Denis Private Island
From the moment you land on the grass runway at this private coral island, you know you have arrived somewhere special; a Seychelles gem and a Mahlatini favourite. 30 minutes by light aircraft from Mahe, this 'Robinson Crusoe' island offers barefoot luxury, but with a relaxed, friendly style. Nature is king here and the island won Best Sustainable Tourism Destination in the 2021 World Travel Awards. The spacious cottages, all just steps from the beach, have furniture made on the island with wood from fallen trees.
You could simply spend your time sunbathing on the beach waiting for the magical sunset, but to do that would be to miss what Denis is about. Diving and deep-sea fishing are outstanding, while snorkelling behind the reef provides opportunities to swim with turtles. For more leisurely pursuits, indulge in a spa treatment in your cottage garden or head off for a spot of ultimate beachcombing. Denis Island makes the perfect choice as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday, particularly with hotels on the main island of Mahe. It's a honeymoon heaven, but also great for families too.
