Tour of Praslin Island, Seychelles


The Seychelles is a beautiful island chain that consists of 115 islands. The main island, Mahe, is where the capital city and main airport are located. However, there are other islands that also offer stunning beaches and wildlife. In this short description, we will explore Praslin Island, one of the two largest islands in the Seychelles archipelago. To explore this amazing Jewel we propose 2 adventures: Half day tour and a Full day.

Half day tour

On the Half day, we offer two highlights ONLY, Vallee de Mai and Anse Lazio, and both are very exciting spots to visit.

Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve

The Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and an important habitat for the critically endangered Seychelles magpie robin. The reserve is also home to many endemic plants, including the giant cane palm and the Coco de Mer tree.

The reserve has several hiking trails, some of which are quite challenging. There’s also a visitor center and gift shop that sells snacks and souvenirs.

Anse Lazio

If you’re looking for a secluded beach with some great snorkeling, Anse Lazio is the place for you. This beach is located in the north of Praslin, and it’s about 1km from the main road that connects North and South Praslin. The small bay on which this beach sits is formed by two rocky headlands which prevent large waves from crashing onto its shore.

The waters are calm here (most times) making it ideal for swimming and sunbathing, but if you’re into snorkeling then this spot has plenty to offer as well. The sheer number of fish that swim around these reefs makes them one of Seychelles’ best-kept secrets!

We’ll be sure to give you the best tips for the tour whilst exploring with you. But if you would like to spend some more time the next tour is your:

Full day tour

In addition to the previously mention spot in the half-day tour we also get a chance to visit even more places ALL around the island, you can recommend your spots or let us take the wheel and guide you around, from exciting view points, pearl farm and so much more we’ve compiled some of the most sorts after spots below.

Anse Georgette

Anse Georgette is a great place to snorkel. The bay is shallow, so you can wade out and explore the coral reef without getting too deep. This was a nice break from our long boat rides and hikes in the rainforest. We saw some pretty fish here and even got some good pictures for social media! I would definitely recommend this spot if you’re looking for something easy-going but still interesting.

Anse Volbert

Anse Volbert is a beautiful beach on Praslin Island that’s near the town of Cote d’Or. The beach has white sand and clear water, and there’s a bar and restaurant there for food and drinks. This is an excellent place to swim or snorkel because the coral reef next to it is full of colorful fish, sea turtles, rays, octopi…the list goes on!

Cote d’Or

Cote d’Or is a beautiful beach that’s just a short drive from the airport. It’s also an excellent place to spend the day swimming and snorkeling. There are some good restaurants nearby if you want to grab lunch after your swim, and the prices there are reasonable for Seychellois standards.


Seychelles is a beautiful and unique place with some of the best beaches and nature you will find anywhere in the world. Praslin Island offers many great options for exploring these natural wonders, including hiking through rainforests filled with exotic flowers or swimming at one of its many pristine beaches. There is no doubt that this island has something special waiting for everyone who visits!
