Help -- choosing a beach for honeymoon: Seychelles, Mauritius, Mozambique

Jump to last reply

Hi all -- we're still having trouble deciding where to go after our safari in South Africa in the last week of June. My fiancee had originally had her heart set on going to the Four Seasons in the Seychelles, but a combination of price (ouch) and somewhat difficult flight schedules has us reconsidering. Some friends have recommended Mozambique -- perhaps Indigo Bay, Azura (if we can afford it) or Benguerra Lodge. And others have suggested the Four Seasons in Mauritius, which seems to be a bit cheaper that time of year.
We'd love to snorkel and possibly do a few other activities, but we mostly just want a beautiful beach to relax on. Sounds like Mauritius might be a bit cool that time of year. On the other hand, I gather that the two FS are more luxurious than the Mozambique lodges. We might be willing to deal with the hassle and cost of going to the Seychelles if it's as amazing as everyone says. Any thoughts or advice is welcome. Thanks Fodorites!
