A postcard destination par excellence, ideal for honeymoon and dream holidays, Seychelles has in no way usurped its reputation. However, due to their isolation, its 115 islands have remained wild and authentic, far from mass tourism and large hotel complexes to find accommodation. 27 km long, the main island of Mahé and its capital Victoria are easily visited on foot or by bike, following the rhythm of the sun. Smiles are easy and the "kilkir kreol" is proudly defended: its songs, dances, cuisine and language. Here you can enjoy every sunset from the most beautiful beaches in the world, with a cocktail or a bottle of SeyBrew in your hand, the national beer. However, it would be a shame not to take advantage of the trip to visit several islands or to try scuba diving to admire the seabed in these turquoise waters. On board a ferry or by opting for an internal flight, we will reach Praslin and its famous sea coconut tree with fruit that we call here "cocofess", you will understand why. It can be found in the lush and tropical May Valley, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The third most visited island, La Digue, is home to the famous paradisiac beach of Anse Source d'Argent, with its extraordinary rock formations that can be found in all the photos. Giant turtles also come to bask in the sun all year round, so they are envied! Islets such as Anse Lazio and Côte d'Or will offer immaculate white sandy beaches from which to put on their fins and snorkel to see rays and the reef. This tourist guide will try to help you make the difficult choice between the idyllic beaches to choose: Beau Vallon or Anse Royale sur Mahé? Gold Coast or Anse Lazio Cove on Praslin? Big Cove or Potato Cove on La Digue?
When to go to Seychelles?
Seychelles can be visited all year round, and for this reason the climate is invariably mild
The high tourist season generally corresponds to the holiday periods for Europeans, i.e. July-August, then Christmas, February and Easter. Prices may then rise, but there will rarely be too many of us in the same place in the Seychelles.
From November to April, the sea is ideal for diving and sailing. The climate is hot and humid, the wind is light and the sea calm.
It should be noted that there are major events on the Seychelles calendar: the Victoria International Carnival at the end of April, the Kreol Festival at the end of October and the Seychelles Ocean Festival in November or December.
