One of the most charming islands in the Seychelles, La Digue has a population of just 2,000 and a relaxed way of life with the traditional modes of transport of ox-cart and bicycle still being used instead of cars. There are a number of beautiful beaches boasting stretches of white sand, turquoise blue lagoons and stunning granite boulders including Anse Source d’Argent, which is believed to be the most photographed beach in the world. Visit L’Union, an abandoned coconut estate, now home to a community of giant tortoises and the only remaining Copra mill (Copra is oil derived from the dried flesh of a coconut) on the island and search for the paradise flycatcher, one of Seychelles’ endemic bird species still listed as critically endangered, at Veuve Reserve.
