Praslin

Seychelles, Inner Islands,

Praslin

Second largest of the Seychelles islands and lying 45km from Mahe, granitic Praslin boasts the World Heritage Site of Vallee de Mai, containing the endemic black parrot, Wright’s skink and Seychelles chameleon as well as the unique coco-de-mer palm forest. The curiously pelvis-shaped female nut is the largest on Earth, while the male palm displays similarly human-like attributes. Along the coast are secluded bays guarded by smoothly eroded granite boulders – these are some of the most beautiful beaches found anywhere. Offshore lie the nature reserves of Aride, Cousin, Curieuse and Cousine with many rare bird species, and the islet of Ste Pierre giving superb snorkelling.
