Praslin & La Digue
Praslin & La Digue Victoria Reviews
Jul 21, 2007
If you are lucky to visit the Seychelles for your holidays I would like to recommend you some trips and excursions.
I stayed in Seychelles for around 10 months and I worked as a Guest Relation Officer in one of the 5* hotels over there. So also for all other questions please do not hesitate to contact me at any time.
So please find here the must DO's while you are in Seychelles:
- Visit the neighbour islands Praslin and La Digue (reachable by ferry or plane from the main island Mahe). The plane will take around 15 minutes to reach Praslin. By ferry it will take you around 1 hour. Ensure that the sea is not too rough, otherwise you might be seasick by reaching the islands!
On Praslin you will be able to visit the famous "Vallée de Mai", which is a kind of a tropical rainforest, where the worlds biggest coconut (Coco de Mer) is growing.
Continue your full day excursion with another ferry to the next island La Digue and see the most beautiful beach of the world, which is the "Anse Source D'Argent". White sandy beach, with amazing granit rocks and palm trees. The Seychellois are very, very friendly and helpful as well.
The flight to Praslin will cost around 120 Euro per person (roundtrip), the ferry to La Digue another 20 Euro and the trip from Mahe to Praslin by ferry around 90 Euro per person for the round trip.
- Beside taking the "official" transport system you can also reach most of the islands with a private yacht or a helicopter. Depending on the distance, the helicopter will cost between 600 and 3500 Euro for 4 persons.
A private yacht can take up to 8 people (depending on it's size) and will cost between 1600 Euro (big game fishing boat) to 2200 Euro for a full day trip (8 hours, including all meals, softdrinks and snorkeling equipment). Detailed information are available with Helicopter Seychelles or with Water World Yacht Charter on Mahe.
