Top Praslin Attractions

Introduction:

Praslin Island lies 44 km northeast of Mahe. It is the second largest granitic island in the Seychelles archipelago. It is home to the world’s largest ‘Coco de Mer’ nut UNESCO reserve. This reserve is called ‘Vallee de Mai’ and is considered as the Sacred Garden of Eden. Below are the Top Praslin Attractions: –

Vallee-De-Mai:

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, often described as the ‘Garden of Eden’ due to its seclusion and mystical nature. The Park is the home to many endemic species such as the Coco De Mer itself, the Black Parrot, Seychelles Bulbul, Tiger Chameleon, Palm Trees, Gecko’s & Skinks. There’s just so much to discover. Visits can be self-guided, but it is advisable that you go along with a local tour guide. Guided tours are offered in several different languages which will give you a better chance of seeing the various species.

Fond Ferdinand Reserve:

Although Vallee-de-Mai UNESCO Reserve is the best attraction on Praslin Island, we should not forget about Fond Ferdinand. It is a reserve you should definitely visit during your stay on Praslin and is easily reachable via Consolation road.  You have to keep an eye out for a red sign reading Fond Ferdinand Nature Reserve pointing in the direction of the reserve. As with other reserves there is an entrance fee to be paid and you are then ushered through the magnificent garden forest. Visitors should note that guided tours are conducted only in the morning as it has to cover an area six times larger than the Vallee-De-Mai. The winding path through the valley takes two or three-hours and it ends at the most beautiful panoramic viewpoint.
