The Seychelles weather is temperate – although the islands tend to experience a lot of rain between November and January – with calm transition periods that allow for clear visibility for deep-sea divers throughout the year. The Seychelles climate is indicative of tropical islands close to the equator in that they often experience brief showers followed by warm and pleasant sunshine. Owing to the fact that the temperature seldom rises above 31º C, Seychelles beaches provide comfortable and sunny island vacation spots, even in the humid months between December and April. As most of the islands are located outside of the cyclone belt, high winds are rare, while southeast trade winds blow regularly between the months of May and November. As a result, these islands are pleasant beach holiday destinations no matter what time of the year you choose to visit.
The Seychelles islands (116 in total) provide adventure and leisure activities, including hiking, swimming, diving, snorkeling, windsurfing, boating, cycling and fishing. For example, Bird Island is renowned for its abundance of birdlife, Curieuse is home to hundreds of Aldabra Giant Tortoises, and Fregate hosts one of the world’s most celebrated beaches: Anse Victorin.
The Seychelles island archipelago is made up of two clusters, an inner and an outer ring, with the distinct physical attributes of either granite or coral bases. The Aldabra Group, renowned for the Aldabra Atoll, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-preserved natural environments in the world, comprises 17 591km² of the outer cluster. Exploring the sparsely populated outer islands can give visitors a chance to experience a life that remains largely unaffected by the modern world.
Mahé, La Digue and Praslin are among the inner, populated islands, which host some of the world’s most sought-after beaches. These include the Beau Vallon beach on Mahé, Anse Source D’Argent on La Digue and Anse Lazio on Praslin. Islands nearby Mahé that offer excellent opportunity for wildlife viewing during a Seychelles holiday include Saint Anne, Cerf Island, Long Island, Round Island, Moyenne and Ile Cachée.
The history of the Seychelles has been prophetic of the rich ethnicity and love for Creole traditions that exist on the islands today. Having broken away from the Pangean super continent approximately 180 million years ago, the Seychelles drifted 1500 kilometres to form the glittering archipelago off the east coast of Africa that we know today. Remaining untouched for millennia and visited only by early Arabian navigators, and possibly Phoenician or Polynesian sailors, the Seychelles islands thrived in isolation.
In 1501, the Portuguese navigator, Juan de Nova, made the first recorded landfall, and in 1502 Vasco de Gama named that land the Islands of the Admiral. Through three long centuries, the Seychelles islands remained unvisited until the French established a settlement in 1770, followed by British settlers in 1814. The islands achieved independence from the Commonwealth in 1976, and today thrive under multi-party democratic rule.
Eden Island is home to a variety of island properties whose design elements were chosen to reflect the Seychelles’ local culture and natural surroundings.
