Praslin is the second biggest island of the Seychelles. Funnily it’s naturwise and from the infrastructure in the middle between Mahé and La Digue. On Praslin one needs a rental car to discover the Bacardi beach or the Nature Park. The busses stop sometimes far away from the main spots and you should like to walk, if you choose this way of transport.
1. Get a rental car!
We decided to stay at Chalet Coté Mer. A self-catering accommodation offering B&B and Halfboard.
The proprietors are not yet 30 years old and that motivated, organized and fizzy. We enjoyed their high customer service and the awesome location. From the chalets’ balconies you have a good view of the port. Ideally located it’s only a 3minutes drive. Directly after arriving we changed into our swimming suits and headed for the pool. The infinity pool with an attached childrens’ pool made it easy for us to relax after the ferry.
The Apartment is very spacious and equipped with a kitchen. We so much enjoyed having fresh food. It was already over a week ago that we had fresh salad, as that’s a very rare product on the Seychelles. We’ve been shopping at the ISPC Supermarket Praslin, only 5minutes from the port. This is what we bought. Guess the price!
Don’t be surprised. It is a 400SR salad (around 25€).
3. Get a bottle of wine at the indian supermarket and enjoy the stars.
