About Seychelles

Here is where you can find the most beautiful beaches in the world. The powder-fine white sand, the crystal clear water and the spectacular rock formations are simply overwhelming.

As Seychelles is an exclusive and popular high-end travel destination entirely free of mass tourism, you will always find empty beaches. That makes Seychelles an ideal destination for honeymooners or couples searching for a romantic holiday.

Seychelles have many activities to offer, guaranteeing both relaxation and adventure. Did you know that the evergreen mountain slopes rise up to 1000 meters above sea level? Seychelles is not only perfect for snorkelling, diving and sailing but also ideal for hiking, cycling and shopping. If you are looking for genuine adventure, explore the island in a jeep, which you can easily rent.

Seychelles Basic Information

Electricity

Electrical current is 220-240 volts, 50Hz. Plugs are of the British type, with three flat pins.

Language

Creole, English and French are all spoken in the Seychelles.

Money

The Seychelles currency is the rupee (SCR), which is divided into 100 cents. It’s uncommon to buy goods or pay for services in any other currency, though some guesthouses and hotels may accept euros or US dollars. Credit cards are widely welcomed throughout the Seychelles, and ATMs are available at major banks in Victoria and Praslin. Money can be exchanged at travel agents, banks and bureau de changes.

Safety

Safety is not generally an issue in the Seychelles; violent crime is unlikely and most visits are trouble free. There have been some incidents of theft and assault, but these are targeted mainly at residents. Visitors should be vigilant, particularly after dark in Victoria and in isolated areas, and should avoid taking valuables to the beach, where petty thieves might snatch them. Women should avoid walking alone on isolated beaches.

Seychelles Travel Specifics

Health

Health regulations in the Seychelles require that travellers who arrive from or have transited through areas where there is a risk of yellow fever transmission have a vaccination certificate. All eligible travellers should be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines; immunisation against hepatitis A, hepatitis B and typhoid are recommended. Visitors are advised to bring their own medication to avert the risk of travellers’ diarrhoea, as well as sun block and insect repellent, as local supplies can be erratic and costly. During the rainy season in particular, visitors should take precautions against mosquito bites due to the risk of dengue fever and the chikungunya virus (although these diseases are rare in Seychelles). Tap water meets WHO standards, but most visitors prefer to drink bottled water, which is widely available. Medical facilities on the more remote islands are limited or non-existent, but visitors will find a government hospital and several private clinics in Victoria. Medical insurance with full evacuation cover is necessary.

Duty free

Travellers to the Seychelles over 18 years do not have to pay duty on 200 cigarettes, or 250g of tobacco; two litres of spirits and two litres of wine; 200ml of perfume or eau de toilette. Prohibited items include drugs, narcotics, firearms, spear-fishing equipment, and camouflage clothing.

Entry requirements

United States citizens require a passport valid for at least the length of their stay and will be issued with a visitor’s permit on arrival, valid for three months. A visa is required.

British citizens need a passport valid for the duration of their stay, and will be issued with a visitor’s permit on arrival, valid for three months. A visa is required.

Canadians require a passport valid for at least the length of their stay and will be issued with a visitor’s permit on arrival, valid for three months. A visa is required.

Australians need a passport valid for the length of their stay and will be issued with a visitor’s permit on arrival, valid for three months. A visa is required.

South Africans must have a passport valid for the duration of their stay and will be issued with a visitor’s permit on arrival, valid for three months. A visa is required.

Irish citizens require a passport valid for the length of their stay and will be issued with a visitor’s permit on arrival, valid for three months. A visa is required.

New Zealand citizens require a passport valid for the length of their stay and will be issued with a visitor’s permit on arrival, valid for three months. A visa is required.

Passport & Visa

No foreigners require a visa to enter Seychelles. A visitor’s permit, valid for a maximum of three month, is issued on arrival and may be extended on application for up to three months. All visitors do, however, require a passport valid for the duration of their visit, a return or onward ticket, sufficient funds to cover their stay (a minimum of USD 150 per day), and proof of accommodation. Extensions are possible if applied for at least a week before expiry of visitor’s permit. It is highly recommended that travellers’ passports have at least six months’ validity remaining after the intended date of departure from their travel destination. Immigration officials often apply different rules to those stated by travel agents and official sources.

Climate in Seychelles

Seychelles is constantly hot and humid, with an average annual temperature of 84F (29C), and a similar average sea temperature, which seldom drops below 81F (27C). The heat is usually pleasantly tempered by sea breezes. The islands lie outside of the hurricane belt, so storms are rare, but tropical rains fall during January and February. It is easy to escape the showers, though, because it can be sunny on one side of an island while it rains on the other.

The Seychelles is a glorious holiday destination at any time of year, but the best time to visit depends on the desired activities. For instance, it is slightly windier between May and September, making this the ideal time to visit for those wanting to sail or enjoy other wind-based sports; whereas the best time of year for scuba diving and snorkelling is April and May or October and November, when the visibility is at its best.

Seychelles Customs & More

Tipping

Tipping generally isn’t practiced and is never expected in the Seychelles, though top-end hotels or restaurants will sometimes add a service charge of 10 to 15 percent to the bill.

Local customs

Seychellois are usually described as laid-back and easygoing, and dress codes around the destination are generally relaxed. Nudism is unacceptable, however, and topless bathing is tolerated on very few beaches. Punishments for drug offences can be severe.

Doing business

In the Seychelles, business is conducted relatively informally. Men and women are not required to wear formal suits, although a smart appearance is advised. Business is usually conducted in English or French. Business hours are generally 8am to 4pm Monday to Friday.

Communications

The international dialling code for Seychelles is +248. The outgoing code is 00 followed by the relevant country code (e.g. 0044 for the United Kingdom). Visitors can purchase local SIM cards for their mobile phones and many midrange and all top-end hotels offer WiFi, as do some cafes and restaurants.

Seychelles Airport

Seychelles International Airport (SEZ)

Location

The airport is located seven miles (11km) from Victoria on the island of Mahe.

 

Getting to the city

Taxis are available to carry passengers to any point on the island. A bus service to Victoria is also available and departs every 20 to 30 minutes.

Time

Local time is GMT +4.

 

Car rental

Car rental agencies operate at the airport.

Airport Taxis

Taxis leave from just outside the terminal. Taxi fares vary, so it’s best to enquire before the journey starts.

Transfer between terminals

The airport has one international and one domestic terminal. The terminals are a short walking distance from each other.

Facilities

Airport facilities include a tourism kiosk, duty-free shopping, banking and currency exchange facilities, ATMs, restaurants and bars, and an executive lounge.

Parking

Parking is available in front of the terminal buildings.

Seychelles & Mahe Attractions

Mahe is the largest and most developed island in the Seychelles, and home to the capital city, Victoria, and about 90 percent of the country’s population. There is still plenty of unspoilt island paradise to go around though, and Mahe provides a good balance between luxury amenities and natural beauty. The interior is mountainous and densely jungled, much of it protected within the boundaries of the Morne Seychellois National Park. The gorgeous coastline is ringed by many pristine dive sites, with the celebrated St Anne Marine National Park within easy reach. Beau Vallon, on the northwest coast, is a tourist magnet, and the beaches of Anse Intendance and Baie Lazare are some of Mahe’s most lovely.

Victoria is the only seaport in the Seychelles, and this tropical city retains some colonial flavour and boasts a few tourist attractions, including the Seychelles National Botanical Gardens, some historical buildings around Freedom Square, the Seychelles National Museum of History, and St Paul’s Cathedral. The Sir Selwyn Clarke Market is a good stop for local produce and crafty souvenirs, and the George Camille Gallery is a treasure trove for admirers of the local artist.

Seychelles, Paradise Sun - November 2017
Seychelles – May 2014

Good evening Edwina

Thank you very much for assisting us with our awesome honeymoon package .

We really had an outstanding honeymoon experience that won’t be soon forgotten. Seychelles is an awesome breathtaking destination that is very highly recommended on our list of places to visit.

The flight and transfers from the airport were very good and Masons travel did an excellent job with the transport, arranging for rental car and organizing of the day excursion to La Digue and Praslin. We thoroughly enjoyed the island hopping.

We really enjoyed the variety of the food that the restaurant had on the buffet daily. I’m so glad we decided not to upgrade to full board because it would have been a waste of money. The breakfast buffet was more than enough and we had a light lunch or snack when we felt like it at the local restaurants and places that we visited on other excursions.

We went out on a day trip with one of the locals where we had time to snorkel and had a BBQ on one of the abandoned islands. This was by far the highlight of our trip. Best fish BBQ we have ever had and the snorkelling was outstanding.

We had a chat with other visitors on the Island from Dubai, Canada and Romania and they all agreed that Seychelles is by far the most expensive holiday destination. They recommended that we explore Thailand in future due to the cheap rates and the beautiful beaches and hotels they had on offer. We will most certainly start saving for this trip once our baby has arrived.

Thank you once again for organizing this fantastic honeymoon package.

We will send you a few pictures

Kind regards

Seychelles, Saint Anne Resort and Ephelia,15 Jul 2016

Hi Lizelle

Dit was baie lekker gewees. Die enigste slegte gedeelte van die honeymoon was toe ons moes terug kom… Albei oorde was besonders gewees.

By Constance Ephelia kon ons maklik op Mahe rondtoer deur ‘n cab te huur vir die dag waar die drywer ons rondry en al die interessante plekke op Mahe wys. Ons kon self per voet gaan stap buite die resort en nuwe plekke ontdek.

Dit was ‘n baie lekker oord gewees met uitstekende diens en die ontbyt en aandete buffets wat ingesluit is was baie lekker.

As ons moet kies sou ons se Sainte Anne was die beste van die 2 oorde gewees. Dit is meer ruim en meer privaat, veral omdat ons ons eie klein erfie en swembad gehad het. Die buffet restaurant waar ons 3 maal ‘n dag kon eet was ook beter uiteengesit met die groot swembad regs langs dit. Die kelners se diens was ook beter daar. Dit was lekker gewees om op die oord se strande te loop en om die aktiwiteite te doen wat verniet was, soos bv. om op ‘n boot uit te gaan en te gaan snorkel en op die see te gaan kayak. Die spa was ook baie lekker gewees by albei oorde.

Die 1 voorstel was ek kan gee wat dit beter, of meer gerieflik sou maak is om slegs 1 reis agentskap te gebruik. Aangesien ons by Creole en Masons was, moes ons met albei se verteenwoordigers by die oorde reel en reis tye bevestig. Dit sou makliker gewees het as ons alles by 1 agentskap kon gehad het.

Algeheel was daar geen probleme gewees nie en ons het dit vreeslik baie geniet. Ek dink nie ons kon ‘n beter honeymoon gehad het as by Seychelles nie. Baie dankie vir die pakket wat jy vir ons gereel het.

Sien aangeheg ‘n paar highlights van ons honeymoon.

Baie lekker
