Seychelles Tailor-made Holidays

The spectacular islands of the Seychelles are a haven for honeymooners, families and those desiring a more relaxed yet stimulating wildlife holiday

Seychelles

Long renowned as the perfect honeymoon destination, the beautiful Indian Ocean islands of the Seychelles are also a great deal more. With two World Heritage Sites, four far-flung archipelagos, numerous nature reserves and extensive coral reefs, the diverse islands hold much of interest to lovers of nature, both above and below the sea’s surface.

Warm Indian Ocean waters teeming with fish, nudibranchs, sea turtles, whale sharks and manta rays; rare land and sea birds, endemic flora, rare skinks, geckos, giant tortoises and the world’s largest nut, the coco de mer: all find refuge in these special islands. Fascinating wildlife walks, great scuba and snorkelling, safe swimming, fine sailing and simple beachcombing – just some of the ingredients available with which to create a deliciously natural holiday in the Seychelles.

Being outside the cyclonic belt and with benign wildlife, no malaria and safe bathing beaches, the islands of the Seychelles are a haven for families and those desiring a relaxing yet stimulating wildlife and natural history holiday.

Best Time To Visit Seychelles

Year-round temperatures stay around 29C (84F). There are two distinct seasons. The Southeast Monsoon runs from May -October, drier and cooler with less humidity – western coasts can have rough seas, especially June-August when Praslin’s Grand Anse suffers from seaweed. The Northwest Monsoon lasts from December-March: more rain (especially December and January), quite warm with generally lighter winds and calmer seas. A good time to visit is between monsoons – November and April, when winds change direction – but many other months can be just as pleasant. July and August are the driest, coolest yet windiest months. Dive sites are mostly year round, with some regional differences. Seabirds nest from May-September, and migrate from October.

The Seychelles are known for their granitic islands: mid-ocean remnants of subcontinental India’s long, slow journey from Gondwanaland to its collision with Asia. These islands (eg Mahe, Praslin, La Digue, Silhouette, Round Island) are therefore much older than most others of more recent volcanic origin: their granite has had time to erode into beautiful, organically shaped boulders which frame numerous perfect beaches like Anse Lazio on Praslin and La Digue’s Anse Source d’Argent, the location for many a fashion and lifestyle shoot.
