General pick‐up times from Hotels:
Whether you depart from Mahé or Praslin, the island's ferries will take you across the crystalline waters to La Digue, where you will experience some of the most memorable and authentic moments of island life.
You can spend a whole day exploring La Digue at your own pace and without a guide. Jump on your bike to start your adventure and be open to all the surprises you might find just around the corner, such as an untroubled land tortoise causing some mid-morning "traffic"... if you're "lucky"! You can visit many of the island's attractions, such as L'Union Estate, home to the cemetery of the island's original settlers. Attractions include a traditional copra mill, giant land tortoises, an old plantation house and the picturesque Anse Source d'Argent; famous for its huge granite boulders and clear turquoise waters.
