Seychelles Holidays

Mauritius offers a sub-tropical climate and warm weather pretty much all year round, with temperatures rarely falling lower than 18°C or exceeding 31°C. The island has two distinct seasons: summer (Nov-April) which sees hotter weather and more rain, and winter, (June-September) which sees cooler drier weather.

The Seychelles is a nature lover’s haven with an endless choice of gardens, parks, nature reserves, and mangrove forests to explore, most of which are inhabited by native wildlife, birds, and plants. The archipelago is home to the world’s largest concentration of Aldabra giant tortoises, as well as the famous Coco de Mer palm tree and hawksbill turtles. One of the most impressive nature parks in the Seychelles is the Baie Ternay Marine National Park, which protects abundant marine species including whale sharks and dolphins.

There is so much more to this archipelago; away from its beaches and nature you can immerse yourself in culture by visiting local villages and markets and sightseeing at museums and old heritage monuments. The opportunities are endless in Seychelles! Browse our best Seychelles holiday packages today and look forward to the ultimate Indian Ocean adventure.
