A FEW WORDS ABOUT LA DIGUE

La Digue (10,1 km2, about 2000 residents) lies 43km to northeast of Mahe and is a close neighbour to Praslin (6kms). La Digue’s tallest peak culminates at 333 m . La Digue is the fourth largest island in Seychelles, just behind Silhouette, but third island after Praslin, in terms of population.
La Digue was first discovered in 1744 by Lazare Picault. Initially named «L’Île Rouge» because of the red reflections of the granite at sunset it was renamed La Digue the name of a vessel from the
explorer Marc-Joseph Marion Dufresne’s fleet, sent by the French to explore Seychelles’ granitic islands in 1768.
The small village of La Passe is the center of activity on the island. La Digue is accessible by ferry (20 min. from Praslin, Baie Ste Anne jetty) or helicopter. The most popular means of transport are cycling, walking and the typical oxcart. Cars are very limited.
La Digue offers some of the best lanscapes of the Seychelles. Every visitor will forever remember Anse Source d’Argent with it’s lagoon, calm and shalow water set in a spectacular granite bolder garden. La Digue’s gentle way of living is one of the jewels of the island. The second is the ornithological reserve, sheltering 2 rare species: soft water turtle (soupap) and the last couples of «black paradise flycatcher» ( ‘Veuv’ in créole).
For those who cherish nature you will be overwhelmed by the exceptional flora (orchids, vanilla, takamakas, hibiscus, nepenthes etc...). A walk up the summit of Nid d’Aigle is a must. You will see spectacular views of the Ocean and the nearby islands.
Snorkeling lovers will find all they need at Anse Sévère . Deep sea diving remains one of the most popular activity of the island.
The satellite islands (Félicité, Marianne, Sisters) of La Digue are ideal places for boat excursions. Do not miss Coco, a magic location.
