The Seychelles

Seychelles Map

Long renowned as the perfect honeymoon destination, the beautiful Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles are also a great deal more. With two World Heritage Sites, four far-flung archipelagos, numerous nature reserves and bountiful coral reefs, the diverse islands hold much of interest to lovers of nature, both above and below the sea.

Colourful coral reefs teeming with fish, sea turtles, whale sharks, manta rays, rare land and sea birds, endemic flora, giant tortoises, the world’s largest nut: all find refuge in these special islands. Fascinating wildlife walks, superb scuba and snorkelling, safe swimming, fine sailing and simple beachcombing – just some of the ingredients available with which to create a deliciously natural holiday in the Seychelles.

Being outside the cyclonic belt and with benign wildlife, no malaria and safe bathing beaches, the islands are a haven for families and those desiring a more relaxing and less demanding yet stimulating natural history holiday.

Best time to visit the Seychelles:

Year-round temperatures stay around 29C (84F). There are two distinct seasons. The Southeast Monsoon runs from May -October, drier and cooler with less humidity - western coasts can have rough seas, especially June-August when Praslin’s Grand Anse suffers from seaweed. The Northwest Monsoon lasts from December-March: more rain (especially December and January), quite warm with generally lighter winds and calmer seas. A good time to visit is between monsoons - November and April, when winds change direction – but many other months can be just as pleasant. July and August are the driest, coolest yet windiest months. Dive sites are mostly year round, with some regional differences. Seabirds nest  from May-September, and migrate from October.
