Highlights of Seychelles

La Digue

Scroll

Anse Source d’Argent, one of the world’s most iconic beaches with its exquisitely eroded boulders and sparkling white sand, can be easily reached on this the fourth largest of the granitic Inner Islands. Once almost deserted, the beach is now a major tourist draw with a small restaurant, two juice bars and some stalls selling handicrafts.

Lying half an hour’s ferry ride from Praslin, La Digue is reminiscent of a bygone era and more relaxed than its two bigger neighbours, Mahe and Praslin. However, during the past decade or more it has seen more hotels built and higher numbers of (mainly small electric) vehicles using its limited roads.

The island boasts rare cave swiftlets and the small Veuve Reserve protecting the rare endemic black paradise flycatcher. Island exploration is best done by hired bicycle. There is safe bathing, good snorkelling offshore, excellent diving and keen walkers can scale the highest point at Nid d’Aigles for fantastic views.
