Praslin is the site of the legendary Vallée de Mai, one of Seychelles’s two UNESCO World Heritage Sites. This is where the world-renowned Coco-de-Mer, the world's largest nut, grows high on ancient 40-metre palms. A guided tour will reveal the mysteries of a twilight world that bustles with life from the carpet of leaves of the forest floor to the canopy above, inhabited by tiny frogs, lizards, chameleons, 6 species of endemic palm, and the Seychelles Black Parrot.
Praslin also provides a base for excursions to neighbouring islands including Cousin, Curieuse, St. Pierre, The Sister’s Islands and Coco Island. Some of these islets are important sanctuaries nurturing rare species of endemic flora and fauna.
We have selected some of the best properties on Praslin ranging from romantic resorts to beachside hotels.
