1. What is the best time to visit the Seychelles?

The best time to visit the Seychelles is during the months of April and May and then October and November. These are the transition months between the hot and humid northwest winds, and the cooler southeast winds.

2. What can I do in the Seychelles?

The Seychelles is a warm water tropical island destination, which means you have a full range of activities including scuba diving, snorkeling, boating, island exploration and of course lounging in the warm sun with a cocktail in hand :)  

3. Is there malaria in the Seychelles?

The Seychelles is not a malaria area but like all humid island destinations, mosquitos are present, especially in the hot months. 

The luxury hotels are prepared for this and all rooms either have fans, air cons or both to deter the little irritating buggers.
