What to do in November in the Seychelles

  • Festivals. November is the time for celebrations such as Halloween or the Seychelles Creole Festival. This is an opportunity to immerse yourself in the local culture and see its diversity.

The main events of the festival take place on the islands of Praslin and Mahe.
  • Try Creole cuisine. One of the most popular dishes in the Seychelles is grilled fish. This is not surprising, because the Indian Ocean abounds in tropical fish. Many are sold at local markets. If you want to try an exotic dish, try shark chutney. This is a specialty of Seychelles, which is prepared from shark meat with bilimbi, local fruits, lime, onion and turmeric.
  • The archipelago also surprises with exotic fruits. For example, a huge variety of bananas and a unique breadfruit tree. There is a particularly rich selection of fruits in hotels. Don't miss the opportunity to sample the variety of tropical fruits in Seychelles for a true taste of paradise! One of the most interesting ways of preparing fruits in the Seychelles is using green fruits. For example, green papaya is cooked in the famous vegetable gratin, and green bananas are cooked together with fish, baked in coconut milk. If you like juicy fruits, then you will love the local salads with chutney - fruit puree, seasoned with oil, salt and pepper. And if you're looking for something a little different, try breadfruit, a large green fruit that's used in many culinary preparations.
