Excite your senses on Praslin Island

No doubt visitors to Praslin island, home of Paradise Sun, come for the rest and relaxation. However, the island offers many unique and interesting experiences that will tantalise your senses. Here are some of our favourite activities:

SIGHT

Head to Anse Lazio beach to view what is considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world according to TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice. Think soft, white sand and azure ocean. Don’t forget to take your goggles and snorkel.

TASTE

For local, inexpensive cuisine that is bursting with flavour try La Goulue in Anse Volbert. Quickly becoming an institution on the island, head there early to avoid waiting for a table – it fills up fast! Try the Octopus Curry, you won’t be disappointed.

SOUND

Try to distinguish the sounds of the Black Parrot in Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve. Endemic to Praslin Island, the Black Parrot is also the national bird of the Seychelles. Rumour has it there is even a white, black parrot!

TOUCH

Get your hands on Made-In-Seychelles souvenirs from Albert & Mickey Durand’s curio shop in Baie Ste Anne. Browse the many interesting and collectable items packed into the small shop…and If you’re lucky, be serenaded by guitar-playing Albert.

SMELL

Smell the fresh ocean air on a short 10-minute ferry ride to La Digue. Once there, hire a bike to explore the small island. Stop in at the old coconut plantation L’Union on your way to Anse Source d’Argent.
