When’s the best time to have a Seychelles Holiday?
With it’s warm tropical climate and temperatures rarely falling below 24C or rising above 32C, you can visit the Seychelles and enjoy sailing and snorkelling all year-round. However, there are certain points throughout the year when conditions are best for spotting wildlife or avoiding high rain seasons.
What are conditions like through the year?
- December-February – Although high winds and thunderstorms are rare, heavier rain tends to fall mid-December to mid-January, with heavier showers extending from November to February
- March- October – The Northwest trade winds create calm oceans and warm tropical weather. October is a great time of year for scuba diving, witnessing the bird migration and catching sight of whale sharks and hawksbill turtles nesting.
- September- May – The Southeast trade winds create choppy seas and drier and cooler weather conditions. But this is a great time to visit to spot nesting of Sooty Terns and enjoy hiking trails.
As worldwide weather becomes more erratic and harder to predict we cannot be held responsible for a disruption to your Seychelles holiday due to bad weather.
