Seychelles Honeymoon Getaway
Unspoiled, Pristine and Secluded Romantic Island Honeymoon Vacations
There are few people who have heard of a Seychelles Honeymoon or the Seychelles Islands. The remote archipelago off the east coast of Africa sits a little more under 1,000 miles to the east of mainland Africa and to the northeast of the large island of Madagascar.
Reaching the main island of this collection of 115 is best done by plane, though there are numerous cruise lines that have this tropical destination on their lists of ports of call. Regardless of how you arrive, arrive you should. There are few places like this for a couple who want a truly unique Seychelles Honeymoon.
Its no wonder that Prince William and Kate Middleton stayed for 10 days in a luxury resort on a privately owned island in the Seychelles. The Duke and the Duchess honeymoon accommodation is costs upto 72,000 dollars a night.
Whether you rent the entire island or simply stay in one of the luxury villas in the Indian Ocean, a Seychelles honeymoon is truly the perfect romantic secret hideaway.
The islands are made up of two types, the granite which have higher geography, and the lower laying coral islands. The “inner islands” are all 41 granite islands and two of the coral, while the remaining 72 coral islands are the “outer islands”.
Of the inner islands, the three largest are Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. These three are the most populated and developed, with Mahé being home to the international airport and capital.
It is also the central hub for transportation to the other islands, as well as the location where the vast majority of the population lives. One thing you should look at while you are on Mahé is shopping.
There are cooks around the world who create magical dishes with the vanilla grown here, so you can get a great deal on fresh vanilla at the duty free shops. If cooking is not your forte, then relax at any one of the pristine beaches, with a little snorkeling and swimming the clear waters and coral reefs.
That way you can build up a real hunger to indulge at one of the 90 restaurants available.
The flavors of the island are defiantly French influenced with a strong Creole thread throughout. The seafood is amazing and should be sampled at every chance. It will add spice on your Seychelles Honeymoon.
