Praslin Island

With a population of 6,500 people, Praslin is Seychelles’ second largest island. It lies 45km to the northeast of Mahé and can easily be reached by short domestic flight or 45 minute ferry. A leisurely tour around the island by car will take approximately 2 hours.

Praslin is the site of the fabulous Vallée de Mai, one of Seychelles’s two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The island features truly exquisite beaches such as Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette, both appearing on the top-10 list of world’s best beaches in recent years. It is more laid back than the main island and invites for biking to remote palm-fringed beaches lapped by turquoise waters, visiting restaurants and shops on Cote d’Or which used to be a favorite haunt of pirates prior to the settlement of the islands by the French in the mid 18th century.
