The SeychellesOff the coast of Kenya, the 115 coral and granite islands of the Seychelles are home to lush jungles, spectacular waterfalls, pristine beaches, and some of the most beautiful resorts on the planet. The country also just so happens to be one of the best places to travel in November, representing a break between the humid northwest trade winds and the cooler southeast trade winds. In other words? The weather is absolutely perfect. You’ll also dodge the December high season, allowing you to really enjoy your sunbathing and scuba diving uninterrupted. For what may end up being the most luxurious experience of your life, stay in one of the 11 fantasy villas at North Island. Bookended by a lush forest and coral-rich water, the resort offers every paradisiacal amenity, from marble tubs and outdoor showers to chefs that prepare meals right in your suite. Good luck returning to your snowy hometown after that.
