Independence Day

The Seychelles Independence Day celebrations, which take place at the end of June each year, are not to be missed. Visitors will be treated to impressive displays of national pride and patriotism, as public spaces and parks fill with families and fireworks light up the evening skies. The Independence Day celebrations are a key event in the Seychelles, and visitors are encouraged to wave the colourful blue, yellow, red, white and green Seychelles flag and join in the festivities. Although few travellers plan their trips to coincide with the event, those who happen to be in the Seychelles on 29 June are in for a real treat.

Date: 29 June annually
