The second largest island in the Seychelles, but significantly quieter than Mahe, Praslin’s landscape is lush and tropical and this sets the languorous mood that is ideal for a beach holiday. There are picture-perfect white sands, crystal-clear emerald waters and the welcome relief provided by the shade of palm trees. Explore the forested interior, ascend the peaks for panoramic views, visit the best dive and snorkelling spots, marvel at the abundant birdlife and indulge in Seychellois cuisine and watersports. Who could ask for more? Nook a Praslin beach hotel and relax; you’re on holiday!
Praslin – At the Vallée de Mai you can see the rare coco de mer palms growing in the wild and appreciate their claim to fame as the trees that produce the most ‘erotically’ shaped produce. The best beach can be found at the island’s northwest tip: Anse Lazio’s lagoon is an unbelievably deep blue and offers fantastic snorkelling just offshore.
Curieuse Island – Under a mile from Praslin is this island that serves as a breeding centre for giant Aldabra tortoises. Book a hotel in Praslin and you’ll be within easy reach of this beautiful natural space.
Cousin Island – Not much further away this nature reserve is home to seven species of sea birds, including fairy terns, white-tailed tropic birds and two varieties of shearwaters. On a forested island measuring less than one mile in diameter there are believed to be over 300,000 birds perching on the branches of the trees.
La Digue – The island of La Digue is quieter than either Mahe or Praslin and it boasts the world-famous beach of Anse Source d’Argent. This dream tropical beach has the clearest emerald waters, finest sugar-white sands and the glacis rocks that set it all off have been smoothed over many years by the gentle caresses of the waves.
The tropical beaches are achingly beautiful but the riotous colour of the corals and abundant marine life under the waters is just as stunning. Take a boat trip around the island to watch the sun set romantically over the palms or to locate your perfect spot for sunbathing and swimming. Spot the birdlife at Cousin Island, admire the giant tortoises at Curieuse Island or get lost in the wonder of the forests of the Vallée de Mai.
The diving and snorkelling around this island is amongst the best in the world, but there are plenty of other watersports to enjoy too, such as sailing, yachting, windsurfing and jet skiing. Sunset cruises are a great way to sample the local Seychellois cuisine in atmospheric surrounds whilst deep sea fishing trips could see you catching a giant barracuda, sailfish or marlin. Of course, the main thing to do here is very little, indeed: throw your towel down at the beach of your choice, grab a cocktail and relax!
