Upon arrival in La Digue, you will exchange your voucher for a bicycle and entrance tickets to L'Union Estate.

If you have any questions or would like to know the best place to stop for lunch, simply ask your representative in the morning for extra tips.
While on La Digue you can visit the traditional Copra Mill, Old Plantation House (L'Union Estate) with its Giant Tortoises and Anse Source D'Argent! The day is all yours and there are many more beaches to explore than those already mentioned. If you see somewhere you'd like to stop, simply park your bike against a tree and explore. There's no need to worry about bike theft on La Digue, so it's okay if you forget to lock your bike.
Recommended bike route La Digue: From the harbour simply cycle South-East to Grand Anse, Petit Anse and Anse Coco. This way you can cycle the 'furthest' (around 5-6 km) while the temperature is still comfortable and start your day with your feet in the sand, snorkelling and exploring some of La Digue's most beautiful beaches. Follow the same route back to La Passe to visit the Copra Factory/Anse Severe right before you go and have some delicious lunch in town. After lunch head over to L'Union Estate to check out the tortoises and the old plantation house and finish your day off at one of the most stunning beaches on La Digue: Anse Source D'Argent Beach. If you have time left, try adding the Veuve Nature Reserve or Chateau St. Cloud to your list of things to visit on La Digue.
After exploring La Digue for the day, simply report to the jetty at least 20 minutes before the departure time at 16:30 or 17:00 (differs per day).
