TWO ISLANDS MELODY – FRIDAYS

Experience 2 of the most beautiful islands of Seychelles in one day: First to conquer is the island of Praslin, where upon arrival, you will be transported to the enigmatic Vallée de Mai. This prehistoric forest is home to the extraordinary Coco de Mer, the double lobed coconut, with a rather mysterious shape. Vallée de Mai has once been declared the site of the biblical Garden of Eden where the Coco de Mer was said to be the forbidden fruit. Serenated by the birds’ tweets and serene quietness of the woods, this magnificent property was once owned by the ancestors of the founders of Creole Travel Services. Our tour guide will lead you to discover this magical island of rare, endemic plants and birds.

After discovering the beautiful island of Praslin, our team will take you to the historical La Digue. First stop, before you are led to a new adventure, will be at a restaurant where a sumptuous Creole lunch will be awaiting you. With its small number of inhabitants, La Digue remains the most untouched amongst the three frequently visited islands. The tour will start with a visit of L’Union Estate, slowly unveiling the surprises of deep-rooted farm life by the discoveries of copra mill, giant tortoises’ pen and the time-honoured, plantation house. As you go further, you will be welcomed by giant boulders of granite nestled on the pristine and world famous beach of Anse Source D’ Argent which is said to be the most photographed strand. Opportunity awaits for a revitalizing dip in its rippling azure waters.

NB: Not recommended for pregnant women and the physically challenged. Not allowed for infants under 2 years old.
