Holidays In Seychelles

SEYCHELLES TRAVEL TIPS

Time: GMT +4
Flying Time from UK: Approx 10 hours
Language: The official languages are Creole and English.
Climate: Due to its close proximity to the equator there are no seasonal changes and the islands bask in a warm, humid climate, cooled by the ocean breezes year round. December and January tend to be the wetter months when showers are frequent but short. The year has two wind patterns: the southeast tradewinds blow from May to September and the northwest monsoon from November to March. This is important to know when choosing your resort.

Currency: Seychelles Rupee (SCR) 1 = SCR9.40 approx.
Departure Tax: 22 incorporated into your air ticket.
Visa Requirements: A visa is not required for British citizens for stays of less than one month.

Festivals, Events & Busy Times: Most public holidays are Roman Catholic events, including Easter; the Assumption, and the Immaculate Conception. The one major non-religious festival is Festival Kreol, which was set up to preserve and promote Creole culture. Held every year around the end of October, this weeklong festival is an explosion of Creole cuisine, fashion, art, music and dance. Creole artists from all over the world descend on the Seychelles for this festival of street theatre.
