Are you looking for amazingly beautiful, but isolated and deserted anchorages, or wanting to discover heavenly islands with charming inhabitants? The solution: the Seychelles, a string of countless islands among the most beautiful in the world, lost in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
Formalities : for EU and North Americans citizens : valid passport.
Weather : The best period : All the year round. No hurricanes.
Cruising : No great difficulties during the day. Navigation is on sight and the buoyage is, for the most part, accurate.
Languages : English, French, Creole
Provisions : This is a problem in the Seychelles. All food is imported and therefore (very) expensive. Stock up with enough food at the start of the cruise, as afterwards it is difficult to find supplies…
Time difference : +2H in summer ; +3H in winter, compared to Paris.
Money : Seychelles Rupee (+/-0,15 euros). The ‘beach exchange’ is much more advantageous than the banks…but we didn’t say anything!
