Seychelles – Best time to go

Best time to visit the Seychelles

If it's the warm waters of the Indian Ocean or the array of wildlife to be spotted, drawing you to the Seychelles then the good news is Seychelles holidays can be enjoyed  year-round. Temperatures remain around 30°C and average humidity levels range from 78–82%. It’s best to avoid the trade winds which affect the northwest from November to March and southeast from May to September.  There is always an island or coastal area that will be idyllic.

Best times to visit

Dry Season

Weather in the Seychelles doesn't vary too much throughout the year, with a warm tropical climate making for an ideal year round destination. April to September are the driest, coolest months, with the most comfortable temperatures. 

Rainy Season

Regular rain keeps the Seychelles lush and green, with October to March seeing hotter, wetter, more humid weather due to the northwest monsoon. The islands lie outside the hurricane belt and are rarely affected by storms. 

Favourite Season

Our favourite time of year to visit the Seychelles is the dry season, between April and September, when rainfall isn't as heavy and temperatures are high without being humid or uncomfortable.
