Praslin Island

Seychelles' second largest island of Praslin is almost a world away from bustling Mahé. It's a magnificent island paradise, offering world-class beaches and stunning scenery. Delve into the ancient palm forest of Praslin National Park (Vallée de Mai) and uncover the world's heaviest nut, the Coco de Mer, and see the black parrot. Or, travel by boat to meet Aldabra tortoises at Curieuse Marine National Park.

Apart from its unique fauna and flora, Praslin island has some great walking trails and is home to some of Seychelles most spectacular beaches. With its small population and gentle pace of life, it is ideal for a laid-back Seychelles honeymoon or holiday. There are numerous hotels and resorts dotted around the coastline and Praslin also has Seychelles' only 18-hole championship golf course at Constance Lemuria Resort. Praslin also makes an ideal base from which to make day excursions to the neighbouring island of La Digue as well as several other picturesque small islands including Curieuse, Cousin, Coco and Sisters

While Praslin's interior is spectacular, so too is its coastline and the islands found just offshore. Explore an underwater world with snorkelling and diving or take a boat trip to Curieuse Marine National Park and meet Aldabra tortoises or see the breeding ground of hawksbill and green sea turtle. Exclusive hotels make the most of Praslin's breath-taking scenery, with coastal situations opening out onto unspoilt beaches and swaying palms - the luxury of the hotels themselves eclipsed by the luxury of their natural setting.
