La Digue is the third largest inhabited island of the Seychelles in terms of population, and lying east of Praslin and west of Felicite Island.
Arriving at La Digue feels like sailing straight into a painting, brimming with brush strokes of blue, green and tan. The beaches here are spectacular, particularly Grand Anse and Anse Source d’Argent, which is strewn with pink granite rocks. There are very few cars here, so travelling by bike or by ox cart is the way to go.
The majority of visitors to La Digue arrive by boat at the quaint jetty at La Passe. Frequent ferries make the 15-minute crossing from Praslin. It is a popular, unspoilt destination for people wishing for a taste of the traditional Seychelles. Nowhere else is the water more transparent or the sand so white. Because of its diversity and beautiful beaches strewn with pink granite rocks, La Digue is perhaps the most mythical island in the Seychelles. If your time and budg4et does not allow for an overnight on La Dique, we recommend you do this as a day excursion. Please discuss this with your Travel designer.
