The second largest island of the Seychelles’ inner archipelago, Praslin is renowned for its exquisite beauty and tranquil island lifestyle. Originally coined the ‘isle of palms’ by the French explorer Lazare Picault, the island is characterised by its dense forests, white-sand beaches and surrounding waters of every conceivable tone of blue and green.
The island itself is hub to some of the best island hopping excursions to neighbouring islands like Mahe, La Digue, Cousin, Aride which are important sanctuaries, nurturing rare species of endemic flora and fauna.
Praslin is often heralded as ‘having the best beaches on the planet’. In fact, one of its beaches, Anse Lazio, is listed as the third most beautiful beach in the world by the Guinness Book of Records.
With just 5,000 residents or so, the pace of life on Praslin remains unhurried for the locals, and even less so for the visitors that call it paradise.
