Best time to visit
Good time to visit
Average time to visit

Situated just south of the equator, the Seychelles have a warm tropical climate. The consistently warm tropical weather makes the Seychelles a good year round destination.

There is little fluctuation in warmth, with temperatures ranging from 24C to 31C all year round. From May to October a southeast trade wind can bring marginally cooler weather and fresh breezes. From November to March the northwest monsoon wind blows, typically raising temperature and humidity. December and January are the wettest months, but the rain falls in short sharp bursts before the sun comes out again.

The best time to visit the UAE is between October and November and then February and March, when temperatures hang around the mid-20s and the humidity is under control. While December and January are generally considered the best months to go, the weather over the last couple of ‘winters’ has been unpredictable with occasional cloud and rain.

The month of Ramadan means hotel rates are heavily discounted, but while outside the resort, Ramadan is strictly adhered to, within the resorts you will notice very little difference.

High summer (July and August) means heavy discounted hotels it’s a great option for a cheap getaway but it will be very very hot and very very humid!

Itinerary

Fly to Desroches Island (via Mahe)
Day 1-6

Desroches, Seychelles

Described as one of the most beautiful islands in the world, Desroches is hemmed with endless beaches protected by a coral reef. With five nights here, you can make the most of it; snorkelling, diving and fishing off shore as well as exploring inland on foot or bicycle. Children will love this natural adventure playground too, where giant tortoises roam wild and hermit crabs scuttle along the beach.

Accommodation: Four Seasons Resort Seychelles at Desroches Island ( 5 nights )
Day 6-10

Mahe, Seychelles

A domestic flight will take you from Desroches Island to Mahé which has a backdrop of towering 1000m granite peaks, Mahé is an extraordinary treasure trove of flora that has evolved over centuries of splendid isolation. Famous for its beaches, Anse Royal is best for snorkelling, while Beau Vallon Bay is the most popular with sunbathers. There is an eclectic culture, where you can delve into the bustling markets of Victoria, adorned with exotic spices and fruit, before watching the local fishermen bringing in their daily catch of barracuda and kingfish.

Accommodation: Four Seasons Resort Seychelles ( 4 nights )
