La Digue Island is an island where time stands still and time-honoured traditions such as traveling by ox-cart and bicycle are still king.

 
La Digue Island local transport - Ox wagon & bicyclesClose neighbour to Praslin and to its satellite islands of Félicité, Marianne and the Sisters Islands, La Digue Island is the fourth largest island in Seychelles.

La Digue Island takes its name from one of the vessels in explorer Marion Dufresne's fleet, sent by the French to explore Seychelles' granitic islands in 1768.

Apart from hosting the Seychelles' black paradise flycatcher, one of the rarest birds on earth, La Digue Island's biodiversity features such stars as the Chinese bittern, cave swiftlet, waxbill as well as two rare species of terrapin.

La Digue Island's forests also contain a wealth of flora in the form of delicate orchids, tumbling vines of vanilla, as well as trees such as Indian almond and takamaka. Gardens blaze with hibiscus and nepenthes against a backdrop of swaying coconut palms.

Traditional methods of boat building and refining of coconut products (copra) are still practised on La Digue.

The friendly atmosphere of this intimate island with its languid pace of life, traditional architecture and breathtaking beaches, such as legendary Anse Source d’Argent, is an absolute must for visitors.

La Digue Island has numerous and diverse accommodation for visitors, and its picturesque satellite islands are ideal for snorkeling and diving excursions.
