Vallée de Mai

The so-called heart of Praslin is home to numerous palm trees, and is often seen as a real 'Garden of Eden' by those who discover its beauty. In 1966, the park was first designated a nature reserve thanks to its unique nature, with over 1,400 Coco de Mer palm trees. This plant produces the largest seed in the world, and it is for this reason that the park was later incorporated into the UNESCO World Heritage.

Fond Ferdinand, Praslin

Fond Ferdinand

Even though the Vallée de Mai is undoubtedly the main attraction of Praslin, the alternative Fond Ferdinand Nature Reserve is also well-worth a visit. Opened in 2013, this 122-hectare park is six times larger than the Vallée de Mai, and has even more endemic plant species and animals to discover, including a similar number of Coco de Mer palm trees. From the elevated lookout point, guests can enjoy a wonderful view of the rest of Praslin, as well as several other Inner Seychelles Islands, including Curieuse, Grande and Petite Soeur, La Digue, Coco Island, and many more. A guide is also included in your entrance fee, making a visit even more worthwhile.
