Seychelles – Praslin Island from La Digue
Lemuria Resort on Praslin Island is a recreation of this lost paradise, set in a spectacular vista of azure seas, white beaches, tranquil lagoons and tropical palm groves, it seems to have been an immaculate conception. It appears among the trees without in the least disturbing the island’s luxuriant vegetation. The location on Praslin island is really good, and the beach is just wonderful – in fact one of the best at Praslin. The hotel is very nice and standard is high, and I would call it controlled luxury. The magical Praslin Island is surrounded by some other stunning islands. To make your trip more exciting, book in advance your stay in any of the available accommodations.
The other tourist office on Praslin Island is found at the airport. The village of Grand Anse is where the bulk of the Praslin travel agencies can be found, and it’s also home to some banks and a post office.
In the past, the Coco de-Mar had great value, it was treasured dearly, a treasure for Kings and Sultans only. Should any person find this coconut on a beach he had to give it immediately to the King, if he kept it and was discovered he would pay with his life. Tropique Villa is located on the western coastline of Praslin with a direct access to Grande Anse beach. She worked for one of the biggest tour operator Travel services for 7 years, then 8 years for the ministry of Tourism as tourism representative for Praslin. And the relative isolation of Anse Lazio was wonderful after the bustle of Victoria and the resorts of Beau Vallon. We took one bus trip around the island, and saw the Vallee du Mai, but I was happy to sit on the boat and enjoy the clearish water and the beach.
Along the shoreline, the Aldabra sacred Ibis together with a whole host of black-napped and crested terns including caspians may be seen. Other birds include the greater flamingo and the malagasy kestrel, which are probably recent colonists.
