The day begins with a transfer from your Praslin hotel to Cote d’Or, where the excursion departs. Begin by discovering Cousin Island and its picturesque reserve, with a wide range of fauna, including doves and giant tortoises. The island conservation success story has preserved much of its endemic wildlife, all for you to relish in this pristine sanctuary.
Be blown away by Curieuse Island, one of the few places where the rare Coco de Mer palm grows wild. It will be the perfect opportunity to swim in the crystal clear waters and relax on the white sand, before being served a tasty BBQ lunch.
Curieuse Island also hosts a fascinating nature reserve, where you will be able to visit the ruins of the ancient leper colony and the Doctor’s house, a charming museum. The trail will also lead you through a mangrove forest and the famous lagoon of Baie Laraie, abounding with small sharks and turtles. The hike’s highlight is encountering the giant tortoises roaming free on the island.
You will eventually sail to the third island jewel: St Pierre. Its crystalline waters abound with a kaleidoscope of fish and colourful coral formations, offering the snorkelling experience of a lifetime!
As you return to Praslin, you will be left with the difficult task of determining which of the three magnificent islands is your favourite!
