Please select your location:

The Seychelles is just seven degrees south of the Equator, so the temperature is consistently around 30°C all year round, with a mixture of sunshine and tropical showers. The region enjoys a beautiful climate all year, and sea breezes can deal with much of the humidity. The northwest tradewind from November to March and southeast wind from May to September can cause seaweed to build up on some beaches, so it is important to consider the right hotel locations at different times of year.

I would be happy to be in the Seychelles at any time of year. It's such a relaxing place that the odd shower never bothers me, because it's always warm and there's usually sun to follow.
