Personal safety     
Seychelles enjoys a low level of crime.  Nevertheless, it is still advisable to take some routine precautions to ensure your personal safety and that of your possessions.

Walking alone on isolated beaches, nature trails, swimming alone or leaving yachts unlocked at their moorings is not advisable.

It is also not recommended to carry large sums of money or valuables on your person, to leave them unguarded in your room or in the boot of your car or to advertise the fact that you possess them.
Most accommodation establishments offer room or reception safes to secure valuables and visitors are advised to take advantage of this service.


Throughout Seychelles the voltage is 220-240 volts AC 50 Hz. Seychelles uses the British standard square three-pin, 13 amp sharp electric plug.  Visitors from countries other than the United Kingdom are advised to bring their own adaptors.


Tap water meets W.H.O. (World Health Organization) specifications and is safe to drink nation-wide.
Because tap water is chlorinated, visitors are advised to drink bottled water but there is no imperative to avoid soft drinks, alcoholic drinks and ice.
If you are in any way concerned about drinking water, several different brands of bottled water are widely available in shops, restaurants and hotel bars.
