Step back in time to a simpler way of life at mythically beautiful La Digue. The island’s unspoiled coastline is a series of crescent, pink sand beaches and coves strewn with giant, sculpted granite boulders. No cars clutter the island’s serene calm. Instead, take a bicycle along quiet lanes, past corrugated iron shacks and colonial architecture, into the hills cloaked with verdant jungles and lush vanilla and coconut plantations, or head for the gin-clear waters on the coast studded with achingly beautiful beaches.

Destination Highlights

  • Visit L'Union Estate and feed the islands oldest inhabitants - the giant tortoise
  • Set your sights upon some of the most picturesque beaches the Seychelles is famous for
  • Step back in time twenty years as bicycles and horse and carts are still the preferred choice of transport on this rustic island

Beautiful Beaches

Famous Anse Source isn’t just like something out of the movies, it really is from the movies. This paradise beach was the sight of the film Castaway, as well as the tropical setting for commercials for Bounty and Bacardi. Framed by towering, sculpted granite boulders tumbling toward the crystalline sea and surrounded by colourful reefs it isn’t hard to see why this is one of the most photographed beaches in the world.

Veuve Reserve

La Digue’s beaches are picturesque, unspoiled, and postcard perfect. Nowhere is the water more translucent, the sand so silky and white. The stunning beaches are further enhanced by the gigantic, pink, granite rocks separating the coastline into small beaches and coves. On the southeast of the island head for the beaches of Grand Anse, Petite Anse, and Anse Cocos; head to the northern tip of the island for snorkelling at Anse Patates or to the reef-protected waters of Anse Fourmis.

L’Union Coconut Plantation

The dense forests of Veuve Reserve are home to the Black Paradise Flycatcher, a rare, beautiful bird endemic to the Seychelles. Hike the trails through the reserve to see these birds, as well as rare Swiftlets and sea turtles. The Veuve Information Centre offers short guided tours of the reserve to point out the rare birds and their nesting sites. They also give guided nature tours on trails outside of the reserve upon request.

La Passe

This previous coconut plantation is now a museum, preserving the importance of coconuts to the island. The museum features demonstrations of coconut processing techniques, an ancient cemetery, and a guest house. There is also a community of giant tortoises that live here.
