As the Seychelles islands are blessed with a year-long warm, tropical climate, it is always a good time to visit, although different times of year may be better suited to your particular interests.
The periods of calm between the trades produce fairly warm and wind-free conditions throughout April and also in October. Conditions for swimming, snorkelling and especially diving are superb during April/May and October/November when the water temperature sometimes reaches 29ºC and visibility is often 30 metres plus.
Seychelles’ 115 islands fall under two distinct groups. The tall granite, Inner Islands cluster mainly within the relatively shallow Seychelles’ plateau, while the low-lying coralline cays, atolls and reef islands of the Outer Islands lie mainly beyond the plateau.
There is a wide variety of accommodation on the Seychelles islands and you can choose from rustic retreats, luxury lodges or five-star hotels. Home to white sand beaches and tropical forests with the iridescent waters filled with pristine coral reefs, tropical fish and an array of marine life. Towering palms frame rustic retreats which open up onto this unspoilt getaway – it really does feel like paradise!
The major Destinations are Mahe Island, the main island that plays home to the capital Victoria, Praslin Island and its Vallee de Mai and unique Coco-de-Mer palm and La Digue Island which is smaller and more remote.
