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

Get in

  • There is a helipad served by Helicopter Seychelles [1].

Get around



  • Excursions can be made round the island on bicycles, to the reserve of the rare Paradise Flycatchers, to Ile de Cocos for snorkeling, or over to Praslin to see the Coco de Mer (suggestively shaped type of coconut).
