There are few more idyllic images than the gently breaking waves and a white sand beach. This is why the Indian Ocean is regarded so highly. Island hopping around the Seychelles, natural wildlife tours in Mauritius or just relaxing in a hammock off the coast of Sri Lanka.

The Indian Ocean gives the opportunity to skim along endless beaches and island hop from one idyllic setting to another. It is packed with not only eclectic marine marvels, but also myriad cultural experiences. Which means that, when it comes to choosing the best time to visit the Indian Ocean, there is no one easy answer. From the Maldives to Mauritius, the Seychelles to Sumatra or Mozambique to Madagascar, Indian Ocean holidays take you on a ride through the whole salty gamut of sultry, sublime and steamy seascapes.


The best time to sail the Indian ocean is May, with it being especially picturesque in Sri Lanka between both monsoons and also very quiet. Although if you want to combine a beach holiday with the wildlife in Yala National Park, February until June is perfect, as water levels are low and the wildlife comes out.

Take advantage of what these stunning island have to offer and spend some time finding the areas you prefer to make planning the next holiday even easier.


The main islands of the Seychelles are Praslin, La Digue and Mahe, all of them featuring stunning tropical beaches, superb coral reefs, beautiful weather, and exciting wildlife. This is a must see island for anyone sailing in these waters. Also often regarded as a paradise on Earth, the island-country of Maldives lies in the Laccadive Sea, in the southwest of Sri Lanka. Glamorous, quixotic, and utterly spectacular.
