The three main Islands Praslin, La Digue and Mahe are granite based while the outlining islands are coral atolls and with them bring a wealth of marine life such as whale sharks, giant turtles and manta rays as well as corals and colourful fish in abundance. There are lots of dive centres with instructors to help beginners and certified divers alike to get the most from this beautiful location.
This island is the third largest populated of the Seychelles and has recently increased its tourist industry to around 20 guest houses and hotels. The modes of transport on the Island are bicycle and ox and cart There are a few privately owned cars used by the hotels but the roads are not wide enough for them to pass each other. The island is also a nature reserve and is home to the rare Black Paradise Flycatcher and has a vast variety of marine life around its coastline including rays and sharks making it popular with divers.
