Many attend a traditional Labour Day mass on 1 May. The service is likely to focus on the value of work or similar themes. The president of Seychelles gives a special message on this day as well.

There are often workshops and conferences held around the islands, which discuss various labour issues or try to help employers improve employee retention, productivity, and worker satisfaction.

Many take advantage of a day off to play at Seychelles’ white-sand beaches, dive or snorkel along its coral reefs, go fishing, or view wildlife such as rare indigenous birds and giant tortoises.
