La Digue Island

Paradise, paradise and more paradise!

La Digue is the fourth largest inhabited island of the Seychelles, lying east of Praslin and west of Felicite Island. With an area of just 10 km² the island's main industry is tourism and it is well known for its white beaches which are lined with massive rounded granite boulders. The most well known of these is Anse Source d'Argent, which you should be sure to visit while staying on La Digue.

La Digue is most famous for its beautiful landscape, offering unique rock formations reaching down to the sea. Nowhere else within the Seychelles are such wonders to be seen, the ancient granite rocks worn away by old father time, leaving breathtaking structures for the eye to marvel at. The island is also well known for its slow pace of life and casual relaxed lifestyle. Don't expect anything to happen in a hurry around here!

In former times copra and vanilla production were mainstays of the local economy, but now tourism reigns and visitors come in search of the most famous of the granite boulder lined beaches; Anse Source d'Argent. In the island's interior is Veuve Nature Reserve, home of the rare Black Paradise Flycatcher, of which there are only about 100 in existence. La Digue's tallest peak is also in the central part of the island, Belle Vue (Eagle's Nest Mountain) which is more than 300 meters above sea level. If you climb to the peak you will be rewarded with the finest all round view of the island.

Getting around La Digue is generally by oxcart taxi, by foot or on a bicycle, as vehicles are restricted on the island and roads are in short supply! Getting to the island is generally by boat as explained in the La Digue Getting There section. 

Once on the island you can choose to stay in luxury accommodation, see our La Digue Accommodation section for more information on your choices, or view the La Digue Map to see where the lodges are located on the island.
