When To Visit Seychelles
- April-May and October-November have optimal underwater conditions for diving and snorkeling. October-April the tradewinds blow in from the Northwest are gentler but there are more showers (especially between November and January) so typical in the tropics. The showers tend to blow over quickly and it can be a very enjoyable part of the experience.
- May-September has drier weather. The steady trade winds are wonderful during this time but they can make the boat crossings to neighboring islands difficult so flying between islands is probably better at this time of the year. This is the best time of the year for surfing and sailing. The islands of Mahé and Praslin and some beaches on the Southwest of the island can be too rough for swimming although the coasts on the North and East are fine for swimming.
