The honeymoon in the stunning Seychelles islands is a dream coming true. This oasis in the Indian Ocean is small coral isles, located at least a thousand miles away from any other trace of civilization. The island of Mahé is the exciting center of the archipelago. Mahé has dramatic tropical scenery with lush vegetation against a background of towering mountains. Tall palm trees against sparkling deep blue seas fringe the beaches. You may relish strolling over the soft, powdery sand, lying in the sun and tasting Creole cuisine, which is a real gustatory salvation. If you would like to have some energetic moments, you may dive or snorkel in the crystalline waters and explore a fabulous world of sea life and observe turtles, reef fish and brilliantly hued corals.
The nightlife, the casinos, nightclubs, the wandering minstrels and beach bands are all luring the tourists to this paradise. And all you should do is just enjoy yourself, as this is the honeymoon of a lifetime!
