The Best Time to Visit Seychelles

The Seychelles Islands offers guests' wonderful weather all-year round, thanks to its warm and tropical climate. When determining the best time of year to visit the Seychelles for a vacation, it would depend on the particular interests of guests as certain months of the year are ideal for certain activities.

There are two opposing winds generally controlling the weather throughout the Seychelles, with the less intense north-westerly trades that blow from October to March with wind speeds averaging from 8 to 12 knots, and then the south-easterly trades that blow from May to September with winds averaging speeds of 10 to 20 knots – cooler and windier. The periods that fall in-between these trades are quiet warm and mostly wind-free – these are the months of April and October

For popular tourist attractions and activities like sailing and snorkelling, the very best conditions are in April/May and October/November as the water temperatures are at their highest (sometimes reaching 29 degrees) and visibility is often 30 metres plus, although these water sports can be enjoyed throughout the year. The months of May to September are great for Hiking and Walking trails and as well as for surfing and windsurfing, when the winds are at their highest. For bird-watching enthusiasts, April is breeding season, May is the nesting season for Sooty Terns and October is migration period. Fishing excursions are best planned between the months of October to April.
