seychelles best time to visit

Seychelles is a group of more than 100 islands in the vast Indian Ocean. It houses some of the most exotic beaches that exist in the world such as the white powder beaches of Beau Vallon on Mahe and Anse Lazio on Praslin. Owing to its varying topography, one can hike mountain trails, bask on the ravishing beaches, rock climb, view flora and fauna as well as partake in Aquatic activities such as diving, snorkeling, surfing, and sailing.

Seychelles is a vibrant country owing to its cosmopolitan way of life with inhabitants from diverse races, religions and cultures.

  1. Go diving:
    Perhaps one of the most alluring characteristics of the Seychelles is the clear turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean which surround the islands. The stunning topography of expansive reefs, walls, pinnacles, drop offs, wrecks and canyons make for one of the most diverse marine environments around, teeming with both fish and coral life.

  2. Take a tour of La Digue’s coco plantation:
    Take a step back in time and visit L’Union Estate on La Digue island, where you can see a traditional copra mill and kiln (kalorifer), watch the antics of the estate’s population of giant land tortoises, stroll around the majestic Plantation House framed by giant granite boulders in landscaped gardens, or go horse back riding.

  3. Walk in the Vallee de Mai on Praslin Island:
    The legendary Vallée de Mai, administered by the Seychelles Islands Foundation, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. So remarkable that it was once believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden and this beautiful primeval forest is home to some 6000 Coco-de-mer trees.

  4. Rock climbing granite peaks
    While you’re still at Ephélia, dust your fingers with chalk, put on the provided climbing shoes (they’re clean – I checked) and make your way up the 18-metre high granite rocks. Each of the five routes are colour-coded according to their degree of difficulty and present a new challenge for your climbing abilities.

  5. Hit the trails on Mahe Island:
    Almost all of the Seychelles’ main island Mahe is covered in luxuriant green jungle, where squadrons of fruit bats and tropical birds patrol over rich old growth rainforest that surrounds the 2700ft (822 m) summit of Morne, Mahe’s tallest peak.  Hiking along one of the many trails within the Morne Seychellois National Park is a pure delight.

  6. Taste creole dishes:
    Echoing the grand assortment of people who populate Seychelles, Creole cuisine features the subtleties and nuances of French cooking, the exoticism of Indian dishes and the piquant flavours of the Orient. Grilled fish or octopus coated with a sauce of crushed chillies, ginger and garlic are national favourites as are a variety of delicious curries lovingly prepared with coconut milk and innovative chatinis made from local fruits such as papaya and golden apple.

  7. Go island hopping:
    What sets the Seychelles apart from so many other holiday destinations is its wide variety of islands, each one with its own particular geography, character and history. Experiencing more than one island during your stay is a must and will add a dimension to your holiday experience that you will never forget..

  8. Deep Sea fishing:
    The Seychelles offers big game fishing, night fishing, deep sea and bottom fishing. From Mahé embark on a half- or full-day fishing expedition, around 40 kilometres offshore there are sharp drops of up to 2 000 metres.

  9. Take a bicycle tour: The best way to get from one beach to the next on the quaint island of La Digue is by bicycle and you can easily cycle the entire island in a day. Sometimes you will barely cycle 100 metres before discovering yet another untouched beach, with no one else in sight.

  10. Go scuba diving:
    Don’t miss out on one of the world’s top scuba diving sites, even if you don’t have your open water divers license. Within an hour of doing a beginners Padi-accredited Discover Scuba diving course with Big Blue Divers – one of the oldest diving schools on Mahé – you’ll float through the waters of Baie Ternay Marine Park.
