Full description

See Praslin Island and La Digue Island in Seychelles on this day tour. See Praslin Island's prehistoric forest and relax on the beaches of La Digue. Visit the Vallée de Mai and L'Union Estate Farm, and enjoy a Creole lunch.

After pickup, take off from Seychelles to Praslin. Relax and enjoy a scenic ride along the way.

Arrive at Praslin, where you'll be transported to the Vallée de Mai. This prehistoric forest is home to the Coco de Mer, the double lobed coconut. Discover this magical island of rare, endemic flora and fauna. Before moving on to the second part of the day, stop for lunch at a local hotel. Located at the Curieuse National Marine Park, this spot provides a rare over-water dining experience.

Then, head off to the pier to take a short ferry ride to La Digue Island. With its small number of inhabitants, La Digue remains the most untouched amongst the three frequently visited islands in the area.

Begin with a visit to L’Union Estate and learn about farm life. See the copra mill, giant tortoises’ pen, and the time-honored plantation house.

Spot the giant boulders of granite nestled on the pristine beach of Anse Source D’ Argent. Go swimming or snorkeling in its rippling azure waters before being dropped back off in Seychelles.

Our guide Tina was fantastic! However the itinerary was a little cramped, and people getting back late gave us less “free time” at the beaches sadly. Overall the trip was great and we would recommend.

definitely recommendable but you will get tired after this day, it's a lot for one day but well worth it!

Nice excursion, only one regret, having had to stay in the boat, because our ticket did not allow you to be outside
