What’s the weather like in the Seychelles in May?

Located in the Indian Ocean close to the equator, the Seychelles have a hot tropical climate with plenty of sunshine all year round. In May, temperatures on the islands are very warm, while it’s also a relatively dry month so any rain is heavy but short-lived. Whichever part of the Seychelles you visit, May is the perfect time of year to relax on the stunning beaches as you soak up the beautiful sunshine.


In May, the average temperature on the largest island in the Seychelles, Mahe, is 28°C with highs of  31°C in the peak of the day. After dark, temperatures dip to an average low of 25°C, so you’ll be grateful for air conditioning in your hotel at night. Around 150mm of rain is expected over the course of the month, so although it’s likely you’ll experience wet weather at this time of year, showers are usually short and sharp.
