Welcome to Praslin


Lying about 45km northeast of Mahé, the second-largest island in the Seychelles is closer to the sleepiness of La Digue than the relative hustle and bustle of Mahé. Like Mahé, Praslin is a granite island, with a ridge of small mountains running east–west along the centre, and the svelte interior, especially the Vallée de Mai, is fascinating for its flora and bird life. Its combination of manageable size (you’re never more than an hour's drive from anywhere else on the island) and gorgeous beaches makes Praslin a fine choice for your Seychelles holiday.
