La-Digue

No doubt the most charming of the islands, La Digue has remained untouched by the passage of time. With a population of 2000 habitants, the island’s rhythm of life is as relaxed and laid-back as its traditional modes of transport: the ox-carts and bicycles! It takes about half an hour to reach La-Digue by traditional schooner from Praslin. From Mahe, the only way to reach La-Digue is via helicopter or private boat.

 

Attractions on La-Digue include the Union Estate, a park full of history, culture and adventure, and of course, the famous Anse Source d’Argent: the most photographed beach in the world. This beach has provided the perfect backdrop for famous films such as Roman Polanski’s « Pirates », Robinson Crusoe and Cast Away. Adverts such as that for Bounty, Bacardi & Carling have also been filmed on this famous spot.

 

The “Nid d'Aigle" mountain peak is 300m high and dominates the in-land. The only plateau stretches to the West covering Anse Reunion, La Passe & l’Union. There is a long beach between Point Cap Barbi to the North West and Pointe d’Argent, which is naturally decorated by large granite boulders that changes colours from pink to grey according to the sun’s rays.

 

La –Digue can be discovered leisurely by ox-cart, by bicycle or by foot. The most secluded beaches such as Anse Source d'Argents, Grand Anse, Petite Anse and Anse Coco, all offer white sandy beaches, turquoise blue lagoons and a majestic granite backdrop.
