4)  Seychelles

This island has been on my bucket list for a while now. Not only was this the honeymoon destination of Prince William and Princess Kate, but also other celebrities like Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt and Salma Hayek, just to name a few. Seychelles consist of a group of islands also off the east coast of Africa near Madagascar where private beaches are the norm (…there is even one named Honeymoon beach… perfect right!).
