Home to some of the Seychelles' finest beaches, Praslin Island offers visitors more than just sand and sea.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Cote d’Or Beach and Petite Anse Kerlan. Get in touch with nature at Grande Soeur island and Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve. And it doesn't end there: head off the coast to Curieuse Island, get outside with Fond Ferdinand, kick back and relax at Anse Possession, and stroll through Anse La Blague.

La Digue Island remains a relatively unknown vacation destination, offering very few tourist facilities and an exotic though largely undeveloped coastline.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Petite Anse and Anse Patates Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Anse Source D'Argent and Spiagge di Anse Marron. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Grand Anse, tour the pleasant surroundings at Anse Grosse Roche Beach, and step off the mainland to explore Felicite Island.

For where to stay, more things to do, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the La Digue Island trip planner.
