The second-largest island in the Seychelles provides the perfect balance between the relative busyness of Mahe and the quaint but quiet La Digue. Praslin’s most popular attractions can be found either by the sea or under it. In fact, some travellers argue that the beaches of Praslin – such as the stunning Anse Lazio, with its crystal clear water, silky white sand, and dramatic granite boulders – are even superior to those of larger Mahe. Praslin is also a great base for a spot of island hopping with two of the best snorkelling spots in the Seychelles – Ile Felicite and Ile Cocos – located within easy reach. You can fly from Mahe to Praslin with Air Seychelles.

Vallee de Mai
This nature reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site on the island of Praslin and is estimated to be 650 million years old. Here, you can marvel at a host of rare indigenous flora and fauna including the symbol of the Seychelles, the Coco de Mer tree, and its national bird, the black parrot. Some resorts, including the Four Seasons Seychelles, organise trips to this tourist attraction.

Pick of the beaches
If you’re visiting Praslin on a romantic holiday for two, then Cote D’or is the perfect choice of beach, being both beautiful and secluded. This stunning stretch of silver sand and turquoise water is made for sharing with that special someone.

Pearls of Praslin
Not only is the Black Pearl Ocean Farm a great place to learn more about the Seychelles’ interesting history of pearl harvesting, you can also buy a pretty memento of your trip at the Black Pearl Shop next door.
