“To es­cape and sit qui­etly on the beach – that’s my idea of par­adise” – Emilia Wick­stead

If there was ever a place that boasted ‘bare­foot lux­ury’ The Sey­chelles’ North Is­land fits that bill. And af­ter a he­do­nis­tic De­cem­ber, you’ll prob­a­bly be do­ing some soul-search­ing – and there’s no bet­ter place to do that than in the depths of the In­dian Ocean. You’re in the thick of na­ture on North Is­land with four milky white beaches heaped with the soft­est of sands, grassy plateaus, un­du­lat­ing gran­ite peaks and trop­i­cal forests. The 11 vil­las of the is­land are thought­fully placed with enough pri­vacy and com­mu­nal space be­tween each other to trans­port you to an oth­er­worldly ex­is­tence and a touch of Robin­son Cru­soe. All the typ­i­cal trim­mings are on of­fer here: div­ing, surf­ing, pad­dle-board­ing and co­pi­ous amounts of swim time – best done on the cliff-top in­fin­ity pool. Up the ante on your beach hol­i­day and book a sun­set cruise or a fish­ing trip to re­ally im­merse your­self in The Sey­chelles’ vast of­fer­ings of na­ture.
