Seychelles really does have it all. Here you can swim or snorkel in waters in impossibly vivid shades of blue, that lap at powdery white sand beaches. Diverse marine life, noisy colonies of seabirds and forests climbing volcanic hillsides provide so many scenes of natural wonder. And the sensory overload of fragrant Creole cuisine, aromatic spice gardens and the pampering of exclusive resorts all go especially well with the Seychelles’ far-from-the-world magnificence.
Seychelles can be visited at any time. May to September is a lovely part of the year as it is the driest and coolest time to visit. Hikers will particularly enjoy this time. This is however when the southeast trade winds blow and the sea might be a bit choppy. The best sea conditions for diving and snorkeling are from March to May and from September to November.
