There’s something magical about the boulder-dotted coastlines that make up the Seychelles Islands. Seychelles is a popular tourist destination and is located off the east coast of Kenya. It is also known as paradise on earth and you’ll understand why as soon as you arrive. Let Geauxing Places Travel in Denham Springs, Louisiana, plan your vacation to Seychelles. You can spend your day relaxing on any of the picture-perfect beaches or hiking the rich jungles. You can also do some diving and explore the areas of beautiful underwater life.

  • Best Time to Visit
  • Seychelles enjoys year-round sunshine so there isn’t a best time to visit. Every time is a good time. If we had to select a great month to visit, however, we’d say April through May and October to November. If you go during these months, you will experience great weather for sunbathing, scuba diving, and wildlife watching. A summertime visit in June through September will mean lots of other tourists and peak season prices. You’ll also have to book several months in advance.

  • Language
  • The official languages spoken in the Seychelles are English and Seselwa so communication will not be a problem.

  • Currency
  • Seychelles uses the Seychellois rupees (SCR) as currency and $1 will give you about 13.70 SCR. Many of the tourist spots prefer Dollars and Euros so you can keep your cash. You’ll get the best rates by withdrawing rupees from an ATM if you want to use the Seychellois rupees while on your visit but this also depends on your bank.

  • Getting Around
  • The best way to travel around is by using affordable bus services but this also depends on where you are staying. For island hopping, there are great and reliable ferry services.

  • Voltage
  • Seychelles uses the type G plug so we recommend buying a universal adapter that has surge protection. You should also use a converter for your hairdryers and hot tools. The standard voltage in Seychelles is 240V while the standard frequency is 50Hz.

  • Drinking-Water
  • The tap water in Seychelles is safe to drink but has high chlorine content so many people opt for drinking bottled water and you can too. During a visit in the summer, you might also notice that water gets turned off a few hours a day for conservation purposes.
