Seychelles is generally a healthy place to visit. We do not have dangerous animals or snakes (we do have Mosquitoes) . To protect locals and visitors from such diseases as Ebola and Yellow Fever, all travellers arriving in Seychelles are required to complete a health questionnaire as part of the online Govtas application. Healthcare provision, private & government, is high by African standards. There is a Government Clinic and a pharmacy in our village and a hospital in Anse Royale.
Seychelles is generally a safe place to be. But you are advised not to leave valuables unattended on the beach if you go swimming, or on view in your hire car. Do not swim where there are signs advising strong currents. Tourists are advised not to go hiking alone or without telling your hotel.
