La Digue, an island of striking beauty where tall coconut palms and gigantic boulders cradle glorious white sandy beaches. La Digue also offers a real insight into the life of the Seychellois people. After disembarkation at the jetty you will be greeted with a warm welcome typical of the island people unspoiled by the pressures of the modern world.
Proceed to l’Union Estate with its majestic colonial house. At l’Union Estate watch coconuts being processed into copra and oil and admire the giant tortoises in their pen close to one of the Seychelles largest granite boulders. Time for swimming at lovely Anse Source d’Argent Beach. Late afternoon, head back to the jetty for return journey to Praslin Island and subsequently to Mahe.”

Hello Kaptain Kenny readers,
This time we are on a journey through the islands of the Seychelles.
“She sells seashells by the seashore.”
(I don’t know why but as a child I often associated that tongue twister with this country. Did you?)
The island of La Digue is fascinating place. (Wiki page click here.) With a population of only 2000 people, apparently everyone knows everyone. For that reason, it makes a fantastic day trip. As you know from previous posts, we were based at the Hilton Northolme on the main island of Mahe and they were ever so kind and arranged an EPIC day trip for us of beautiful proportions. We went with the company mentioned above and everything was organised from bus pickup, transfer to the boat, lunch, all the sights on La Digue and the other spectacular island of Praslin. I’d highly recommend using that company for a good day trip to the surrounding islands in the Seychelles.
I often read other travel blogs to see what other people are doing and find I get so bored reading so much text. That’s why on Kaptain Kenny I try to focus it only on photography with a short captain. That way, if you like a place, you can look into it further.
If you have any comments/feedback/questions please send a comment as I do read them all 🙂

Orevwar! (This means goodbye in the Seychellois Creole language which is very similar to French. Although the locals will tell you they prefer to speak English as real French grammar is too difficult. Click here to find out more about their native language.)
