Though at 38.5 km2, Praslin is the second largest island in the Seychelles, the island has a fraction of the population of neighbouring Mahé. This gives Praslin a warm, welcoming and laid-back feel, and ensures the island’s countryside and beaches remain empty enough for visitors to find their very own piece of tropical paradise.
Like Mahe, Praslin is a granite island and a prominent stretch of mountains runs east to west along its centre. The island also boasts lush valleys, abundant plant and animal life and some of the most colourful and eye-catching birds in the region. This diversity and natural beauty makes Praslin an excellent choice for holidaymakers who want to get close to nature during their stay in the Seychelles.
Visitors planning a relaxing beach break on Praslin will find plenty of white sandy bays and crystal clear waters to choose from. Two of the most popular are Anse Lazio and Anse Goegette, both of which regularly appear on lists of the top ten most beautiful beaches on earth. As Praslin is just 12 km long and 4.6 km wide, holidaymakers will never be more than 90 minutes from any of these stunning beaches.
Holidaymakers who want more from their exotic getaway than sun, sea and relaxation will find a good choice of activities on offer on Praslin. Visitors can enjoy playing a round or two in paradise on the island’s 18-hole golf course, charter a boat and explore the pristine waters that surround the island or learn to dive in its tropical waters.
Away from the white sandy beaches and blue seas, Praslin offers its very own nature reserve, located in the Vallee de Mai, and a great choice of hiking routes that are perfect for exploring on cool Indian Ocean mornings.
With its welcoming feel, beautiful landscape, great selection of stylish hotels and choice of outstanding beaches, Praslin is a fantastic choice for your next Seychelles holiday. Whether you’re treating your other half to a luxurious escape or taking your family on the trip of a lifetime, this idyllic island won’t disappoint.
Why not book your break now and start looking forward to an exotic escape of your own?
