L'Anse Source D'Argent

La Digue is one of the smaller islands of the Seychelles. It is reasonably accessible, well served with accommodation and some tourist facilities, but is much quieter, picturesque and exclusive than Mahe or Praslin. The key reason for visiting is to experience L'Anse Source D'Argent, one of the world's top beaches, largely on account of the exotic weathering of the large pink granite rocks studding the coastline, coupled with sandy beaches and palms.

There are several small islands just off the coast of La Digue:

  • Félécite Island
  • Frigate Island
  • Marie Anne Island
  • Recif Island
  • The Sisters
