DAY 2 : Round Island - Praslin
You'll head to the island of Praslin for the second day. Your morning will be devoted to exploring the Vallée de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Your afternoon will be dedicated to diving or simply relaxing on board.
DAY 3 : Praslin - La Digue
Early in the morning, sail to La Digue. If you want to visit the island on your own, the bicycle remains the ideal means of transport. You will discover the island's traditional activities, such as the vanilla plantation.

The Big Sister and Little Sister islands will welcome you for a diving or snorkeling session. A unique way to visit these uninhabited tropical islands and their preserved coral reefs.

You will discover Wright's Gardenias, the only place on the planet where this flower grows naturally.
DAY 6 : Arid - Curious
Morning departure to the island of Curieuse. Virtually uninhabited, the island has a vast mangrove forest to visit.
