Monthly Climate Averages for Desroches Seychelles

 

Sightseeing:

This coral island stands majestically on a submerged atoll of the same name, 120 nautical miles southwest of Mahe in the Amirantes group. Desroches rises 3,000 meters out of the clear blue sea, boasting an abundant fish life and surrounded by approximately 50 nautical miles of reef to explore. The island has a coconut plantation and small agricultural settlement and enjoys a similar weather pattern as the rest of Seychelles in general, sunny all year round, with occasional warm showers.

Swim and snorkel in the warm, sparkling clear water. The long stretch of beach is also ideal for taking a walk. Whether in or out of the water, sun protection is essential. If snorkeling, it may be a good idea to wear plastic shoes to protect your feet from the coral and a T-shirt to avoid sunburn. There are no tourist facilities on the island.
