Things to do in the Seychelles in April

Beach holiday

If you're in the mood for a beach holiday, then April is a great time to visit. This month, the weather usually does not bring unpleasant surprises and provides a pleasant pastime on the many beaches.

Fans of ocean entertainment should visit the famous Beau Beach Vallon on the island of Mahe. This is the most visited beach on the island, where tourists can expect a lively atmosphere, all kinds of water activities, a variety of excursions and beautiful sunsets.


Snorkeling and diving

The Seychelles is one of the most beautiful diving destinations in the world. In April, warm and clear waters provide good visibility. And the calmness of the ocean allows dive centers to organize boat trips to remote locations that may be inaccessible at other times due to strong waves and winds. Therefore, April is great for exploring marine life. And here it is surprisingly rich and diverse.

There are four marine national parks in the Seychelles, richly populated by marine life. More than 150 species of reef fish, giant moray eels and groupers, sharks, rays and sea turtles, colorful coral reefs and wrecks are just a small part of what can be seen by looking under the surface of the ocean.

Diving in the Seychelles is possible on the inner and outer islands. The main dive sites are concentrated around the inland islands of Mahe, La Digue and Praslin. Of the external locations, the most attractive for diving are the atolls of Cosmoledo, Astove, Poivre and the island of Alphonse.

As for snorkeling, this type of leisure activity is available both during numerous sea excursions and directly from the beaches of the main tourist islands. Best beaches for snorkeling: Beau Vallon, Baie Lazare and Anse Soleil on the island of Mahe, Anse Lazio and Anse Volbert on Praslin Island, Anse Severe, Anse Patate, Anse Source d'Argent and Anse Caiman on the island of La Digue.


Bird watching

Seychelles is rightly considered a paradise for bird watchers. Birdwatching is one of the most popular local activities. More than 250 bird species have been recorded on the outer islands alone, including rare species important to the region.

In March-April in the Seychelles you can see the passage of migratory birds. And among the most popular places for bird watching, it is worth highlighting: Morne National Park on the island of Mahe, Vallee de Mai on Praslin Island, Veuve Nature Reserve on La Digue Island, and Aride, Cousin and Bird Islands.

Tourists are offered special excursions during which you can watch birds in their natural habitat. At the same time, it is necessary to adhere to the important rules of the ornithologists' code: do not disturb the birds and their habitats, follow the instructions of the guide and not violate the interests of wildlife.



Good weather with a minimum amount of precipitation in April accompanies excursions and exploration of the surroundings.

The Seychelles Islands have a large number of picturesque natural trails, walks along which will certainly delight lovers of active leisure.

Morne National Park, which occupies more than 20% of the island of Mahe, will allow you to admire rare bird species and enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the surrounding area. There are several routes here that vary in length and degree of physical difficulty.

A fascinating walk through the botanical garden of Mont Fleuri on the island of Mahe is suitable for both adults and children, providing the opportunity to admire many beautiful plants, including the famous Coco de Mer palm, as well as encounter giant tortoises.
