You want to spend holidays in paradise? The Seychelles fulfill this requirement in every respect: white sandy beaches, palm trees and the characteristic granite cliffs promise a dream holiday as it stands in the most beautiful postcards of the island.
But not only the beauty of the islands has made the Seychelles a popular destination. The typical Creole culture and the friendly, helpful and open-hearted Seychellois, as they proudly call themselves, make a trip here a perfect stay. In this travel tips for the Seychelles we take you to the island archipelago in the Indian Ocean. Join us to discover one of the most beautiful islands of the archipelago: Praslin.
Praslin is the second largest island of the Seychelles in terms of population. With 38 square kilometers and almost 9000 inhabitants, it is still comparatively small. Praslin is located northeast of Mahé and is regularly served by a small plane from there. Only 15 minutes by air separate Mahé and Praslin. Alternatively, you can also reach this paradise by ferry, which is cheaper, but it takes an hour or so to reach here.
For tourists, the island is popular for one reason above all else: here are the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles. In addition, it is known worldwide for a special record: Here grows the largest coconut in the world, the Coco de Mer, which is very special not only because of their size, but also because of their shape. It can only be found on Praslin in the Vallée de Mai National Park.
The most beautiful beaches of Praslin
22 beaches stretch along the coast of Praslin. Here are some of the most beautiful beaches on the island:
- Anse Lazio : Anse Lazio is not only one of the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles: In the past, the beach has been voted several times in the top ten of “The World’s 50 Best Beaches”. Of course, its popularity also has its downsides, because the beach is one of the most popular sights in the Seychelles. But this should not stop you from visiting this beach welcoming visitors all year round.
- Anse Georgette: Meter-high palm trees, white sandy beaches and turquoise waters: that’s all you need for paradise on earth. As the water here drops steeply, the beach is less suitable for families with small children.
- Anse Petite Cour : This private beach is small with 240 meters, but quite exceptional. Located near the Marine Park, snorkelers and divers will get their money’s worth here. Note: Anse Petite Cour is a private beach accessible to Domaine de la Reserve Hotel Praslin Seychelles’ guests.
Le Domaine de la Reserve
Holidays on a private beach: In the Seychelles, this can be true. A few selected, uninhabited islands with private beaches are quite luxurious retreats. Since an island in the Seychelles is quite large, spacious and densely overgrown, there is an enormous amount of privacy and tranquility. So secluded, you really feel like you own the beach. Hardly touched nature and paradisiacal beaches almost on their own: There are only very rare in the world! In order to preserve the originality, Le Domaine de la Reserve Hotel act and manage sustainably and responsibly, because nature is included in the hotel concept as worthy of protection.
