    La Passe

    September 14, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    We had not seen a sunset on the islands before, due to bad weather in the first days, and due to other activities on the wrong side of the island on other days. But on the last day, after the snorkeling trip, when we walked back to our hotel, already sooo blessed with that wonderful day, when we saw the sun going down!! We were sooo happy!

    Seeing the sun going down might not sound like the greatest adventure ever, but it was like the Grand Finale to our oh-so-wonderful journey to paradise. (omg, how corny! *cough*)

    Grande Soeur, Coco Island & Felicite

    September 14, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    On our last day in the Seychelles islands we did the only right thing left to do and went to a snorkeling excursion by Catamaran.

    From La Digue we first went to Grand Soeur (Big Sister), where we had lots of fun! A small boat took us to the beach and we went snorkeling around. Wonderful "things" we have seen underwater, including corals, a great variety of tropical fish (new ones we had not seen before), turtles and even a small riffshark. When we got back to the boat, we had a nice barbecue.

    From the Sisters we went on to Coco Island and on to the island called Felicite. Everywhere we went snorkeling and also enjoyed the time on the boat.

    It was just a perfect last day! <3 <3 <3

    (and it was not over yet.. :) )

    Anse Source d'Argent

    September 12, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

    The next day we went walking the other side of the island, destination: The most famous beach of the Seychelles islands: Anse Source d'Argent. To get there, we had to walk through L'Union Estate Park, which costs an entrance fee, but is a really nice place. We walked through a garden of herbs, went into a souvenir shop (to buy vanilla and chili), you come accross a coconut oil press, a vanilla plantation and lots of beautiful spots by the sea. We liked it, but could hardly wait to finally get to the beach.

    When we finally made it, it was stunning. We expected the beach crowded, but there were only about 30 people on a very large (long) beach. The attached pictures will say more than words can.

    Anse Banane

    September 11, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    On Praslin we went snorkeling every day. One day, we went for a walk afterwards. We walked from the hotel to the left, where the road would take us to Anse Banane. We walked until the road came to a dead end, turned around and went to Chez Jules. We had heard about this place before, but we weren't hungry so we went inside anyway and had the best smoothie ever. (Okay, maybe that's slightly overpraised, but it was really good, especially with that view. :) )Read more

    Anse Banane

    September 11, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ 🌬 35 °C

    Look who we met when we took a walk to Anse Banane. We named her Hildi. :)
    We were very lucky to meet her (or him) walking free, not captured in some kind of cage.

    Patatran Village Hotel

    September 10, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    At our second hotel we got a great "room" called Alamanda, which is not only a room, but the honeymoon suite / bungalow. It has 3,5 rooms including a master bedroom, a very large bathroom with both shower and bathtub, a small extra toilet and little room with 2 extra sinks, and a living room. Also it has a large terrace, which we didn't use. Since the room lies on a hill, far away from the rest of the hotel (bar, restaurant, pool etc.) we spent most of the time downstairs on a lounger by the ocean/pool (when in the hotel) or exploring the island. We only went to our room to shower, change or sleep.

    The minute we came to the hotel and were checked in, we got into our swimsuits, grabbed a lounger and went snorkeling! We have been going snorkeling a few imes before, but only in the Mediterranean Sea. This first snorkeling adventure was SO EXCITING! Going snorkeling was a major point when we decided where to travel and what we saw just on this first attempt was amazing! We saw lots of tropival fish without even trying, and there was also a sea turtle and a ray (unfortunately I don't know which kind). It was SO. MUCH. FUN.

    Chalet Cote Mer

    September 10, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    This is what our first hotel Chalet Cote Mer on Praslin looks like as seen from the sea. We took this picture as we left Praslin and moved on to our second home on La Digue.

    In our first week on Praslin we had a little weather trouble. We has more rain than expected and spent a lot of time on the hotel. Since we only had 4 nights, it wasn't too bad though. One day we took the beforementioned island toor, on another day we walked around on our own, checked out the surroundings of our hotel. The other day we took the bus and went to Anse Volbert again to do some shopping and get more beach time.

    The weather changed as soon as we left Praslin and the second half of our journay was spoiled with lots and lots of sun. :)

    Anse Lazio

    September 7, 2015 on the Seychelles ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    The last stop of a fantastic day around Praslin: Anse Lazio. A wonderful beach, where I wish we would have had more time.

    In case someone's wondering: We booked the tour with Mario (edelweiss tours) online, and we were very, very satisfied and we can highly recommend booking with him. You can find him on TripAdvisor etc., facebook, instagram etc. :)Read more
