1. From Mahé: Praslin & La Digue Island-Hopping Tour with Lunch
Discover two of the Seychelles' most breathtaking islands on this island-hopping catamaran cruise from Mahé. Visit Vallée de Mai on Praslin and L'Union Estate on La Digue with tickets and guided tours included. Enjoy a Creole lunch onboard and stroll along some of the Seychelles' most picturesque beaches. After getting picked up from your hotel anywhere on Mahé, hop on the catamaran that will take you to Praslin, the Seychelles' second-largest island. Your first stop is Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only place in the world where the sea coconut grows naturally. Enjoy a walk along the paths of this primeval forest, listening to the rare black parrot. See for yourself why the forest is said to be the original Garden of Eden. Pay a visit to the famous Anse Lazio Beach and enjoy a stroll through its postcard-perfect sands before the crossing to La Digue. Spot dolphins and other native sea life along the way. Tuck into a delicious Creole barbeque lunch served onboard. Upon landing on La Digue, hop in a traditional ox-cart for a transfer to L'Union Estate. Enjoy a guided tour of the estate with tickets included and spot giant tortoises as well as the refurbished colonial plantation house, the filming location of "Goodby Emmanuelle." Continue your tour of La Digue in an open-sided truck, stopping at Anse Source d'Argent Beach to see for yourself why this is one of the most photographed beaches on the planet. At the end of the day, hop back on board the catamaran and get transferred back to you hotel in Mahé.
