La Digue Holidays

If you are seeking beautiful beaches, a relaxed island vibe and a genuine touch of local life, La Digue definitely fits the bill. With jade-green waters encircled by coral reef, bewitching bays studded with gorgeous beaches and green hills cloaked with verdant jungle and towering trees, La Digue truly is a tropical paradise.

All visitors to La Digue arrive in the east coast village of La Passe, where there are a few shops, a number of grand plantation-style houses and places to rent bicycles, which is highly recommended. With no airport and just a few roads with a handful of cars or the odd ox cart, La Digue is the epitome of laid-back.

The beach in La Passe is a rather narrow strip of sands with shallow waters but does have magnificent views back across the water to Praslin and some of the most memorable sunsets. The closest swimming beach, Anse Severe, is just to the north with nearby Anse Patates also a great choice for splashing around in the waters and snorkelling. La Digue's most famous beach, Anse Source D'Argent, lies on the southwest coast and has silver white sands framed by giant granite boulders and perfectly positioned palms. A coastal path continues southward which passes a series of equally beautiful coves. The island's largest beach is Grand Anse, a phenomenal sweep of white sand with dramatic waves breaking across the bay and a great place to relax and enjoy the view, but it's not a recommended swimming beach.

If you can bear to tear yourself away from the beaches visit L'Union Estate formerly the centre of the island's coconut farming industry and now a national heritage site. Alternatively head to the small Veuve Reserve, home to numerous bird species, including the rare black paradise flycatcher.
