Prices tend to hike during these periods and the potential for cyclones and rainfall is high from December until March. Outside these peak times, you'll find calm, windless days and warm temperatures in spring and autumn, with cooling sea breezes in summer. You'll also find a wealth of delightful festivities throughout the year that are great fun to experience. These include Kreol in October, Carnaval in April and Kavadi Thaipoosum in January.
The Seychelles is a fine destination for all ages and group sizes to enjoy. It’s a particularly romantic getaway and a prized location for honeymoons and anniversaries.

The Seychelles' international airport is found on Mahé, just 8 km south of Victoria. Once you've arrived at the airport, most hotels provide free shuttles to your accommodation. Alternatively, taxi cabs are bookable outside the airport. For connections to other islands, you can fly by air from Mahé to Praslin or take fast and reliable ferries between the islands. Buses can be found throughout the island, but rental cars are by far the most convenient mode of travel.

The Seychelles is a spectacular place for wildlife watching. With exotic birds on the aptly named Bird Island, travellers can also marvel at majestic giant tortoises on Curieuse Island. Rare birds and reptiles are found on the main island too, especially in the lush Morne Seychellois National Park.
