A FEW WORDS ABOUT PRASLIN


Praslin is situated 45km to the northeast of Mahé. It’s area is 37,56 sq.km with a population of about 7000 people. Praslin is Seychelles’ second largest island, after Mahe. The island was named after the Duc de Praslin, the French Minister of Marine when the original ‘Stone of Possession’ was erected on the island in what is still known as Anse Possession.
The island is divided in 2 districts: Baie Ste Anne and Grand Anse. Praslin is a popular destination for nature lovers. It offers and maintains numerous paths to remote areas of the island where one can admire rare birds like the black Parrot. The island is mostly knowed for it unique tree baring enormous nuts. The tree can live hundreds of years and produces it’s 1st fruit after 20 years and grows up to 30 mtrs. The curious Coco de Mer, also called Cocofesses for it’s suggestive looks, is the biggest nut known in the world and is common species found only on Praslin and Curieuse islands.
Praslin owes its reputation to the beautifulVallée de Mai, one of Seychelles’ two UNESCO World Heritage Sites in addition to its magnificent sandy beaches. Amongst them, Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette, who both appear on the world’s best beaches list. Praslin is central for the departure of numerous excursions to neighboring islands (Cousin, Curieuse, St Pierre, Aride and La Digue), some of which are regarded as important sanctuaries nurturing rare species of endemic flora and fauna.
