About the location
Praslin was voted one of the best islands in Africa by the well-travelled TripAdvisor set. That’s largely thanks to the wiggly coastline of beaches that tussle for the title of the best strip of sand in the Seychelles. North-westerly Anse Lazio is the most well-known, thanks to its silver-bright stripe of sand. For something a little quieter, try Anse Kerlan – a hideaway for sea turtles and peace-seekers.

Praslin National Park sits in the centre of the island; it's home to the red-beaked bulbul and black parrot. The Vallée de Mei carves out a path through the jungle, with footpaths trailing past towering groves of coco de mer palm trees and flowering tropical plants. Many of these are first growth, hardly touched by humans.

Meanwhile, dive centres give you the chance to go on safari in the Indian Ocean. Easy dives tick off the coral reefs (you could see rays and firefish gobys), while trickier trips head to the Outer Islands, where sharks and rays flicker through the waters.
Transfer time
It is a 20 minute flight from Seychelles International airport to Praslin Island airport before a 20 minute transfer onto the hotel.
