Group of around 115 big and small islands but 3 of them are the major ones.
- La digue.
Out of these MAHE is one of the biggest with an international airport also the capital victoria is in MAHE,followed by praslin and la digue which is the small one . Cruise transfers are needed for the visit to praslin and la digue.
From MAHE Airport we took a taxi to reach jetty.Our cruise took 1 hour to praslin and another 20 minutes to la digue. People say that la digue is a small island agree but not that small that you carry you own luggage to the accommodation, so my advise is to choose an accommodation near the jetty.There are plenty of accommodation near to the jetty and all over the island but most of them are the budget ones.Budget accommodation here in seychelles starts at 100 USD per day.People have there different opinions regarding sightseeing around the island ,but one has to decide how to spend your stay at island.
So after early morning breakfast we took a BUS that was the only option available for excursions around the island.Other option are bicycles and by walk.FIRST we went to Grand Anse it is a Long shore beach with strong currents sometimes ,so we decided not go very deep rather enjoy at shallow. Snorkelling is not possible there.Long stretch of the beach shore makes it very beautiful.
Next we visited a park that is a home for many giant turtles some of them are 100 years old we also make the feed some herbs that are available there only. Seychelles is home for giant turtles they are in abundance.
As we walked further there are two beaches Anse Source D argent and Anse La Re union both share same shore and both are equally beautiful , good for snorkelling the sea water is so clear that one can easily see fishes while walking into the sea as they move fearless. We spent two hours minimum there as it was first experience for us. The crystal clear water makes this beach memorable one,my personal favourite. A small cafe outside the beach area with plenty creole veg and non- veg options.We enjoyed and also liked the creole cuisine as the vegetarian menu was also delicious.
In evening we visited the cementry side of the island it is also good but the best/crux of the La Digue we have visited earlier.
There are many islands neary buy but we limited ourself to Ladigue this time as we planned only to remain at La digue.
ALL cuisines are avilable in La digue. For indian food inside Le relax hotel there is a restaurant.
