Royal honeymoon in the Seychelles

Prince William and Kate Middleton have selected one of the islands in the Indian Ocean Republic of Seychelles for their honeymoon.The Minister of Tourism of Seychelles was overjoyed with the publicity this will bring to the country but he would not reveal to the press which island the royal couple are staying in. “They will want some peace and quiet and there couldn’t be a better place for them to find it,” he said.

The Seychelles consists of over 100 granite and coral islands situated about 1,500 km from the east coast of Africa and north east of Madagascar. Azure blue waters, pristine white sand and large granite boulders are common in the islands. There are 16 islands which currently offer tourist accommodation ranging from luxuty 5-star resorts to rustic island lodges.

The royal couple flew to the Seychelles from England in a private jet and then took a helicopter to the island where they plan to stay for two weeks. For all you romantics out there - this is a perfect place for your honeymoon - or for rekindling your romance.
