The Seychelles is the perfect place for your honeymoon or romantic escape.

One of the younger nations in the world, the Seychelles came into existence as a nation in 1770 when a motley collection of French, African, and Indian settlers made the idyllic island chain home. After the Battle of Waterloo, the 1814 Treaty of Paris saw the island nation ceded into British administration until 1976. With so many competing influences, it’s no surprise that the Seychelles has a very distinct culture. Nowhere is this more evident than in Seychelles cuisine, which is an enchanting fusion of these different cultures. A blend of French, Indian, and Asian influences combine to make Seychelles food some of the finest you’ll ever taste, and the local seafood is something you’ll have a hard time saying goodbye to. Despite the islands’ small population, there is also a thriving artistic community on the island. Artists and musicians from around the world converge on the islands to take inspiration from their serene beauty.
