Family fun in the Seychelles this Easter

What better way to forget about the short, cold days of winter than to plan an Easter getaway to the island idyll of the Seychelles. Here are our top 5 reasons to visit.

Constance Lemuria, Seychelles

1. Weather
Lie on a beach and drink in the vitamin D your body’s been craving through the long winter months. April is the perfect time to visit the Seychelles as it marks the end of the islands’ rainy season ensuring perfect temperatures of around 29ºC. Revel in lots of warm sunshine while calm breezes gently rustle the palm trees.

2. Beaches
The Seychelles is home to some of the most stunning beaches in the world. At Constance Lémuria, you’ll have access to the eye-wateringly beautiful Anse Lazio, frequently cited as the most beautiful beach in the Seychelles. Unspoilt, pristine beaches lapped by warm turquoise water.

3. Family
Relax in the knowledge that your kids will love a holiday in the Seychelles as much as you. Whether you choose the elegant luxury of Constance Lémuria or the vibrant spirit of the larger Constance Ephélia there is plenty for everyone to do. Older kids will be thrilled by the choice of sports and water sports available and younger kids will love the free children’s club.

4. Diving
Explore the Indian Ocean in perfect conditions in April. As the waters calm after the rainy season divers can fully appreciate the vivid, colourful spectacle of the numerous dive sites around Lémuria and Ephélia. Water temperatures average around 29ºC at this time of year and visibility is often 30 meters or more. If you’re looking for something a bit different, try a thrilling night dive.

5. Fishing
Feel the rush of excitement and adrenalin of pursuing one of the great game fish through the crystal waters of the Seychelles. The deep-sea fishing season starts in April and runs through to October. Pit your wits and your strength against giants of the sea including tuna, barracuda, wahoo, sailfish and marlin.

And lastly… as recommended by The Sunday Times

The Sunday Times recommends Constance Ephélia as the perfect spot for Easter with the family this week. In the article, journalist Jeremy Lazell writes: ‘Ephelia sits in 300 acres of tropical gardens… with tennis, sailing, snorkeling, kayaking and a kids’ club free, four swimming pools and two white sand, palm fringed beaches that are worth the air fare alone.’
