Praslin Island

About Praslin Island

Second in size to Mahe, Praslin Island in the Seychelles is an appealing mix of soft sand beaches, emerald green hills and a number of sheltered valleys that includes Vallee de Mai – a World Heritage Site and home to an extraordinary primeval palm forest.

Life on Praslin Island moves at a pace that falls somewhere between the relative bustle of Mahe and the sleepiness of next-door La Digue Island. The main tourism centre is Anse Volbert (also known as Côte d’Or) where a collection of hotels, restaurants, shops and bars gives this safe swimming beach a lively atmosphere – at least by Seychelles standards! The island is also home to the only 18-hole golf course in the archipelago, making a Praslin Island holiday a shoo-in for golfers.
