Have Your Heard of Seychelles?
The republic of Seychelles is an island nation made up of 115 islands in the Indian Ocean. Since the 1970s, its primarily sector has been tourism. French and English make up the main languages, as well as Seychellois Creole, so it's fairly easy to navigate. In recent years, it's been part of top travel spots and a beautiful place to have a destination wedding or honeymoon.
What to do?
In addition to luxurious hotels where you can sip champagne on the beach, Seychelles is also one of the big players in ecotourism. You'll be able to see a variety of magnificent wildlife like giant tortoises in their natural habit. If you get tired of the lovely white beaches and bright blue waters where you can walk or bike, you can also venture inwards into the jungle.
What to eat?
As an island nation, eating the local fish is a no brainer! Seychelles has a lot of French influence, which among other things, means a fantastic dining experience.
Best time to go?
The trade winds determine the seasons in Seychelles. These bring warmer, wetter airstreams from the northwest from October to April. From May to September the southeast trades usher in cooler, drier weather but the winds whip up the waves. The turnaround periods (March to April and October to November) are normally calm and windless.
January is the wettest month by far, and July and August the driest. Temperatures range between 24°C and 32°C throughout the year.
Peak seasons are from December to January and July to August.
