Seychelles weather overview

Most of the 90 Indian Ocean islands that make up the Seychelles are low-lying although Mahe, the largest in the group, has a hilly terrain.

They lie outside the cyclone belt but rainfall everywhere is moderate to heavy all year, particularly between October and March and on their southern coasts, which are exposed to the southeast trade winds.

Despite all the rain, the climate is delightfully sunny with temperatures high but tolerable and humidity tempered by soft ocean breezes - hence the islands' popularity with holidaymakers. The driest months are June to August.
