Join us discovering the wonderful Seychelles !The islands we will visit along our route will be: Praslin - La Digue - Curieuse, Cousin, Ile St. Pierre, Ile Cocos
Who would have thought that a small island in the Seychelles Archipelago as it is La Digue housed one of the most beautiful beaches in the world? And yet it is really so.
The Anse Source d'Argent, one of the most famous beach is a dream corner, with its impressive granite rocks, symbol of the Seychelles. Source d'Argent is one of the most photographed beaches in the world. Grand Anse is quite wild and is framed by the majestic rock formations. It is often semi-deserted, it will seem to be like Robinson Crusoe on his desert island. There are no umbrellas under which to shelter, but only tiny bamboo huts to protect at least the head. The lucky few who arrive earlier will grab the few shadowy corners under the rocks.
Walking along a path of stones you can reach the other side, where the smaller beach of Petite Anse is located. The landscape is spectacular and its secluded location makes it a real postcard.
Praslin is the second largest island of the Seychelles Archipelago. Among the best attractions of the island is the Vallee de Mai, a forest declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site with the highest concentration of palm trees in Coco de Mer, Seychelles. Coco de Mer is considered the largest seed in the world. The most beautiful and famous bays of Praslin are Anse Lazio certainly the most beautiful on the north-western side of the island.The sand is spectacular, the lagoon is incredibly blue and the sea is perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
Anse Consolation and Anse Marie Luise, on the southern side of the island are also very popular . Anse Georgette, in the northwestern side of the island is considered the most exclusive. It can only be reached from the sea or from the nearby hotel. A crescent of white sand and a breathtaking sea, framed by the luxuriant vegetation that surrounds it, make Anse Georgette a magical place.Anse Volbert, also known as Cote D'Or, is the main beach of Praslin where the most restaurants and services of all kinds are concentrated.
Curieuse, an island in the Seychelles archipelago, not far from Praslin, is famous for hosting giant tortoises, for its characteristic red earth and the equally famous Coco de Mer.
In 1833 Curieuse became a colony of lepers, until 1965 and the ruins of the leper colony as well as the residence of the former doctor Anse St. Joseph, an educational center and the museum are still visible today.Finally in 1979 the island was declared Marine National Park: today it is the home of about 500 giant tortoises of Aldabra, 300 of which live at the Ranger station and about 200 in the wild. Crystal clear sea, fine white sand, but above all giant tortoises in freedom. With these premises, the island of Curieuse could only be one of the essential stops on our journey to the Seychelles.
A protected natural paradise west of Praslin. Also in this case, 2.5 km off the western coast of Praslin, everything revolves around protecting the marine and terrestrial flora and the well-being of endemic creatures. Together with Aride, Cousin is the best protected island, with the highest number of endemic plants and animals.A reserve covers the area of the territory and the surrounding sea with a radius of up to 400 m. from the shore. About 300,000 birds, some giant turtles that have lived here for 100 years and few ornithologists populate the island. The fact that here animals can live undisturbed, allows us to get really close to tropical birds to the point of observing the hatching. It is also said that this is the place with the highest concentration of geckos in the world.
ILE ST. PIERRE
St. Pierre Island, is a small islet of 0.65 km², a Praslin satellite, one of the most photographed Seychelles destinations along with Curieuse Island and Cousin. St. Pierre Island is characterized by its granite coasts surrounded by palm trees caressed by the wind and shows itself as a sort of perfect circle which, seen from the other side, makes it look like a gray and green dot in the middle of the Indian Ocean. It is the ideal destination for those who want to enjoy a beautiful sunset and natural landscapes or for those who want to practice snorkeling and scuba diving or swim in these crystal clear waters.
