Seychelles in July

edited January 2010 in - Pacific Islands
I would like to plan my vacation to Seychelles during July. How is the weather in July? Is the wind too strong and the see so rought that would make swimming not pleasant?

    Over July the Seychelles Islands experience the North -East Moonson Winds, therefore the wind is strong (10-25 knots) also cooler and dryer.
    So not very pleasant for swimming. If you are interested with water sports including swimming consider between September- April when the ocean is calm and warmer.

    I'm planing to visit the Seychelles and I'd like to know if there is a VISA requirement for Croatian citizens.


  • For all those still interested in finding out the best time to visit the Seychelles, here is a quick overview of the climate: the weather is warm and humid year-round, with little variation in temperature. Many people consider May to November the most comfortable time to visit as it is the driest period and trade winds bring regular relief from the heat and the opportunity for wind-based watersports. My advice is to do some research based on your desired activities and to decide when to visit accordingly. For instance, scuba divers like to visit in April/May or October/November when the visibility is best. Check out this Seychelles Travel Guide for some travel inspiration!
  • It does depend on what you want to do, as Ella suggests, and her advice is right on the money!

    One thing we'd add is that the trade winds often wash up seaweed onto the beaches on Praslin, especially on the south coast. Many hotel owners do a good job of clearing the seaweed away, but those wanting the pristine white sandy beaches you see in the brochures should either stay on the north coast of Praslin or visit the island in December - April.
