Travel Diaries: Praslin Island

As promised, I want to show you today some more snapshots from our honeymoon, and I decided to make a three-posts series, one for each island where we stayed. Today I will start with the first one, Praslin, which is the middle size island among the three and the one with the fewest touristic influences. Everything there is so picturesque, with lush vegetation, hilly landscapes and amazing beaches. Also, on this island you can visit one of the most beautiful beaches in the world - Anse Lazio.
Renting a car there is a must in order to be able to see most of the island because the numerous serpentines and hills make it a bit difficult to walk.

On this island you can find the "Vallée de Mai" Nature Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage, which is a valley in the heart of Praslin National Park, an area which was untouched until the 1930s and still retains primeval palm forest in a near-natural state. Here grows the famous Coco de Mer, which you will see below, and it is the largest seed in the plant kingdom. Rare species of birds, such as the black parrot, also live in this area. Walking through this small jungle at 30 degrees Celsius and 88% humidity is quite an experience, but definitely a worthy one.











Before getting on the second island, we decided to make a cruise to see other three smaller islands, well actually just to snorkel around two of them, Coco Island & Felicité Island, and see the third one - Curieuse Island, with its giant tortoises, mangroves and crabs. A little hiking there didn't hurt..too much. :)








Hope you enjoyed the pics!
Have a great week:)

P.S.: A bit offtopic, but we shall not forget about the other reason why we're here and that is fashion, so the ones from CHOIES (you remember THIS and THIS) suggested me to show you a really cool sleeveless t-shirt, which you can find now ON SALE for only 9,90$ !!
