Discover the most beautiful islands for two
The 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 so many romantic spots for lovers. Couples looking for adventure will be satisfied.
Your stay for two can start with a trip to Praslin Island. On horseback or on foot, you will discover the Dutch plain in the heart of the island and pass through the coastal mangroves of Mahé. This path leads to the highest point of the Morne Seychellois National Park.
Praslin, the second largest island in the archipelago, is also home to the May Valley. This valley has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1983 because of its undeniable beauty. The clear waterfalls lined with century-old palm trees and bordered by winding paths form an unrivalled romantic setting.
In this sparsely populated environment, the coastal route will liven up your stay. Your trip will only be complete by crossing La Digue, an island full of peaceful beaches. Then continue to Anse-Takamaka, another island dotted with granite rocks on the west coast. To the south, the secluded Anse Bonnet Carré beach and the calm, shallow waters are ideal for swimming. Enough to multiply the sweets….
Whether you are a nature lover or looking for adventure in the heart of the jungle, it is essential to visit Bird Island and the May Valley. These are the perfect places to indulge your search for thrills.
Seychelles Bird Island is located about 100 kilometres northwest of Mahé. The coral island is as mysterious as it is beautiful, ideal for extended visits. You can stay in a lodge or bungalow to be able to continue the visits in the morning. Coconut trees will bury you at night if the marine waves pamper you.
While crossing Curieuse Island, only a few kilometres from Praslin, you can observe the mountainous refuge of the giant turtles. And from there, only about twenty minutes away, there is the ocean.
Still by boat, you can cross and go to Baie Laraire. Here, the clear water, and the niche of parrots as far as the eye can see, will take up the challenge of a unique journey.

For a change of scenery, you can visit the Arul Mihu Navasakthi Vinayagar Temple, one of Seychelles’ landmark monuments, and ask for a blessing for your wedding. This small and colourful temple is located on the market side. Visits are free and access is easy. It is a testimony to the Hindu culture in which the country is immersed.
