Seychelles is the perfect honeymoon destination, but also definitely one of the top vacation destinations in the world. The clear blue water, white sandy beaches, and exotic sea life need no introduction. With numerous beaches, beautiful coral reefs, and interesting animals like the giant Aldabra tortoises, this is an interesting place to go for a holiday. In my opinion, this is in fact a fantastic place to go on a holiday.
There are fantastic accommodation options for all budget ranges and loads of things to do and see. But be sure to make time for just a lazy day on the beach or at the resort/hotel, sipping on your cocktail. After all, this is as close to a tropical paradise as you can get.
If you’re wondering which part of Seychelles is the best, the above are excellent options.
Definitely, although it is quite expensive in places. The budget option would be to rent a self-catering apartment or chalet. Making your own food is a way of saving on cost, but do splash out at least once to try the local cuisine. It is part of the fun experience. You could save on food prices by buying from the local markets.
The Sir Selwyn Clarke Market (more commonly as the Victoria Market), is a very good option. This is as a fact also something you should add to your ‘to-do’ list.
I would say 5 to 7 days. This will give you the time to do some island hopping as well as enjoying lazy beach days. Book some fabulous activities before you go, as just staying at your hotel or resort can get a bit ‘boring’…
Seychelles has a year-long tropical climate with warm and humid weather conditions. Basically it is good to visit any time of the year as the temperature is mostly between 24 and 32°C with humidity at all times.
But in my opinion the best time would be April and May and again October and November (as there are less wind and rain).
The bus services on both Mahé and Praslin are great. When visiting La Digue you can rent a bike for sightseeing because the island is so small.
For some Island-hopping there are ferry services which are really convenient and reliable. Do book online as it just makes your life much easier.
In Praslin and Mahé a car rental option would be a good choice as this would allow you to explore more. You can easily book online before you go, to ensure you have a car ready when you land. Don’t leave this for the last minute.
