Praslin Island holidays

There are only a few small villages strewn across the island, whose population of about five thousand earn their living as fishermen, farmers or by catering for visitors to the island. The main attraction of Praslin is the National Park or “Vallée de Mai”, which is home to a prehistoric rainforest of huge trees that dominates the landscape. The “Coco-de-Mer” coconut is famous for its large size, and infamous because of its striking similarity to the female genitalia! Large, “Dali-esque” granite formations decorate almost every beach on the island. The 8000-year-old coral reefs, populated by fantastically coloured reef fish, make the island a Mecca for snorkelers and divers. The unique beauty of its reef world cannot be found on dry land, but is almost equalled by the beauty of the island’s spectacular, solitary beaches.
