About LA DIGUE HOLIDAYS
A timeless oasis, hidden away in the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean, La Digue is the Seychelles of yesterday. In contrast to the hustle and bustle of Seychelles’ capital, Victoria, La Digue basks in the ageless tranquillity of a Seychelles almost unchanged since the earliest settlers stumbled upon the islands and claimed to have discovered the Garden of Eden.
Home to some of the country’s most beautiful beaches, La Digue boasts the friendliest of people and most relaxing of atmospheres. Bicycles and ox-carts are the transport of the day and the pace of life is necessarily slower, whether it’s relaxing on the beach or pedalling to a restaurant for a light tropical lunch.
When To Go
The Seychelles has a tropical climate all year round with a slight variation. During the summer season temperatures can reach up to the thirties however there are cool breezes from the southeast which can ease the humidity. During the winter season humidity can rise from the monsoon winds and sharp periods of rain can shower down between December and January however sunshine is still present through the wet season.
