Seychelles Travel Guide and Tourism

An archipelago of 115 islands sprinkled in the Indian Ocean, Seychelles is a secluded tropical getaway, located off the east coast of Africa. Experiences on the Seychelles island range from walking on the soft white-sand beaches, snorkelling or scuba-diving to meet the marine life that thrives in the clear, crystalline waters, explore the national parks and bird reserves, spot whale sharks or just spend time sampling the flavourful cuisine, which is heavy on coconut, seafood and curry. This heaven on earth is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, but it comes at a heavy cost. You can’t expect to have a budget trip on Seychelles island. While you could find a few Airbnbs and family-run guesthouses, eating and tourism in Seychelles is still quite heavy on the pocket. But if you can afford it, then this paradise will be available to you in perfect form – pristine and isolated.

Best Time to Visit Seychelles

Peak season to visit Seychelles is from December to March and July to August, when the weather is cool and dry.         

 

Shoulder Season: Fewer tourists visit Seychelles in April, May, October and November, and the islands are calm. This is a good time to scuba dive or drive around in a boat.

 

Off-season: June and September is when the Seychelles is practically free of tourists, so you can score some deals at hotels.
