Relax and enjoy the pristine beaches of Praslin, the second largest island in the Seychelles.
 
Be sure to visit popular Cote d'Or Beach, the longest on Praslin island with several small shops, dive and activity centres. Also visit famous Anse Lazio Beach in the north, with its picturesque granite boulders, white sands and clear turquoise waters.
 
During your stay do try and visit the beautiful Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve, which is the home of the gigantic Coco de Mer palm trees, whose enormous seeds resemble the woman's pelvis. This tropical forest also offers sanctuary to birds such as the endangered black parrot and the endemic bulbul.
Day 3
This morning we recommend transferring to Baie Sainte Anne Harbour to embark on a full day 3 Islands sailing adventure.
 
Our first stop is the small island of Cousin, with its pristine eco-system & nature reserve that is home to many rare bird. We continue to the mangroves of Curieuse Island Marine Park, which is home to over 100 giant tortoises that roam free, as well as giant crabs.
 
After a delicious BBQ lunch on board our yacht, we continuing to St. Pierre, a very small island that offers superb snorkelling opportunities, before returning to Praslin island.
 
Note: Take your swimming costume, towel, sunscreen & insect repellent. Minimum of 12 people required on the day to guarantee departure. Tour operates on a Tuesday and Thursday only.
Day 4
We suggest transferring to Baie Sainte Anne Harbour this morning to board the 15-minute ferry to pretty La Digue Island, the fourth largest granitic island in the Seychelles archipelago.
 
On arrival at La Digue harbour, you will be taken to the cycle shop to collect your bike. Your day is then free to independently explore this relatively less developed island, where the pace of life is slower and all transport is by bicycle or golf cart.
 
Be sure to visit Anse Source D'Argent, one of the most photographed beaches in the world with its gigantic granite boulders, palm trees and turquoise waters. It is a level 10-minute cycle ride or 40-minute walk from the village. When you arrive, don’t stop at the first cove but walk along the beach as there are many more coves that are less crowded.
 
Also visit Veuve Nature Reserve, which is home to the rare black paradise flycatcher, of which there are only about 100 left in the wild. From here enjoy views of La Digue's tallest peak - Belle Vue (or Eagle's Nest Mountain). Lunch is for your own account today, with the ferry back to Praslin island departing at 16.30 from La Digue harbour.

At leisure to relax on the pristine beach of your lodge on Mahe, the largest island in the Seychelles, and enjoy swimming, snorkelling and kayaking in the crystal clear turquoise waters.
 
Mahe island is home to the capital town of Victoria, where you can visit the beautiful Botanical Gardens which has indigenous giant tortoises that live for over 200 years - longer than any other creature on our planet. You can explore the island on an optional day tour that visits the fresh produce market with its wonderful array of spices and fresh fish, walk past 'Big Ben' and drive along the scenic San Soucis Road to the ruins of the missionary school at Mission Lodge (originally called Venn's Town), with wonderful views over the island.
 
An optional full day snorkelling excursion is available to Sainte Anne Marine Park. Tropical fish inhabit these coral reefs, where dolphins are sometimes seen, as well as sperm whale (July/August) and whale sharks (August to October). Leatherback and endangered hawksbill turtles nest on some of the beaches in December and January, with hatchlings emerging in March and April.

Scuba diving, deep sea game fishing and horse riding are also available.
