For a couples holiday

Opt for Praslin, offering tranquil beaches for romantic sunset walks, and the private, almost untouched, Anse Lazio. The island also has several luxury resorts, which offer couple spa treatments and private dinners.

La Digue is a great destination for friends. With bicycle-friendly roads, you can easily explore the island's beaches, cafes, and bars. The island also offers unique experiences such as snorkelling and turtle spotting.

When to Visit

The charm of Seychelles can be experienced year-round, thanks to its tropical climate. However, if you're after the clearest waters for diving and snorkelling, plan your visit between March and May, or September to November. For sailing enthusiasts, the trade winds from May to September provide perfect conditions. Despite being warm year-round, it is worth noting that December to February can be slightly rainier. Yet, the occasional showers often make way for lovely sunshine, making the Seychelles an attractive destination for sun-seekers at any time of the year.
