It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Seychelles

Peak Season: May to August

While the temperatures reach their peak, mild breezes and the absence of hurricanes and rainfall ensure a perfect holiday during this comparatively busy time of year. Trade winds will sometimes rile up the waves and send visitors in search of protected shores. Book early to guarantee the best rates.

Low Season: mid-December to March

Considered the rainy season, travelers will find the best bargains during this time period, although the December/January holiday season can see increased hotel rates. Indian Ocean cyclone activity can bring gray, windy weather, even though the Seychelles is beyond the cyclone zone. Infrequent but sudden, heavy showers cool the sun-soaked islands and give relief from the intense humidity that can thicken the air.

Sweet Spot: April; September to mid-December

You can get the best bang for your buck during this time. Easter can get busy, but the shoulder season usually holds the promise of balmy weather and naturally warm waters. You can expect the occasional rain shower, but far from day-spoiling, it’ll be brief and refreshing.
