October weather and when to go
The Seychelles in October are fantastic as the trade winds have died down by this time and water temperatures remain around 29 degrees meaning you won’t want to get out of the water. This is a great time for an Indian Ocean honeymoon in the Seychelles.
Visibility is also good so you will be able to see plenty of bright coral and tropical fish while out snorkelling.
The islands of the Maldives are mostly warm and dry throughout October but there is an increased chance of rain. It is not the main peak season for the Maldives which means you may secure better hotel rates and have some beaches to yourself, but the weather could be unpredictable.
