There are three islands that form the heart of Seychelles: Mahé, which is the main island with its international airport. La Digue, which has managed to preserve its former charm, where bicycles and oxcarts meet. And finally, Praslin, which is also known as the Black Parrot Island.
The Vallée de Mai of Praslin, already a natural reserve since 1966, was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The site is home to several palm tree species as well as many animal species, some of which are endemic to the archipelago. Such as the endangered black parrot or various birds and reptiles, including different varieties of geckos.
The site is a massively protected area, particularly because of its small size, making it vulnerable to possible fires and other disasters. Its protection is mainly ensured by the Seychelles Islands Foundation (SIF), which preserves the ecological integrity of the Vallée de Mai. Visits to the Vallée de Mai are possible every day.
Many travelers transiting through Seychelles stop there to discover this eighth wonder of the world, along the specially marked paths specially designed for this purpose, with the utmost respect for the area. Magnificent waterfalls of clear water are illustrated in the green setting of the various palm trees. Do not hesitate to stay longer during your sailboat charter holiday in Praslin and let yourself be tempted by this jewel of rare beauty.
Praslin Island, known for its beautiful beaches, is located 36 km northeast of the main island of Mahé, which represents a 45-minute boat trip or 15 minutes by plane. Imagine so little travel to meet the "well-deserved rest" on the most beautiful beaches in the world, it would be useless to deprive yourself of it, wouldn't it?
On the island of Praslin, you will find many coves, each one more beautiful than the next. On the beaches, you will have the privilege of witnessing a spectacle of great beauty: large pink granite rocks with multiple shapes set on the sand so subtle, so soft, so white. In the vicinity of these long sandy stretches, coconut palms and tokamaks will greet you. A funny question will probably come to mind: "Why are such beautiful beaches so less visited? "The answer is very simple; the locals have been able to preserve the authenticity and charm of this beautiful island that is Praslin.
Not only will you have the privilege of relaxing on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but they will also be (almost) deserted! Beaches located near or in front of hotels are public beaches and therefore accessible to all. You will, therefore, be spoilt for choice.
There is no need to brag about the turquoise color of the waters or even the joy of swimming all year round at an average temperature of 28°... To get an idea of what awaits you, visit the many coves that the island has, including one of the most popular in the world: Anse Lazio!
Some of Praslin's coves can only be accessed by boat, with a guide or with the permission of the resorts on-site. It is not difficult to get to these bays, but it is better to know this information if you plan to stop at each cove. Anse Georgette, which is very famous, is one of the creeks to which access is only by boat or by authorization. This cove has the particularity, in addition to its unlikely access, of having fabulous granite rocks set on a stretch of white sand.
In Anse Georgette, you can spend your sailing holiday in Praslin diving with fins, mask, and snorkel to admire the many species of fish that inhabit the crystal-clear waters. Nearby, you will also have the pleasure of visiting Anse Kerlan or Petite Anse Kerlan, two idyllic places that invite you to swim during the favorable seasons.
