Earth : Africa : East Africa : Seychelles : La Digue
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:
There are several ferries a day the run between the port of Praslin, and La Ligue. costs round trip are aproximatley 40 euro as of 2011. There are also several locals of Praslin that offer boats for hire, however this option is very expensive. Expect to pay aproximatly 600 euro and upwards. I f you go this route however, you will have the chance at stopping at some of the other less excesable islands in the area as well.
