We started our honeymoon journey from Dubai International Airport. We had a direct flight for 4.30 hours via Emirates Airline to Seychelles International Airport in Mahé located near the Capital of Seychelles, Victoria.
We had our flight at 2:30 AM and we landed around 7:30 AM in Seychelles. Seychelles has on Arrival Visa for Pakistani Nationals. In the plane, we had given the Polio declaration form which we needed to keep with us and submitted to the Emigration officer on passport control.
The process was quite smooth but the queue was a bit long as they had two opened passport control counters. The Airport is quite small, it hardly took us 5 minutes in luggage pick-up and exiting the airport.
We bought the local sim from the Airport which was quite expensive as our resort was on another Island called “Silhouette” we wanted to stayed connected.
Silhouette Island is the 3rd largest Island of Seychelles with the population of 200 people. The Island also has 5 mountains over 500 meter tall.
The ferry service to Silhouette Island is from Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa located in Victoria. We took the Taxi to Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort which was around 16 KM from Airport and it cost us $40.
After the drive of 30 minutes, passing by a beautiful landscape we reached the Resort. Everyday, the ferry goes 3 times to Silhouette Island and comes back 2 times to Main Island.
The timings of Ferry were normally according to the timings of International flight. We reached around 10 AM and waited for our ferry around 30 minutes.
Private ferry transfer for the Guest of Hilton Labriz had been offered by Hilton. The transfer cost was around $45 per person for the round trip. Silhouette Island is like a private Island where you don’t find many local people.
The hotel staff was very friendly, they placed our luggage in the Ferry. We had a ferry ride for around 40 minutes. The breeze and the beautiful turquoise sea made our journey very memorable.
We finally reached our Resort Hilton Labriz, the staff took off our luggage at the dock and put it in the Golf car. The Golf car took us to the main reception. The staff greeted us with fresh drinks.
The check-in time was 2 PM. We were lucky that our room was already prepared. Some guests needed to wait until their room got ready.

The beach was very private and most of the time, we hardly had 1-2 couples near us. The beach provides the ultimate experience of privacy with no crowd at all.
The beach had Coral Reef due to which water remains shallow. So, the swimmers like me can easily swim and enjoy the ocean with safe swimming.
The beach had large granite rocks and tropical trees which made the most beautiful scenic view. The beach was also perfect for family vacations and kids friendly.
The granite boulders were protecting the beach from the open ocean. It’s also a perfect beach for the photographer where they can cover the beauty beach in Indian Ocean.
The weather of the tropical island was just perfect around 28 degree Celsius with beautiful sun and clouds at the same time in the sky.
We used to spend most of our time on the beach soaking up the sunlight and swimming in the Indian ocean turquoise water.
The beach also had Hammock attached with the trees which was so relaxing.
Note: Don’t forget to Put the sunblock, I really had a bad sunburn.
