La Digue - La digue Island was discovered by Lazar Picault in 1744 and called it le rouge, or red island, because of its reddish hue at sun set. It was renamed La digue in 1768 after the store ship called La digue with a population of just around 2000 inhabitants. Althought you can come in by Helicopter, it's still generally by sea that you can land on the island. The island is more beautiful than the other island. Understandably inhabitants from Mahe like to spend the weekend here to get away from its hustle and bustle. As soon as you get in the small port you will start to sense a certain calm There are 100 of bicycle ready to be used by day tripers for just a hand full of rupees, because the only way to get around is by foot, bicycle or a bullock dray. So the bicycle reigns pretty much supreme in this delightful island, where ever you look one enchanting vista after another you can not but be astounded by so much beauty, The no exit road leading down to Anse Fourmis provides 1001 extraordinary vistas over a cove of turquoise blue water covered with palm trees. The large beaches at the southern end of the island are completely pristine: The breathtaking Grand Anse with its thundering surf, the discreet Petite Anse, and Anse Cocos with its whiter than white sand, which is only accessible by foot. A primitive setting, a purity that evokes the beginnings of the world, and all to yourself. And to top it all off there is the unbeatable and mythical Anse Source D'argent. The most beautiful beach of the world Anse Source D'argent includes other curiosities worthy of closer inspection. A former cemetery dating from the early 20th century and giant tortoise park at the foot of a hug rock, a copra plant and an oil mill, fruit and vegetable gardens and cattle and pig farm, but above all the now historic creole house made of timber and palms that is shown on the bank not, and where you can still smell the fragrance of sensual sylvia kristel, because it was here that the highly seychellesque "Goodbye Emmanuelle" was filmed make way!
