Have you ever fallen in love with that tropical paradise shot that appears in countless adverts and glossy travel brochures? Well that tropical paradise probably was shot at Anse Source D’Argent beach on fabulous La Digue island. La Digue is a place guarded by warm azure waters and fringed by teeming reefs full of colourful Angelfish, Parrotfish, octopus, whitetip sharks, eagle rays, hawksbill turtles and lots more. Also a place that has the friendliest people and the most tranquil, serene and relaxing atmosphere in the Seychelles. And to top all that La Digue has some great dive spots waiting to be explored. Breath-taking granitic slopes and underwater rock formations along with an abundance of colourful fish species make diving in La Digue a must for anyone visiting the Seychelles.

First fly into the Mahe International Airport (Airport Code MAH) on the main Seychelles island of Mahe. Emirates flies from Europe via Dubai to Mahe International Airport on a regular basis.
Once in Mahe you have to get to Praslin first before getting to La Digue. Praslin can be reached by a short 15 minutes flight through Air Seychelles (www.airseychelles.com) or by the Cat Cocos Ferry service (www.cat-cocos-seychelles.com). Once in Praslin you have to take another ferry to get to La Digue.
