ADD TO LISTLa Digue is a small, tranquil island where there's not much else to do than enjoy the incredible beaches (considered to be among the most beautiful in the world - and considered to be among the most impressive of Seychelles attractions), swim and snorkel, and take in the natural beauty of this tiny paradise. It is also possible to go on fishing trips or visit nearby islands like Coco Island. The shores surrounding the island are teaming with marine life, and it's easy to spot reef sharks, rays, sea turtles and many other species when snorkeling. There are virtually no cars on the island (just a few services cars) and surprisingly few tourists. Bicycles can be rented and it's a very pleasant way to get around.

Travel Tips from people who've been to La Digue
Aucune voiture sur cette ile, acheminement vers les hôtels en char à boeufs :) Impératif: s'armer d'une bonne paire de chaussures pour faire le tour de l'ile en VTT (surtout pendant la saison des pluies, avec de l'eau jusqu'aux mollets), et ne pas hésiter à s'arrêter dans les petits villages: les habitants sont prêts à vous accueillir pour partager un dîner à base de poisson grillé :))
Regardless where you stay, rent a bicycle and move around. It's very small and everything can easily be explored. Visit the "Grande Anse" in the North - beautiful beach, mostly empty although not really for swimming as the waves are huge (but impressive).
Rent a bike in the little village and pedal 20 minutes south to Anse Source D'Argent beach for a totally idyllic experience! Beautiful granite boulders, swaying palm trees and fine sand beaches, all fringed by a beautiful coral atoll. Amazing!
