Praslin Holidays

Praslin is the Seychelles answer to the Garden of Eden: velvet jungles tangle in a gentle breeze with graceful ribbons of pristine, powder-soft sands and tropical bays caressed by topaz waters.

A gem floating in the Seychelles' crown, dig your toes into the silk sand of Anse Lazio, consistently voted the best beach in the Seychelles, and explore verdant forests that are home to a wonderful array of wildlife. For the more active traveller, Praslin is also home to 18-hole Championship golf courses, perfect for a round or two. Or, simply sit back and enjoy paradise; whatever takes your fancy.

Hop between Praslin and Mahe for the perfect Seychelles holiday combination. 

Destination Highlights
