General pick‐up times from Hotels:
We invite you to travel in traditional Seychelles manner by schooner. Sail from Praslin’s Baie Sainte Anne jetty to the nearby island of La Digue, where you will be welcomed with freshly picked coconuts before being escorted by traditional transport to l’Union Estate.
Here, in landscaped gardens bordering imposing granite boulders and the equally magnificent ‘Emmanuelle’ house, where the famous film of the same name was made, we will reveal to you how ‘copra’, the succulent flesh of the coconut, is dried and its perfumed oils are extracted.
Your next visit will be to Anse Source d’Argent, the world’s most-photographed beach, famous for having played host to scenes from such films as ‘Pirates’ and ‘Castaway’, as well as to adverts for Bacardi, Carling, and Bounty. The combination of turquoise shallows fringed by exquisite granite rocks promises to take your breath away.
Lunch will be at today’s choice of traditional restaurant, followed by a scenic journey to either Grand Anse or Anse Severe, where you will wile away the afternoon at leisure. The choice of beach depends on the weather conditions and group preferences.
Alternatively, from the moment you arrive on La Digue, you may decide to set out on your own individual voyage of discovery and explore the island by bicycle at your leisure (fees apply), taking in as many places of interest as your heart desires.
