Discovery of the most beautiful islands in pairs
Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands in the middle of the Indian Ocean. They are called green islands: nature is lush. There are coral reefs, many sandy beaches that burn in the sea, crystal clear water that shelters rare specimens, and many romantic corners for lovers. Couples looking for adventure will be satisfied.
Your stay as a couple can start with a trip to Praslin Island. On horseback or foot, you will discover the Dutch plain in the heart of the island to pass the coastal mangroves of Mahé. This path leads to the highest point of the Seychellois Morne National Park.
Praslin, the second largest island in the archipelago, is also home to the Mai Valley. The valley has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983 because of its undeniable beauty. The clear waterfalls lined with hundred-year-old palm trees and bordered by winding paths form an unrivalled romantic setting.
The coastal route will liven up your stay in this sparsely populated environment. Your trip will only be complete by crossing La Digue, an island with peaceful beaches. Then continue on Anse-Takamaka, another island scattered with granite rocks on the west coast. To the south, the isolated beach Anse Bonnet Carré and the calm and shallow waters are ideal for swimming. Enough to multiply the sweets…
Bird Iceland and Mai Valley are a must for nature-lovers or adventurers in the heart of the jungle. These are the perfect places to satisfy your search for thrills.
Seychelles‘ Bird Island is located about 100 kilometres northwest of Mahé. The coral island is as mysterious as it is magnificent, ideal for long-term visits. Guests can stay in a lodge or bungalow to continue their morning tours. The coconut trees will bury you at night if the sea waves pamper you.
By crossing Curieuse Island, just a few kilometres from Praslin, you can observe the mountain refuge of giant turtles. And from there, only about 20 minutes away, is the ocean.
Still, by boat, you can cross and go to Laraire Bay. Here, as far as the eye can see, the clear water and the nest of parrots will rise to the challenge of a unique journey.
You can also grind your boat to Anse St José south of the island. Curieuse used to house a quarantine station for lepers. Today, only a few ancient ruins and the doctors’ house remain. This house is a French colonial building dating back to 1870. It has become a small museum and a rich cultural centre for visitors.
Soak up Seychellois culture
Seychelles is sparsely populated, with only 88,000 inhabitants. But incredibly, this population is very friendly and warm. Benevolence and kindness go hand in hand with their contagious smile. Here, English is spoken, especially Creole, but the official language is French. This will facilitate communication.
The Seychellois population results from a melting pot for the vast majority. It is of African, European, Indian or Chinese origin, but there are also French and Arab minority groups. This cultural mix particularises the encounter and enriches the culture, different on each island.
For a change of scenery, you can visit the Arul Mihu Navasakthi Vinayagar Temple, one of Seychelles’ flagship monuments, and ask for a blessing for your wedding. This small colourful temple is located near the market. Visits are free and easy to access. It bears witness to the Hindu culture in which the country is immersed.
Gastronomic honeymoon in Seychelles
In the heart of Victoria’s market, the smell and freshness of exotic fruits, fresh vegetables, and fish from the sea will enthral your senses and taste buds.
These will be in your dishes every day, from morning to evening. This will be the best part of the trip because you will taste one of the most appreciated Seychellois wonders. Between European dishes and traditional meals, your pallet will only be rewarded after romantic sea walks.
This is how your sunrise, poolside dinner or romantic beach dinner will be “exotically perfect” and gourmet.
Private cruise by Catamaran
The discovery of the islands is even more special on board a catamaran. It is a luxurious boat that combines comfort and well-being. Yes, a catamaran cruise will allow you to go from island to island while enjoying swimming at each stop and visits at each stop.
Your skipper will map out specific routes and take you to the end of your adventure as a couple. If you are far from an island, leisure and relaxation activities will help you to kill time. You can relax or sunbathe quietly in the sun as the waves go.
The catamaran is also an equipped boat with a well-trained crew. All will be at your disposal and help you have a worthy wedding. Spacious rooms are available upon reservation or personal request. The quietest corners can be booked, and you can choose routes for two.
