Stunning island... spend an incredible week here and used it as a base camp to visit neighboring island and spend the rest relaxing on Anse Lazio, Georgette, and Cote d’or beaches. Also has a mosque so perfect for Junmah too. Island is lined with Palm trees and crystals clear water just like the post cards... p.s navigate or plan your trip according to the sea currents for either seaweed on the East or West beaches.
Praslin is the second largest island in the Seychelles, in the Indian Ocean. It’s known for palm-fringed beaches. WOW!! What an experience to be in this Island!! If you want to go for Mahe, the capital it is a day long trip. You can also stay at Praslin. Hundreds of accommodations are there. Budget to almost 5 star accommodations all you can get here. If you want to go from Mahe Island you will have start early morning. Good quality modern facilities ships are there. You will have to travel for more than 02 hours in the Indian Ocean just to go Praslin from Mahe and again 02 hours to come. This is an extra ordinary journey. Before you leave you must know weather condition. If you are not comfortable and more less habituated with sea travelling then there is huge change to vomit. A very different experience. I liked it. And when you are in the Praslin, believe me, you feel like, you are in heaven. What a beauty!!! Awesome!! Gorgeous!! Speechless!! With stunning white sand beaches and lush tropical forests covering the hills, Praslin is a delight.
“The island has three main settlements - Baie St Anne, where the catamaran docks bringing passengers to and from Mahe and La Digue, Grande Anse on the south coast near the airstrip, and Anse Volbert / Cote D'Or on the north coast. None of these feel much larger than a village, but are handy places to eat or stock up on supplies at the supermarkets. Between these main towns the island is sparsely inhabited, adding to the feeling of being on your own desert island.
The beaches around the island are all dreamlike, picture postcards of white sand and shallow, turquoise seas. That said, the beaches of the south coast are extremely shallow, making swimming off Grande Anse less enjoyable than in Cote D'Or, and from May to October seaweed washes up on the southern shores making the beaches a little less appealing, while this isn't a problem on the north coast”.
Great scenic beaches. Must visit.
One of the most beautiful island in the world and the second biggest island in the Seychelles, a 15 minutes flight from Mahe with amazing beaches such as Cote D'Or and Anse Lazio, and friendly local people.
Best way to discover the island is through long walk, word of advice though carry ample water for hydration and return to your departure point using the local bus at SCR 5 for a trip.
For fishing enthusiasts many great spots for shore casting.
The best hotel with amazing food and wines to stay on Praslin is without a doubt Paradise Sun on Cote D'Or beach and nearby their is a trendy club for night time partying.
