Les Seychelles en un clin d’œil
The best time to discover Seychelles is summer, from June to September, with an average temperature between 26 and 28 ° C, for a beautiful tan assured. (warning : sunscreen required! :))
Note that July and August are the busiest months for tourists from around the world and high winds can make the sea rough.
What to do?
Victoria is one of the few cities of the archipelago, which is on Mahe island. You can visit the botanical garden and the museums, then drive to the south of the island to discover the site of Tamataka cove, and beautiful beaches like Beau Vallon or Anse Soleil , less accessible but with beautiful scenery.
Aldabra Atoll is the largest island in the Seychelles archipelago, forming four islands encircling a protected lagoon where visits are regulated because of the presence of thousands of giant turtles and birds.

The currency, is the Seychellois rupee, but tourists must pay in euros or dollars most of the time.
To travel through islands, ferries make the connections. Regular buses exist on the island of Mahé. On short distances we recommend walking or cycling to enjoy the beautiful scenery.
Most of the hotels are on Mahé island and for the others, they are in Praslin and La Digue.
The small islands (Denis, Bird, Desroches, Silhouette, Frégate, Alphonse …) often have only one hotel per island, usually very small but also very luxurious with fairly high prices.
