Before Flying to Seychelles
Seychelles is located in Africa, northeast of Madagascar.

Experience an Unforgettable Honeymoon in Seychelles
Here are some of the places and activities you and your significant other can do on your honeymoon or trip to Seychelles to make the vacation an unforgettable experience:
Although fishing does not sound very romantic, but angling in Seychelles is different. If you visit the inner islands surrounding La Digue, Mahi, and Praslin—you and your new spouse will enjoy fishing as if you were married for years! It is a fun activity where you can enjoy laughing, teamwork, and catching fish! There are places where beginners can learn angling and sites for the more experienced anglers can lurk!
Sailing in Seychelles with your new spouse is probably the most romantic thing you can experience. But, instead of locking yourself up in hotels in Seychelles, this activity can definitely take your romantic trip on an entirely different level. Sailing away in the sunset, eating good food, sharing conversations, and kissing as the sun sets can make your bond last forever as a couple when you look back on the experience. But make sure you enjoy every moment as you sail and go to the best spots for snorkeling, kayaking, and other enjoyable couple activities.
If there is one activity that couples enjoy the most, that is probably having an exquisite romantic meal. Enjoy island cuisine, aphrodisiacs, and sipping your favorite cocktails! And just like any other island experience, it wouldn’t be complete without drinking coconut juice straight from the shell—giving you authentic island vibes with your loved one!
If there is one thing to spice up the relationship as early as the honeymoon phase—that is experiencing new things together. Seychelles has tons of adventure activities, such as zip-lining, snorkeling, kayaking, rock climbing, hiking, exploring the jungles, cliff diving, and many more! These activities may pump your adrenaline, but it is definitely fun to experience with the person you will spend the rest of your life with.
Seychelles isn’t just one island, and it is a collection of islands—kind of like an archipelago, if you will. So you and your significant other can enjoy island hopping to look at different views, try various activities, or just soak in the sun and enjoy being in each other’s arms before going back to work and your regular lives. Every island offers a different type of paradise, and it is worth visiting—especially if you enjoy different views!
