When to go to Seychelles

Lying south of the equator, the Seychelles archipelago has a warm and humid tropical climate influenced by the trade winds.
 
April and November are regarded as the best months to visit. From May to October the southeast trade winds bring drier and slightly cooler weather, with fresh breezes. The sea can be a little choppy when these winds are at their peak in July and August.
 
From December until March the winds change direction and the northwest monsoon brings the rain. However this is the best time for marine activities as the seas are at their calmest, with excellent visibility for snorkelling, diving & fishing. Severe storms are rare, as only the most remote southern islands are in the cyclone belt.
 
Seasonal seaweed can affect Praslin in particular, but as there are beaches on both sides of the island you can book a hotel on the correct coast, according to the season (or simply travel to the beaches not affected, as distances are short). From October to March the east beaches are best. From April to September the west beaches are best.
