North Island, Seychelles

North Island is a private island in the Seychelles with only 11 luxury villas and it is surrounded by natural beauty on every side. This private Island offers various activities such as scuba diving, snorkelling, cycling, fishing, kayaking and yoga. You will be able to experience the thrill of living in an own private island just for the two of you as the service in this island is discreet and personalised.

You can enjoy a sunset at the west beach bar, lounge in the piazza, pamper yourself in the spa and also use this island solely for private use. Firefly Collection have a villa here, and other villas in incredible locations like this around the world. It is worthwhile booking through a company like this as they usually provide a concierge service to make sure your whole holiday goes smoothly – nothing is less romantic than bickering with your other half when travel arrangements have gone wrong!
