Destination: Honeymoon – Canada PM picks Seychelles

Many celebrities and top political leaders have chosen to escape to Seychelles after their weddings, and among them have been the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, as well as George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin to name but a few.

Seychelles is known to be one of the most renowned honeymoon destinations. Set in the middle of the Indian Ocean, surrounded by clear turquoise blue seas, the islands are the perfect spots for newlyweds.

Both the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin, chose the stunning North Island for their romantic getaway.

Fregate Island Private has also been a favorite honeymoon destination for many celebrity couples, and among them were Ronan Keating and wife, Storm Uechtritz.

This year it was the Prime Minister of Canada, Justin Trudeau, who chose to take his wife, Sophie Grégoire-Trudeau, to Seychelles on their honeymoon.

Prime Minister Trudeau was appointed late last year after the Liberal Party’s victory in the country’s general elections. His father, the late Pierre Trudeau, was a friend of Sir James Mancham, the founding President of Seychelles.

In a recent letter to former President Mancham, Prime Minister Trudeau has promised to return to Seychelles again.

Seychelles is a founding member of the International Coalition of Tourism Partners (ICTP) .
