How to prepare for the Praslin and La Digue trip

Preparing for a shared Praslin and La Digue trip requires attention to detail to ensure a seamless experience. 

Pick-up is available exclusively in Mahe’s North West regions – Belombre, Beau Vallon, Glacis, Eden Island, and L’Escale Resort. 

The package includes transportation by boat, landing fees, a delightful buffet lunch that accommodates vegetarians, and the insightful guidance of a private guide. 

While water and soft drinks are available, they come at an additional charge. 

The entry fee to Anse Source D’argent at L’Union Estate, approximately 15 euros per person, is not covered in the package and should be planned for separately.

When packing for the trip, essential items include swimwear for enjoying the pristine beaches, sunblock to protect against the tropical sun, and a hat for additional shade. 

Towels are a must-have for drying off after a dip in the ocean or a leisurely swim. 

Charge your camera or phone fully to capture the breathtaking scenery and memorable moments; we recommend a GoPro for high-quality underwater shots.

With these instructions, you’ll be well-equipped to enjoy the beauty and adventure that Praslin and La Digue offer.

Best time to visit the Seychelles islands

The best time to go on a Shared Praslin & La Digue Trip is during the transition months between the two main seasons: April-May and October-November. 

These months bring mild temperatures, calm seas, and clear skies, creating perfect conditions for island exploration. 

The favorable weather enhances visits to beaches, nature reserves, and participation in outdoor activities.

Additionally, these months often see fewer tourists, allowing for a more relaxed and intimate experience of the islands’ natural beauty and cultural offerings.
