Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Anse Patates Beach and Petite Anse. Visit Anse Severe and Grand Anse for some beach relaxation. There's more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Anse Coco Beach and tour the pleasant surroundings at Anse Source D'Argent.

For more things to do, reviews, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our La Digue Island trip planner.

Jeddah, Saudi Arabia to La Digue Island is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and ferry. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and ferry.
