Activities / A Tale of 3 Islands
Experience this unique combination of Seychelles’ most famous island highlights, starting with a one hour guided tour of Cousin: a picturesque reserve for a wide range of fauna, including doves and giant tortoises, and a conservation success story that has rescued important endemic wildlife from extinction.
After relishing in the rich diversity of this pristine sanctuary, you will then visit Curieuse Island off Praslin’s northern coast, the only place apart from the Vallee de Mai where the legendary Coco de Mer grows wild. Here, you enjoy exceptional swimming in limpid waters and relaxation on white sands, before being served a tasty BBQ lunch.
After lunch, you can enjoy a one hour walk through this fascinating nature reserve, taking in the ruins of its ancient leper colony and the newly refurbished ‘Doctor’s House’, now a charming museum. The island trail meanders through a mangrove forest teeming with wildlife towards the impressive lagoon of Baie Laraie where small sharks and turtles abound and where you will also find the pen for rearing giant land tortoises in an exciting conservation project.
Leaving Curieuse behind, we will eventually make our way to the third in our trio of island jewels, St.Pierre, for the snorkelling experience of a lifetime amid crystalline waters, which abound with a myriad of fish and colourful coral formations. On the return journey you will be left the arduous task of deciding which of our three islands is the most magnificent!
