Best time to go

With a steady climate that rarely strays out of the 24 to 34°C range, the Seychelles promises sumptious sunshine, all-year round. Of course, like any tropical haven, there is a rainy season and if you're looking to leave your umbrella at home then avoid the months of January and February.
