April-May and October-November is the best time to visit Seychelles. However, the island is blessed with a year-long tropical warm climate, making it an all-year-round destination; the best time to visit will depend on what activities best suit your interests. Two trade winds influence the weather, the north-western trade winds from October to March and the south-eastern trade winds from May to September.
The transition period between these trades in April, May, September and October is characterised by mild temperatures and wind-free conditions which are ideal for wildlife spotting, diving and snorkelling.
Peak season begins from May to September which is perfect for sailing and windsurfing. During these months, the island experiences most visitors from all over the globe and hence, are over-crowded. October - April is the best period for fishing. November-March is usually the low tourist season in Seychelles. During these months, the beaches are generally filled with seaweeds and hence, in case you travel during this time, you need to choose your hotel wisely.
