Overview La Digue Seychelles

When you arrive in La Digue, Seychelles,  it’s only via ferry. So the port became the center. All signs saying “Jetty” lead you tIMG_8213he way there. But please don’t compare this port to the ones you know from other islands. It’s more or less one landing stage, some nice catamarans in the water and few speed boats. Under the trees there is the main meeting point. Locals and tourists enjoy the shade and have a chat.

Directly at the port are several bike rentals. A normal bike is 100SR per day, one with a child seat at the back 150SR. But there are also bikes with 3 wheels for those who’d like to have it more comfortable. Most of the bikes are equipped with a basket at the back or front to store you’re beach utensils. We made very good experiences with Neddy, 254 6193. [email protected] On our third day I had a puncture in the wheel. He came immediateIMG_8206ly to the port, although he wasn’t working on that day. After 15min the wheel was changed and we’ve been on the road again.

Other transportation possibilities is the Ox cart. Surely an adventure, driving slowly in an ancient way over the island.

The most modern way is a taxi. It’s about 150-200SR. Unfortunately they drive very fast for a mostly car free island. At the times when the ferry arrives it’s a nightmare having the taxis going 20 times from the port to the hotel and back.

Anse Source d`Argent La Digue, Seychelles, one of the best beaches worldwide

There’s one must see on La Digue (Seychelles): Anse Source d’Argent. If you see a picture of the Seychelles the probability that it’s this beach is quite high. Located in a nature park it costs 100SR (approx. 8€) to get in. Preferably by bicycle, as the way from the entrance to the beach takes at least 3minutes. In our traveller mind a nature park is a bit different from a Domaine where Vanilla is planted. Nevertheless: It’s like this, one rides through the Domaine on sandy streets until he reaches the beach. There the bike has to be left. We haven’t locked it, as everyone rides anyway his bike and stealing on such a small island won’t be very successful. Continue Reading →
