La Digue -well served with accommodation and some tourist facilities



La Digue is the third largest inhabited island of the Seychelles in terms of population, lying east of Praslin and west of Felicite Island. A trip to the island, just 6km east of Praslin, and accessed only by daily ferries, is like stepping back in time. Colorful oxcarts still provide transport, priorities revolve around simple pleasures, and a leisurely pace prevails. Since the production of copra and vanilla declined on La Digue, a handful of hotels and guesthouses have opened. These have been joined by a few restaurants, artists’ studios and water sports operators, yet much of the island’s appealing simplicity remains. La Digue boasts one of Seychelles’ most photogenic beaches at Anse Source d’Argent, with its powder sand and pink granite boulders, as well as a genuinely traditional Creole community. The small Veuve Nature Reserve here is also home to most of the world’s 200-or-so remaining Seychelles black paradise flycatchers.La Digue -well served with accommodation and some tourist facilities in seychelles.
