Weather in Seychelles in July

July is one of the driest and, by Seychelles standards, coolest months of the year. The strengthening of the southeast monsoon makes it an ideal month for surfing and sailing enthusiasts. At the same time, on some beaches there may be an increased concentration of algae and stronger currents, so you need to carefully choose a place to relax and not neglect the rules of safe behavior on the water. The beaches of Beau Vallon and Cote d'Or are especially popular during this period, which are protected from the winds and are well suited for both adults and the youngest holidaymakers.

Rain in July in the Seychelles is not a frequent occurrence, but possible. As a rule, they are short-term and will definitely not ruin your vacation.

At the same time, sunscreen with a high SPF factor for safe sunbathing and long sleeves for evening walks will be completely useful in your luggage.

What to do in the Seychelles in July


The surfing season, which began in the Seychelles in April, continues. The weather conditions in the region allow surfing all year round. But if the period from December to May is more suitable for beginners, then the summer months are considered optimal for more experienced surfers.

Despite the fact that the Seychelles cannot boast of such a developed surf industry as, for example, Bali, they offer good conditions and a variety of locations for adrenaline lovers. For surfing during the southeast monsoon season, it is recommended to choose the beaches of the islands of Mahe and La Digue.



The weather in the Seychelles in July is conducive to active walks. There are a large number of marine and terrestrial national parks and gardens that are definitely worth a visit.

Land parks include Morne National Park Seychellois, Praslin National Park and Veuve Nature Reserve on La Digue Island.

Marine National Parks include Sainte Anne (one of the first marine protected areas in the Indian Ocean), Silhouette, Port Launay, Baie Ternay, Ile Cocos and Curieuse Island.


Gardens include Botanical Garden, State House Garden and the National Biodiversity Centre.

All these locations offer a variety of fauna and flora that are enjoyed by thousands of visitors every year. Moreover, each territory has its own characteristics.

Thus, the majestic Botanical Garden, located near the city of Victoria, the capital of Seychelles, attracts tourists and local residents with an abundance of plants. The most famous among them is the Coco palm de Mer. Interestingly, unlike the ordinary coconut tree, Coco de Mer has separate male and female trees. Males are distinguished by “earrings” that can reach 1 meter in length. You can admire the male tree right at the entrance to the garden. And the most popular female tree is located to the right of the main path of the garden, and was planted back in 1956 by the late Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh.

However, the main highlight of the Botanical Garden is the giant turtles that win the hearts of both children and adults. You can not only photograph the turtles, but also feed them.


The Botanical Garden is not the only place in the Seychelles where these good-natured giants live. Nature lovers should definitely visit the Curieuse Marine National Park, where they also have ample opportunities to meet Aldabra turtles , rare birds and plants.

By the way, bird watching is a very popular activity in the Seychelles. The Veuve Nature Reserve, located on the island of La Digue , offers ideal conditions for this type of leisure activity. Its calling card is the famous Seychelles black paradise flycatcher.

Fans of long walks will certainly be interested in Morne Park on the island of Mahe, offering an extensive network of trails over 15 kilometers long.

And lovers of beautiful panoramic views should look into Praslin National Park - the second largest land park in the Seychelles. The park includes the UNESCO World Heritage Site Vallee de Mai and offers several hiking trails, as well as a wide range of scenery and viewpoints.
