Seychelles provides a tropical island holiday almost all year round. The heavy rain season breaks up the fun for a brief period, where rain showers and tropical storms replace the Azure skies, warm weather and crystal waters. However, to experience the complete Seychelles experience, it is best to visit between April and October – marking the presence of the South-East Monsoon season.
At the tail-end of May, Seychelles is beginning to cool down and dry up, allowing for endless island fun. Coming into this new season, beachgoers can be assured that their beach days will be sunny and free of rainfall – with picturesque skies and warm seawater to make you feel right at home. While the North-West Monsoon typically brings about warmer weather, there is an excessive amount of rainfall to accompany it. Meaning that while it may be warm and humid during this period, the views will be nowhere near as “Instagram friendly” as you’d like.
We cannot talk about Seychelles without paying homage to its world-class beaches. If you prefer taking things at your own pace, there are some incredible snorkelling and swimming spots littered throughout the islands of Mahe, Praslin and La Digue. Considering that the sun is shining and the milder temperatures are at play, sunbathing on the golden beaches is something that needs to be experienced at least once during your stay in paradise.
Seychelles is known for its thriving culinary scene, with influences spanning African, Asian and European cuisine. This diversity leads to a variety of incredible restaurants and social clubs being erected, each offering something different from its competitors. Not only is the food good, but the locations are what truly make these worth a visit, be it on the beach or nestled within the mountains. Check out our blog post if you would like to see some of the greatest restaurants on offer in Seychelles.
When visiting Seychelles, there is more than enough to experience on land – without having to get your clothes wet. The island of Mahe offers an assortment of Historical sites to visit, mountains to climb as well as paying a visit to the Victoria Bazaar or various other marketplaces. Not only will you get a good break from the beach and ocean, but the pristine weather conditions will make walking around an absolute pleasure.
Spending your time in Seychelles during the incoming South-East Monsoon Season will guarantee an incredible time for you and your loved ones. You’ll get to enjoy the beach, the sunshine and the best possible weather this tropical getaway has to offer.
