A pinprick amongst the many Seychelles islands, La Digue is one of the largest and most populated islands in the archipelago. Found far off the coast of eastern Africa, the Seychelles are hidden gems in the Indian Ocean.
La Digue has only been populated since the late 1700’s, when the French arrived. The name of some of the settlers still remain on the island to this very day.
Today, La Digue is a melting pot of cultures. The mix of cuisines and mindsets gives the Seychelles a unique atmosphere. The warm, equatorial climate has been a major draw for centuries, and tourism is the island’s main industry. The unparalleled beaches are scattered with visitors throughout the year.
Fantastic beaches surround you, so spend some time sunbathing and enjoying the vista. The rock formations on Coco Island are some of the most exquisite around. Sailing offers a new and exciting perspective of the island, so try to get out in a boat or two during your journey.
Inland, the Veuve Nature Reserve offers abundant greenery and marine life.
Try the unique bat curry, a specialty of the island.
Ferries run from La Digue to Praslin several times a day. You can also charter a boat for added convenience. Renting a bike is a great option during your time on the island.
