The exceptional location of Félicité Island outside of the cyclone belt offers virtual perpetual summer. The heaviest rainfall is often from December through February, although the sun plays a juxtaposition with the wet and enhances the lush foliage even more so, and the rain tries to limit itself to the late afternoon.
Any time is good for a vacation to the Seychelles, however there are some specific times for particular interest.
April to October
Bird Lovers - April is the breeding season for birds, while May to September is the time for sooty terns. October is a migrating season from one island to another. Flocks of birds are an awesome sight.
Mid October – mid January

Mid December – mid March
Turtle Hatchlings – Tiny turtles erupt from their nest deep in the sand and begin their life or death race to the sea.
