boulders at Anse Lazio, Praslin, Seychelles

Anse Lazio is at northeastern side of Praslin, not too far from Anse Georgette. There are 2 options how to get there for people accommodated in Anse Kerlan without a car.

  • You can take bus and go to Mont Plaisir terminal station, which is about 2 stops, but quite steep slope. Then you can walk 1.9km throught country (it took us 37 min).
  • Take bus going in other direction for 50 minutes and get off at Anse Boudin. Then walk steep road up and down for 1km.
Guess which way we decided to go? It was tricky question, because we took both. Walking more in the morning, bus riding in the evening. But the reason for returning by bus going around the whole island was that we would need to leave Anse Lazio earlier to catch the last bus.

Anse Georgette, Praslin, Seychelles

Beach Anse Kerlan was only 100m from our accommodation in Praslin, but it got so low priority that we went there only once to check how it looks like. It happened shortly before another trip so we took 5 photos and left. If there will not be anything better, we might return...

Real attraction for us were beaches Anse Georgette and Anse Lazio. To get to both of them you need to walk. It is up to you to decide how much.

forest Vallee de Mai, Praslin, Seychelles

When we arrived to Praslin at 6th of May it was sunny and hot. And it stayed that way until we returned to Mahe. This has made our stay at Praslin unique from whole Seychelles :-)

Arranged taxi did not materialize at port so after waiting for about 30 minutes we asked taxi driver waiting nearby if he could take us. He was chatty, after learning we are there for the first time, he explained basic facts about the island and added a few extras. For example nobody likes ferry ride between Mahe and Praslin during bad weather. He went to Mahe once with his family and refused to return by ferry. They had to fly back. Or that he had a customer who immediately after arrival to Praslin asked him to get him directly to airport, completely ignoring original reason of his visit to Praslin. So from this point of view we must be crazy or something.
