Climate

The Seychelles islands are located in the Equatorial belt and are therefore characterized by a generally warm and humid climate throughout the year. The temperature seldom drops below 24 degrees or rises above 33 degrees centigrade. However, the weather is influenced by two main trade winds.

South East Trade Winds: June to September – the weather is usually windy with the possibility of scattered showers. Nice and cool.

  • Mahe Island
    • Seaweed found on the East Coast • North Coast is calm while the South-west coast is rough

    Praslin Island
    • Seaweed found on Grand-Anse Beach in the East

North West Trade Winds: End of November to February – characterized by tropical showers with high temperatures. It is however, the best periods for fishing and diving as marine life flourishes in such weather conditions.

  • Mahe Island
    • North Coast is more rough with deposit of seaweed on the beaches. (but still safe for swimming)

    Praslin Island
    • Seaweed found on Cote d’Or beach in the West.

Intermediate Season: March and October to November are dry with high temperatures. The month of April signifies the beginning of migration for different species of seabirds – an ideal period for ornithologists.

The Seychelles lies outside the cyclone and hurricane belts, one of the few places in the world that has no real natural hazard or dangers. However, the sun is intense at all times and suntan lotions with high protection factors is highly advisable.
