Date Posted: 28/03/2017

With its reliably sunny climate, white sandy beaches, clear turquoise waters and flourishing green landscapes, it should come as no surprise that beautiful Seychelles is a popular holiday destination for celebrities. Many famous people, from royalty to movie stars, have visited the islands over the years.

Royal Family

Among the most famous visitors, in 2011 the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge flew out to a secret location in Seychelles for their romantic honeymoon. Following the marriage of Prince William to Kate Middleton, the couple jetted off to a luxury holiday on one of the alluring islands - the exact location couldn't be revealed for security reasons.

They chose the picturesque islands for their romantic getaway as it was the best place to find peace and tranquillity to celebrate their union. The local department of tourism expressed delight that the royal couple had chosen Seychelles. It was the second trip to the archipelago for William and Kate; in August 2007, they spent a week on the island of Desroches - a smaller secluded island, 150 miles from Mahe.

Kunal Kapoor

Famous Bollywood actor Kunal Kapoor wed fiancée Naina Bachchan in a romantic Seychelles beach ceremony in 2015. The picture-perfect beaches have been a romantic setting for many intimate weddings over the years and this time, it was legendary actor Kapoor who broke the hearts of millions of fans by marrying his sweetheart on the soft white talcum powder sands.

The exact location was kept secret to avoid an intrusion of the press, although the heartthrob actor tweeted a picture of the beach with the lapping blue ocean before the ceremony - to thank fans for their good wishes.

Funke Akindele

Nigerian actress, Funke Akindele and her rap star husband, JJC Skillz, alias Abdulrasheed Bello, flew out to enjoy a romantic holiday in Seychelles in 2017. It was described as a belated honeymoon following their private wedding ceremony in London in August 2016. The pair flew out to the islands and shared moments from their trip on their social media accounts.

It was the ideal spot for a peaceful break after the Seychelles government introduced laws to protect visiting celebrities' privacy, to enable them to escape their frantic A-list lifestyles.
