PRASLIN, SEYCHELLES

PRASLIN, THE SECOND LARGEST GRANITE ISLAND OF SEYCHELLES

The second-largest granite island of Seychelles is Praslin, about 40 kilometres from Mahe. It is 15 minutes by Air Seychelles service, which offers several flights a day. By boat, it takes about one hour with the catamaran “Catcoco” or “Praslin Express”(2 to 3 times a day).The Island has a population of about 6,000. There are several excellent hotels and Guest House.

Praslin is not as mountainous as Mahe – the highest point being 330 metres – but it has similarly great granite outcrops surrounded by beautiful beaches with crystal-clear waters which are so typical of Seychelles.

The majestic bays and beaches alternate with smaller ones on which, even in the busy season,you could believe you were the only person on the island.

FANTASTIC GRANITE MASSES FORM STRIKING BACKGROUNDS

Anse Volbert, or Cote d’Or, to the east of the island, is particularly beautiful, with its pure white sand. Hotels such as Berjaya Praslin Beach offer a wide variety of excursions facilities.

Fantastic granite masses form striking backgrounds to the beaches of Anse Bois de Rose, Anse Boudin and Anse Kerlan, where the five-star Lemuria Resort has an 18-hole championship golf course. At the northernmost tip of the island, Anse Lazio is excellent for both swimming and snorkelling.

Grand Anse, on the west coast, has an equally beautiful beach for lazing about, but the waters are sometimes heavy with seaweed and, because it is very shallow over the coral, swimming is difficult at low tide.

SEYCHELLES
AS PURE AS IT GETS

Far from any continental land mass, the islands of Seychelles have been linked to a string of pearls set in azure waters of the Indian Ocean.
