Picture powder-white beaches, cerulean waters and lush hills; with 115 Indian Ocean islands on which to be cast away in style, romantic Seychelles holidays transform daydreams into reality.
Seychelles is famous for being one of the most romantic destinations on the planet, thanks mostly to the archipelago’s paradisiacal beauty and unsurpassed luxury (think glimmering and secluded white sand beaches, jewel-blue waters and ultra-luxe resorts).
“If my love were an ocean, there would be no more land.”

Sure, the handful of 115 Indian Ocean islands that are open to tourism make a good argument for family travel, but really, Seychelles was made for lovers.
Beach, please. It’s impossible to think of Seychelles without imagining secluded beaches on castaway islands. In fact, several of Seychelles’ beaches have been named among the world’s best: romantic Anse Source d’Argent and its fanciful rock formations, Anse Réunion, and the long and popular Beau Vallon.
Top tip: Give your Instagram a shot of island envy with snaps of Anse Lazio, one of the world’s most photographed beaches.
Seychelles is island-hopping heaven. Drift from island to island to experience the archipelago’s diverse geography of granitic landscapes and primeval jungles. The two main islands of Mahe and Praslin go hand-in-hand and boast some of Seychelles’ most famous beaches and stunning landscapes.
Top tip: If you can, head to the outer coralline islands to take your pick of Robinson Crusoe romance at its best.
While a giant tortoise doesn’t immediately conjure images of romance, having your photo taken with one while on holiday in Seychelles is a rite of passage. The largest groups of these gentle giants live on the outer coralline islands such as Denis. However, you can also spot them Praslin, and the neighbouring island of La Digue.
La Digue island, which lies just a short boat ride off the coast of Praslin, is like a blast from the past. Cars are limited and the preferred mode of transport around this tiny island is by bicycle. Once you’ve pedaled around with your partner, head to a local café and experience local Seychellois life at its best.
The Seychelles enjoys a warm tropical climate and year-round average temperatures of 30°C, making it an ideal romantic island destination to visit any time of year. What are you waiting for?
Local vibes in Victoria
The quaint capital of Victoria, with its hint of French and British history, is the best place to soak up the friendly Seychellois vibe, especially at the busy daily market where local crafts are sold alongside fish, fruit and vegetables.
With ribbons of beaches to explore, shaded pergolas to lounge beneath, and the slow, slow tempo of the islands to match your tidal idle, there’s something undeniably romantic about a Seychelles holiday. Book your Seychelles honeymoon or couple’s getaway with us today.
