The best time to honeymoon in Seychelles is during the calmer times of April to May and September to October.

Seychelles can be rainy when the northwest trade winds arrive from November to March.

how long to stay

We recommend at least 10 nights for a honeymoon in Seychelles.

However, the ideal duration of a honeymoon in the Seychelles can vary depending on personal preferences and budget.

At least 10 nights will allow you some time to recover from jet lag and have time for multiple islands, activities and relaxing.
