Home to some of the Seychelles' finest beaches, Praslin Island offers visitors more than just sand and sea.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Petite Anse Kerlan and Anse Kerlan Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Grande Soeur island and Cote d’Or Beach. The adventure continues: take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports, get outside with Ilot Saint-Pierre, trek along Le Glacis Noir, and enjoy the sand and surf at Anse La Blague.
