La Digue is one of the most celebrated islands in the Seychelles. Its huge dark granite boulders and white sandy beaches have provided the backdrop for many an advertisement. Visitors can reach La Digue by boat from Praslin and the main mode of transport once you get to the island is the bicycle. Now that vanilla production has moved elsewhere there is little in the way of commercial activity on La Digue and tourism is very much the main income source for most people. La Digue combines very well with Mahe or Praslin for those looking to explore more than one island, and its relaxed atmosphere, and spectacular coastline, provide the perfect base for the ultimate tropical beach holiday.
