          Praslin


          Use the drop-down menu below to explore Praslin.

          Seychelles' second largest island, Praslin, lies 45 kilometres (24 miles) northeast of Mahé. It is ideally situated for holidaymakers wishing to island-hop to a handful of nearby exotic destinations such as Chauve Souris, Cousin, Curieuse, St. Pierre, La Digue and the Aride bird reserve.

          It is also a haven for nature lovers seeking rare endemic species such as the black parrot for which Praslin is the last habitat. Praslin's original name of 'Isle de Palme' bears eloquent testament to its reputation as home to the Vallée de Mai UNESCO World Heritage Site, one of only two places in the world where the famous Coco-de-mer grows wild on palms 40 meters tall and some 200 years old.

          The island is divided by a ridge of hills running from east to west, intersected by a road that leads through the Vallée de Mai and possesses some of the most striking beaches of the archipelago such as Anse Lazio, widely acclaimed to be the most beautiful beach on earth. Praslin stands at the forefront of Praslin’s tourism industry with its rich assortment of hotels and guesthouses.

          Vallee de Mai is a UNESCO World Heritage Site once believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden. This magical place offers a forest of larger than life palms which play host to an array of rare and endemic species. Discover the Coco de Mer Palm and its iconic seed, the largest on earth, as you take a leisurely guide through this awe-inspiring primaeval forest.

          The pristine beach at the world-famous Anse Lazio boasts white sands and clear waters, fringed by lush vegetation and bordered by magnificent granite boulders. Here you can swim, snorkel or relax on the soft sands of one of the Seyshelles finest strands.

          Discover and explore La Digue, one of Seychelles’ most charming islands, at your own pace.  Arrive by ferry and receive your bicycle at the jetty for a day of self-discovery on beautiful La Digue and create your own itinerary. La Digue offers relaxed island culture, spectacular beaches, an abundance of Creole architecture, a Nature Reserve and Anse Source D’Argent – the most photographed beach in the world.

          The tropical climate of the Seychelles and temperatures are between 25°C and 30°C throughout the year, making this an ideal destination for sun worshippers and beach lovers. The rainy season starts in October and ends in March, with January being the wettest month - during this period, higher temperatures set in. The dry and slightly cooler season extends from April to September bringing winds from the south-east. The transitional months between each season - April to late June and mid-September to mid-November offers dry, sunny weather with little wind.
