Destination – Climate Guidance
Seychelles enjoys a warm tropical climate throughout the year. The average temperature is 27°C which rarely falls below 24°C or rises above 32°C so it’s great beach weather throughout the year. There may be tropical showers at any time of year in Seychelles but the driest months are between May and September and the wettest weather from November to January.
The two main seasons in Seychelles are influenced by the prevailing trade winds.
South east trade winds – May to September – Between May and September steady winds blow from the south east bringing drier weather and lower humidity. Rough seas can affect some beaches on the south western coast of Mahe and there can also be a buildup of seaweed on the western coast of Praslin. It’s not the best time for boat crossings between the islands so you may prefer to fly between the islands instead. The plus point about the south east is that any rain is usually light and does not last long.
North west – November to March – Light winds blow from the north west and most beaches have safe swimming but this is also the wetter season in Seychelles, particularly December and January. Despite the fact that Seychellois sometimes call this time of year the “north west monsoon” these are not like rains during the monsoon in India or Asia. In Seychelles showers tend to last only a few hours rather than days. In addition, Seychelles lies outside the cyclone belt that affects the southern Indian Ocean in February and March.
Changeover months – October and April – The changeover months between the two prevailing winds when sea conditions tend to be calm and winds are usually light.
