In midst of the big turquoise ocean lies a small tropical island known as the star and key of the Indian Ocean. Mauritius is set in a panoramic location. What intensifies its beauty is the arresting blend of its people and cultures.

Honeymoon in Seychelles

The Seychelles archipelago consists of many islands that may be sorted into the most private to the least private one. Large islands like Mahé in Seychelles are quite reserved for couples who prefer a crowded and noisy environment. They may go for shopping while exploring the attractive spots on the island. While there, it is recommended to experience the Seychellois nightlife: beach parties, clubs and roaming through the main cities.

Couples desiring more privacy and comfort are recommended to book their stay at the resorts in Praslin or La Digue which are  in secluded but safe islets.

On such islands, couples are offered an individual villa with a private pool respectively. All the villas stand facing the azure ocean. Couples are free to spend time with each other on their undisturbed part of the beach.

They may set themselves a romantic dinner on the beach.
