Indian Ocean

Indian Ocean in September

September weather and when to go

It can still be quite difficult to see the shells on the beaches off the south coast of Seychelles in September due to seaweed being blown in by the winds. However, there are plenty of other stunning beaches with fantastic snorkelling to visit at this time. The mercury generally sits at around 27 degrees making it the perfect temperature for lounging on the beach and wandering around the island in search of birdlife.

Manta rays still remain in the waters around the Maldives so you will be able to witness these magnificent creatures when snorkelling and perhaps even when out on boat excursions. 

When not looking for rays there are some stunning species of coral to view from tree corals and sea fans to the peculiar bubble corals which look like fish eggs.

The weather is particularly hot and balmy in Mauritius in September and if it does rain it will probably only be short showers or evening rains so this will be a pleasant time to visit. As the weather is good you can either relax on the spectacular beaches or go in search of Indian Ocean wildlife such as mongooses and crab-eating macaques.

The overseas French department, Reunion, has good weather year round so hiking and nature walks are great activities whenever you travel. The island is home to over 90 bird species too so keep your eyes peeled for tropical birds flitting through the trees. September is the best time of year for humpbacks in Reunion so let us know if you want to join this adventure and we can plan your Reunion safari.
