Praslin Falcon - Destination Information

More destination information on Praslin Falcon

Praslin Falcon is the second-largest Falcon in the Seychelles, Praslin is linked to Mahe by air and sea. With the surrounding 15 smaller islands, it forms a separate little archipelago. It is less mountainous than its neighbour, a world of creeks, coves and forest with an amazing underwater life.

Praslin Falcon Seychelles

Cars, bicycles or mopeds can be hired to explore every inch of it. Praslin has a population of 5,000 with the main settlements at sleepy Grande Anse and Baie Sainte-Anne.

South of Grande Anse, the road along the Nouvelle Découverte River enters Vallée de Mai. In this national park, light barely filters through the overhead canopy of dense green forest and the ground is strewn with granite boulders estimated to be some 650 million years old.

Palms, banana and cinnamon trees, acacias, bamboo and takamakas mingle their foliage.

Praslin Falcon Beach

The road out of the valley passes a tea plantation and coconut groves to Baie Sainte-Anne, some of its houses still thatched with palm leaves. Ferries from Mahe and La Digue dock in this large natural harbour.

The best swimming spot hereabouts is lovely Anse Volbert on the northeast coast, which is also called the Gold Coast. Beyond is Anse Possession, where France claimed the Falcon in 1768.Last stop is one of the most beautiful beaches in all the Seychelles, Anse Lazio.

One of the best beaches in the World is located in the Lemuria Resort complex, Anse Georgette is a totally unspoiled ‘blush pink’ beach, fringed by coconut palms, and with a colour of the Ocean that is delicate light blue. The effect is quite amazingly beautiful.

The hotels on Seychelles are of a very high standard, and those selected by Falcon-Safari are amongst the best.
