Whether you wish to explore the tropical forests of the Vallee de Mai in search of exotic vanilla orchids and the coco de mer, or walk the sun drenched beaches of Anse Lazio and Georgette, Praslin will not disappoint.

There are many small islands and islets surrounding the crystal waters of Praslin, perfect for day trips. Visit Curieuse, or snorkel at the islet of St Pierre. Take the schooner ferry service to neighbouring la Digue for the day or book on a boat trip for sailing and snorkelling around the islands. Hotels and resorts tend to be small and charming.

Keen golfers will enjoy the course at Constance Lemuria.
