General pick‐up times from Hotels:
This itinerary is not to be missed! Take part in a full day tour of the greatest sights of the Seychelles. You'll be driven to the mysterious and impressive Vallée de Mai National Park - home to the legendary Coco de Mer, whose shape is reminiscent of female curves and grows far up ancient palms of the primordial forest.
The Vallée de Mai was once believed to be the biblical Garden of Eden and the Coco de Mer the forbidden fruit. Likewise, the national park was once owned by the ancestors of the directors of Creole Travel Services. Here you will experience a unique journey through the mystical realm where time seems to have stopped, along the path of centuries-old palm trees, accompanied by the chirping of very rare native bird species. You will then drive to the powder-white, expansive Cote D'Or beach, where you will have the opportunity to browse souvenir stores and then relax on the beach, swim and enjoy the gorgeous bay.
The tour continues by ferry towards La Digue. With its small population, La Digue remains the most unspoiled of the three most visited islands in the Seychelles. Upon arrival, you will be transferred to a restaurant for a delicious Creole lunch. You will then visit L'Union Estate, where you will discover a copra mill, huge turtle enclosures and the impressive plantation house, allowing you to experience the mystery of ancient plantation culture. At the end of the impressive park, the world famous, most photographed beach Anse Source d'Argent awaits you. Relax in the turquoise waters and end the afternoon at leisure on the beach.
Creole Travel Services is the number one choice for destination management in the mesmerising Seychelles islands, a truly unique world nestled in the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean.
