Nid d'Aigle

Viewpoint in La Digue

Nid d'Aigle (Eagle's Nest), the highest point on La Digue (333m), commands sensational views. From La Passe, follow the inland concrete road that leads up to Snack Bellevue (it's signposted), then take the narrow path that starts behind the Snack. After about 15 minutes, you'll reach an intersection on a ridge; turn right and follow the path until you reach Nid d'Aigle (no sign) after another 10 minutes.

From Nid d'Aigle, it's possible to descend to Anse Cocos (add another 90 minutes), but a guide is mandatory as the path is overgrown.
