Exploring Praslin & La Digue in one day
This special trip takes you to the mystical home of our Coco de Mer nut – ‘The Vallée de Mai’ a UNESCO World Heritage site on Praslin Island. A walk through this mysterious palm forest with its pure invigorating air and natural beauty is unlike any other. One could be easily forgiven for assuming that it could have been the legendary Garden of Eden. The tour carries with a short stop at Anse Lazio, one of the best beaches in the world before going back to the jetty.
Taking the boat to La Digue island for a sumptuous Creole style lunch. An informative visit to the timeless L’Union Estate, where the old agricultural processing method is preserved. The traditional copra mill built to extract virgin coconut oil following the laborious dehusking of the coconut and extraction of the flesh from the shell. A quick stop by the Art gallery in the basement of the iconic Grann Kaz, a historical 19th century French Colonial Plantation House where the famous movie from 1977 ‘Goodbye Emmanuel’ was filmed. Meet the giant tortoise before passing through the vanilla plantation on your way to Anse Source D’Argent.
If you haven’t done so yet, it’s time to pull out your camera for some incredible pictures of Anse Source D’Argent reputed for its picturesque boulders molding into the crystal clear waters gently lapping at powder like sandy beach.
