Although the crime rate is on the Seychelles is relatively small, it is advisable never to carry large sums of money, conspicuous valuables or important documents such as a passport. The most Hotels offer secure storage facilities. The same applies: none of the above-mentioned objects may be taken to the Beach to take, leave in the rental car or visibly in the hotel room.
Avoid changing your money into Seychelles Rupees (SCR) at once, calculate your daily expenses instead and only change small amounts for limited periods of time.
Do not exchange illegally, with unauthorized dealers, but at a bank, hotel or exchange office on Airport.
Please do not stay in unlicensed accommodations, as they do not offer you the expected holiday quality and can be very disappointing.
As in other tourist destinations, caution is advised when walking alone late at night. If you plan to go out alone, please inform someone at the hotel where you are going.
Please remember that the intensity of the sun is very strong in the Seychelles. Therefore, do not stay in the sun without the appropriate sun protection factor.
Please do not leave any rubbish behind. If there are no appropriate containers in the immediate vicinity, please take the rubbish to the hotel and dispose of it there.
Please resist the temptation to collect shells on the beach, as they serve as a habitat for hermit crabs. The collecting of shells is strictly forbidden in nature reserves, marine parks and other protected areas. The unique and unusual flora is beautiful, so that the next visitor can still admire it, we only ask you to look at it. For any kind of flora that is taken as a souvenir, a certificate and official export permit must be presented at the check-in at the international airport.
Be considerate of the animal world and its sensitive environment. Please walk carefully along the reefs and do not feed seabirds, mammals, land or sea turtles or disturb them in their breeding grounds.
