There are very few cars on the island, but bicycles are popular, which can be rented in Reunion Bay or directly upon arrival on the island, at the La Pass pier.

La Digue is officially divided into two districts: La Passe - the eastern coast of the island, where the pier for arriving ferries from Praslin and Mahe is located.

General Information


La Digue is located close to the larger Seychelles - 6 km from Praslin and 43 km from Mahé, with which it is connected by ferry services. The size of the island is 3 by 4 km, and the main territory is occupied by impenetrable jungle, as well as cinnamon and coconut plantations.

La Digue has only a few small pickup trucks, half a dozen carts, dozens of scooters and hundreds of bicycles - these are the only modes of transport available that are enough for 2,500 locals. The inhabitants of the island are engaged in fishing, agriculture or serving tourists. La Digue has an atmosphere of striking friendliness and tranquility.

Most of the inhabitants are concentrated in La Pass, on the west coast of the island. Ferries from Praslin arrive here daily. There is also a tourist office and dozens of hotels - you can walk to any one from the pier. Small hotels can also be found in other parts of La Diga.

There is a good road along the coast, bordered by tropical vegetation. Moving north, you come to Anse Sever beach. Behind him, the road turns south and passes rocky coves. From May to September, the southeast monsoons blow here, and the sea becomes very stormy. From Anse Banan Bay, hiking trails lead to more secluded coves.

Grand Anse is La Diga's largest beach, but it is wild, rocky and dangerous. The beach has warning labels in several languages. Powerful currents pose a serious danger to swimmers and divers. But Anse Source d'Argens, which is located very close to La Pass, is a true pearl of La Digue.
