Best Time to Visit Seychelles

Seychelles is an archipelago of 115 islands located in the Indian Ocean and is one of the most visually stunning places on earth. It’s home to pristine beaches, lush rainforests, and a bounty of wildlife that make it truly unique.

But when is the best time to visit? Let’s explore when you should plan your trip to get the most out of your Seychelles experience.

The Climate

The climate in Seychelles is tropical and hot year-round, but there are still distinct seasons.

The hottest months occur between December and March with temperatures reaching up to 33°C (91°F). April through May brings slightly cooler temperatures as well as more rain.

June through August are known as the northeast monsoon season and this is when you can expect average temperatures ranging from 25-31°C (77-88°F) as well as more frequent showers.

September through November marks the southwest monsoon season, which brings less rain and higher humidity.

What You Can Do

No matter what time of year you decide to visit, there will be plenty to do in Seychelles! Depending on what type of vacation you are looking for, some months may be better than others.

For example, if you are looking for a beach holiday with lots of sunshine then April through October would be ideal since it’s usually sunny during this period although there can be occasional showers.

If you’d like to go sightseeing or take part in some outdoor activities such as hiking or kayaking then March or April could be best since these months bring fewer showers so it’s easier to enjoy outdoor activities without worrying about getting wet!

On the other hand, if you’d like to experience some wildlife then September through November could be better since this is when nesting turtles lay their eggs on several of Seychelles’ beaches!

Lastly, if you want to experience a bit of both—sunshine and wildlife—then May could be perfect since this month often has both sun and occasional showers which makes it great for enjoying outdoor activities while also having chances for spotting animals!


No matter what time of year you decide to visit Seychelles, it will always provide a unique experience full of natural beauty, wonderful wildlife encounters, and plenty of fun activities!

To get the most out of your stay we recommend choosing a month based on your interests—whether that means sunny days at the beach or exploring nature outdoors—so that you can truly make your trip unforgettable!

With its stunning beaches, lush rainforest trails, and abundant wildlife opportunities there truly is something for everyone in Seychelles no matter when they decide to visit!
