La Digue Holidays

Mythically beautiful, pink-hued beaches

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.
