Day 1
Travelling to seychelles victoria. Seychelles comprasis of 126 islands and the total population of 95k. Out of 126 islands only 4 have life on it. Mahe (capital) praslin, La digue are the most popular. Landing at the airport it was a small little airport with a very limited crowd ..travelling to such a place was always a dream, far away, lonely, sheer lesiure. visa on arrival at the airport, doesn't take much time it just depends on the que. Tansfers straight to praslin via jetty wonderful landscaping. Praslin being second largest island of the country. cheked in at RAFFLES .

Day 2
Waking up to the beautiful view of the ocean ,infinity pool and vegetation around you, honeymooning at the seychelles is a complete different exprience. Raffles is an amazing place to stay every aspect of this property makes you fall in love with this island as well as your partner.
We took a car on hire ,well! if your on an island nothing could be cheap. The car costs around 7000rs /day .Bieng a small island you dont have to worry about the sight seeing CAR-MAP-DRIVE and you can complete the round of an island in just a few hours. Valle di mai a nature reserve wer the famous coco de mer grows is a must for a visit.Back to the raffles enjoy the sunset at the deck with some puffs of sheesha for the hukka lovers.chill#

Day 3
Check out from Raffles heading towards La-digue .Second island of the country just 30 minutes sail from praslin and the smallest one with the geography of around 3km and the population barely around 3-4k.stay at the la-digue island resort it has beautiful beach facing chalets small neat but again expensive. Bieng a small island you wont find many cars on the road best way to explore the island is cycling, rent a bicycle . While on the way to the rocky beach on the south of the island you will find many giant tortoises as old as 300-400 years. The beach had huge rocks on both the sides on which waves hit hard, wonderful sight to watch neat beach with a few tourists and a small shack which closes @6 pm. This beach has been rated worlds 2 nd most beautiful beach.

Day 4
Time for some activities..seychelles doesn't have too many activities though some of them could be kyaking, snorkelling, fishing. Soo the day has started and we are off to the shore for the long day ahead. A small yatch waiting for us would spend the the rest of the day in the middel of the sea the crystal clear blue water and temprature around 21-22 degrees made the sail perfect.so we are ready for a dive here we go...my wife pooja a good swimmer catches a turtel WOW. They say itz lucky to get a turtel. Snorkelling in the shallow waters around one of the 126 islands.The fishes turtels could be seen soo clearly it a different kind of exprience altogether. After snorkelling a fast boat ride to some other location and yea! It tym for fishing.
Fishing with your loved one on a sunset and taking a dip in the middel of the sea that was one such thing which i always wanted to do.
A perfect end of the day cycle back to the hotel.

Hi Gaurav. I came across your itinerary of Seychelles and Im planning to go dubai first and then Seychelles for my honeymoon in December. Just wanted to know how is the weather in mid December? Is it rainy? If yes, can we still do adventure sports like scuba and snorkeling? Thanks in advance.
