La Digue

Although the fourth largest island, La Digue is the third most visited after Mahé and Praslin. Measuring only 5 km by 3 km, it is a veritible mass of intriguing wilderness in areas.

With only a few vehicles being allowed on the island the best means of transport is by bike or ox-drawn carts - not just a tourist attraction but a real and very much uses way of circumventing the island.

The different sides of the island vary immensely and the beautiful quiet shores of 'Pointe Source d'Argent' (apparently the most photographed beach in the world!) are a far cry from the wilder east coast with the breaking waves on 'Grande Anse'.
