Seychelles - Weather & Climate


The climate is equable and healthy, although quite humid, as the islands are small and subject to marine influences. The temperature varies little throughout the year.
Temperatures on Mahe vary from 24ºC to 29.9ºC (75ºF - 85ºF), and rainfall ranges from 288 centimeters (90 in.) annually at Victoria to 355 centimeters (140 in.) on the mountain slopes. Precipitation is somewhat less on the other islands.
During the coolest months, July and August, the temperature drops to as low as 21ºC (70ºF).
The southeast trade winds blow regularly from May to November, and this is the most pleasant time of the year. The hot months are from December to April, with higher humidity (80). March and April are the hottest months, but the temperature seldom exceeds 31ºC (88ºF).
Most of the islands lie outside the cyclone belt, so high winds are rare.

Required clothing & What to pack

Remember that Seychelles has a tropical climate so light dresses are advisable. Swimsuits are a must as are shorts, short-sleeved shirts, sandals, thongs and some good walking shoes.
Because the sun is very intense great care must be taken so you will also need sunglasses and a hat. If you are planing to visit the islands in the rainy season don't forget your rainwear.

When to go

With temperatures relatively stable, averaging 29ºC (84ºF) throughout the year, Seychelles climate is always welcoming.
Depending on the focus of your vacation, there may be specific times when you should travel. Peak season occurs in December, January, July and August.
