Explore the wonders of Praslin, Seychelles’ second largest island. With a small population, life on Praslin is relaxed and the breath-taking scenery pristine. Let Mason’s Travel guide you around the island and visit its two most famous attractions!

Visit the famous Vallée de Mai, a unique biosphere well deserving of its allocation as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Once believed to be the original site of the Garden of Eden, this magical place offers a forest of larger than life palms which play host to an array of rare and endemic species. Discover the Coco der Mer palm and its iconic seed, the largest on earth, as you take a leisurely guided tour through this awe-inspiring primeval forest.  

Next, visit the world famous Anse Lazio. This pristine beach, with its white sands and clear waters, is fringed by lush vegetation and bordered by magnificent granite boulders. Here you can swim, sunbathe or relax on the soft sands of one of Seychelles’ finest strands.
