Our verdict

The best time to visit Seychelles is June-September

Seychelles is a place lots of people visit almost all year round, but if you’re looking for the best time to go, June-September is definitely the time you should visit. This is based on a number of factors such as the weather, cost of flights and accommodation, peak travel periods and more.

In summer, temperatures can reach as high 30℃ (86℉) in the middle of the day in Victoria. The coldest it usually gets in winter-time in Victoria is around 24℃ (76℉). Temperatures can often differ in other locations in Seychelles, so be sure to continue reading if you plan on visiting elsewhere.

The days are longest in Seychelles in November, so if you want to see the sights during the day when the sun is up for the longest time, it’s best to visit around that time of year. The wet season in Seychelles usually falls during the months surrounding January each year. It’s not uncommon to get some decent rainfall or light showers during this time, but on some days the weather tends to be fine for a majority of the day, with only a few drops of rain falling from a passing shower.
