La Digue

Life on La Digue is somewhat at a slower pace than Praslin. The use of motor vehicles are strictly controlled, leaving bicycles and ox-carts as the prominent means of transport. La Digue is famous for its brand of creole architecture, boat building and cultivation of the aromatic vanilla pods.

It is the only home in the world for the very rare Paradise Flycatcher bird for which a special reserve has been built.

But perhaps what fascinates visitors most is the tranquillity it offers. For amateur photographers Anse Source d’Argent is a paradise for matching the contours of the shaped boulders to the beauty of the human body. For swimmers Anse Patates is ranked as the best beach.

La Digue is the fourth largest inhabited island of the Seychelles, lying east of Praslin and west of Félecité Island. It has a population of about 2,000 people, who mostly live in the west coast villages of La Passe (linked by ferry to Praslin [30 minutes] and Mahé) and La Réunion. There is no airstrip but can be reached by helicopter from Mahé. It has an area of 10 sq km. La Digue is named after a ship in the fleet of French explorer Marc-Joseph Marion du Fresne, who visited the Seychelles in 1768.

Today the island's main industry is tourism and is known for its beaches especially Anse Source d'Argent. In former times copra and vanilla production were mainstays of the local economy; which is commemorated in the island's museum. In the island's interior is Veuve Nature Reserve, home of the rare Black Paradise Flycatcher, of which there are only about 100 in existence. La Digue's tallest peak is also in the central part of the island, Belle Vue (Eagle's Nest Mtn) which is over 300 meters above sea level.
