The Seychelles are known as a honeymoon destination but it’s more than that! The nature is magnificent. A hundred islands strewn like confetti on the ocean. A trip that you will never forget. But a little preparation is necessary! You will have to think about the number of days, the cost, the travel, but also the number of islands to visit.

When to plan a visit?

This is a question we are often asked. Dora will tell you that the best times are around April and May, but also around October. Kathrine will tell you that any time of the year is a good time to go. A warm and tropical climate prevails all year round in the Seychelles with temperatures ranging from 26 to 32 degrees Celsius. Due to the close location to the equator, there is almost no variation in temperatures and therefore a trip can be scheduled any time of the year.

How many days should I plan for a stay in the Seychelles?

Going for a week is not worth it because the trip from Europe is quite long. The minimum we recommend is 10 days. 

The ideal is to do 2 or 3 islands to really feel the spirit of the Seychelles as well as the real experience of the sea by taking the boat to get to Praslin or La Digue. Leaving for 2 to 3 weeks allows you to fully immerse yourself in the beauty and rhythm of the islands.

How much does a stay in the Seychelles cost?

Life is expensive in the Seychelles. Many products are imported. Going for a drink or going to a restaurant costs almost the same as in the nice neighborhoods in Brussels. To save money, it is worth grocery shopping and cooking at home. A rental car costs around 50 euros per day. If that already seems too big a budget, there is the Tata bus which allows you to cross the island in a more “local” way.

Why visit several Seychelles islands?

There are about fifteen islands that can be easily discovered. There are two different types of islands: granite islands and coral islands. Some islands are mountainous and invite you to stroll. The main islands of the Seychelles (Mahé, Praslin and La Digue) as well as a few others (Cerf, Silhouette, Felicité, Sant Anne, Ronde, etc.) are all accessible from each other within an hour by boat. Transfers between the islands are quick and the sea views are amazing. Follow this link to book your boat trip:

A few useful tips:

- Do not forget to take anti-seasickness medication before crossings by boat

- Take walking shoes for mountain strolls

- Provide adapter plugs to English electrical outlets
