Safety Tips for your Seychelles Vacation

Beware of pickpockets

Although the crime rate is relatively low in Seychelles, it is best not to carry valuables with you while traveling. It is always a good idea to store your valuables securely in the safety box of your hotel room.


Don’t swim too far out while bathing in the sea. Currents can change quickly and are often difficult to gauge. If swimming is prohibited in a specific area, you should definitely follow the rules, even if other tourists are not. A calm sea can be deceptive! Avoid swimming at deserted beaches.

Pirates ships off the coast of Seychelles

While there have been some pirate attacks near the Seychelles coast, travelers do not need to worry about safety. Island hopping between popular destinations has not been affected in Seychelles. An attack on a tourist boat is highly unlikely, especially because any known attacks have taken place hundreds of miles away from the archipelago.

Don’t be afraid of sharks

Shark attacks are extremely rare in the Seychelles, however, do check with your hotel or your Trip Coordinator about the current situation.

One of the very best travel experiences I have ever had. We even got updates once at 3 am! He also made one change in one day’s itinerary to accommodate our wishes which was very wonderful. For business, I have traveled to Europe, Russia, all over Asia and South Africa but was blown away by all the beautiful sites in Argentina and Chile.
