La Digue - Bike Only

Duration: Full Day

la digue - bike only

With a population of approximately 2,000 people, La Digue is the fourth largest inhabited island in the Seychelles archipelago, which comprises 115 stunning granitic and coral islands. Located in the middle of the Indian Ocean, about 1,500km off the east coast of Africa’s mainland, the islands are fragments of the ancient Gondwanaland continent, left scattered in the ocean millions of years ago when the Indian subcontinent broke away from Africa. The result is a paradise destination, boasting pristine white sandy beaches, sparkling turquoise waters, beautiful coral reefs, exotic flora and fauna, lush vegetation, rare wildlife, unique granite rock formations and dramatic scenery found nowhere else in the world. It would be difficult to find a more idyllic holiday destination. This relaxing tour will enable you to explore the breathtaking granitic island of La Digue by bicycle, just as the locals do, discovering the island’s treasures at your leisure.

As soon as you reach La Digue, you will understand why it is one of the most photographed islands in the world. Full of charm and character, the island is one of the most traditional in the Seychelles, and you immediately get the feeling that you have stepped back in time. With few roads, and cars restricted, the local people travel around the island by foot, bicycle and slow-moving ox-carts, which are still the main form of transportation here today. This laid back, simple way of life makes La Digue an extremely relaxing and peaceful holiday destination.

With cycling being the best way to explore the island, you have the option to see as much or as little as you want during the day. Just hop on and off whenever you see sights of interest. Ride leisurely along quiet lanes and dusty tracks, past picturesque, colonial architecture and through lush vanilla and coconut plantations, looking out for rare wildlife species such as the Black Paradise Flycatcher. Discover the small harbour town of La Passe, with its bustling fish market, and stop for refreshments at one of the quaint Creole restaurants, where you will be warmly welcomed by the friendly local people.

Cycle onwards to secluded beaches, where you will find hidden coves, powdery white sands, swaying palms and unique, pink granite rock formations. The Seychelles host the only mid-oceanic granitic islands in the world, so you can witness spectacular scenery found nowhere else. One of the most beautiful and most photographed beaches in the world lies on La Digue Island - Anse Source d'Argent. Renowned for its towering granite boulder, pristine white sands, sparkling, clear azure waters and lush palms and flora, this beach is as close to paradise as you can get. Anse Source d'Argent has previously been the location for numerous films such as Castaway and Pirates, and commercials such as Bounty and Bacardi.

If you are looking for pure relaxation and paradise locations during your holiday in the Seychelles, La Digue is the perfect epitome.
