La Digue Island, Seychelles


The fourth largest island in the Seychelles, La Digue extends to an area of 10 sq km and lies to the east of Praslin Island. It supports a population that used to survive on fishing, copra and vanilla production but nowadays tourism is the name of the game and the whole island is geared to providing a memorable holiday experience. 

The beaches, especially Anse Source d'Argent and Anse Pierrot are fabulous, often set off by tumbled rock formations that seem like dramatic granite sculptures. there are plenty of hidden coves to discover, too.

Focal points are the harbor at La Passe on the west coast and L'Union Estate where traditional activities like copra production and boat building are still practised.  

La Digue's interior rises to Eagle's Nest Mountain, a peak that is 300 m above sea level and rewards the active visitor with wonderful views. This is enchanting tropical paradise.
