The second largest island in the Seychelles, Praslin is the perfect tropical island. Whilst you're here, be sure to visit the national reserve, ‘Valley de Mai'. Legend has it that ‘Valley de Mai' is the Garden of Eden, due to its beauty and prehistoric plants. Here you can visit a grove of huge ancient Coco-de-Mer palms – they're found nowhere else on earth. There's also a self-guided walking trail through the reserve. The other main attraction of Praslin of course is the beaches. Check out ‘Anse Lazio' and ‘Anse Georgette' -they've both appeared on the top-10 list of world's best beaches over the years.
Popular purchases on Praslin Island include anything that's been specially shaped like the 'Coco-de-Mer nut', e.g. liqueur bottles. For any last minute shopping, you'll also come across a handful of shops and boutiques near to the port.
The local currency is the Seychelles Rupee (SCR). Praslin is 4 hours behind Greenwich meantime (GMT -4).
