We're in the process of planning our honeymoon for the first week of January but are very concerned about the rainy season. Is it still worth going this time of year? We recognize that it will most likely be hit or miss, but we'd be grateful if people who either live in the Seychelles or have been there during this timeframe could provide insight.
Could someone tell me if there's local bus available from airport to go to Le Meridien hotel (on Bel Ombré road) and Double Tree by Hilton hotel (on south coast). I believe the bus stop is just 5-10 min walk away from the airport. Also, we will be out of the airport by 8am so will the local bus service be available that early or not?
Help! we're looking to do a simple 2 week holiday probably 1 or 2 centre.
Had been considering all inc in the caribbean so you get an idea of our thinking because it's easy with the kids but we ( the adults) like to explore a bit. Have visited asia a lot in my single days but don't know the seychelles at all.
Would like to snorkel, probably a pool, would prefer 2 rooms, interconnecting or bungalow type thing.
Is it easy to eat out or expensive. Easy to day trip out? Should we hire a car or bus…
I was in the Seychelles over Christmas and have written a brief report on my trip. It includes some excursions I would particularly recommend, comments on the hotels/restaurants I stayed/ate at and some information that is not in the guidebooks which I think might be useful to travellers visiting the islands.

Hi, We are planning on spending 6 nights in Seychelles for Honeymoon. Looking for privacy, silence, good and easily acceassible beach for swimming and good service at the hotel/resort (like massage, prompt answers and good food). I have read from many forums that ocean can be rough at that time of the year. So which Island/beach and resort/hotel should we be looking into? Our budget is $6000 for 6 nights for the hotel. Any suggestions?
my GF and I are on a short stopover (3 nights) on the seychelles...
we are looking for a place to go diving (can anyone give advise?)and budget place to sleep. There is no backpackers or hostel, or is there?
Hello peeps, I am new at LP forum and really really need some advice on my trip to Seychelles. I can't choose where to stay: Praslin or La digue. I wanted to stay in La Digue as it's a smaller island and the idea of no cars, only bikes really enchanted me. If we stay in La Digue we would go to Le Domaine de L'orangerie Hotel. In the other hand, in Praslin we would need to rent a car, or take a taxi to visit other beaches.... But the hotel in Praslin would be Raffles and it seems soberb with our…
Does anyone have recent 1st hand experience of whether the cargo boat (called La Bella Seraphina) from Mahé to La Digue, via. Praslin is currently taking passengers?
I read elsewhere that it was no longer allowed due to a couple of recent accidents, but it would be good to have this confirmed (or hopefully, not confirmed - as there now don't seem to be any cheap ways to travel between islands for tourists!).
We're planning 7 days in the Seychelles in August, but on a tight budget. So far, Airbnb has helped us find basic accommodation for around £40 per night for 2.
Can anyone that's been suggest the islands we might be able to visit on a budget (i.e. with a 'cheap' ferry crossing). I believe it's only Mahé, Praslin and La Digue. Am I right? And 'cheap' means 129 Euros for tourists for a hop between the 3 (apparantly the daily cargo boat, which was cheaper, no longer takes passengers due to…
