Praslin Island – Seychelles (Part 2 of 2)

  • You get 360 degrees view from the top.PRASLIN (45)
  • I saw some fruits, similar to Indian Jamun ( Java Plums)
  • PRASLIN (46)
  • This is one of the palm tree. Can you spot the green gecko ?

  • The decent begins.  It takes around one hour to reach the top. It is not a continuous hike. The guide stops at many places, and gives detailed information. So you don’t get tired actually.

  • Here you can replenish you water supply ! It is completely safe water to drink.

  • PRASLIN (60)
  • A lovely orchid at the gate.
  • PRASLIN (61)
  • The drive from Fond Ferdinand to our nest destination, Anse Georgette was alongside seashore. We stopped at some places, just for the clicks.

  • PRASLIN (63)
  • PRASLIN (64)
  • PRASLIN (66)
  • This is a natural formation.
  • PRASLIN (67)
  • In Seychelles, all the beaches are open to public by law. Hence the beach, Anse Georgette, even though is inside a star property, is accessible. You need to pass thru the property and along their golf course to get there. You need to inform the property in advance. (This was promptly done by Coconut services, for us.)

  • It is a bit long walk, but well worth it !
  • PRASLIN (73)
  • PRASLIN (74)
  • PRASLIN (75)
  • PRASLIN (76)
  • PRASLIN (77)
  • Finally we reach the beach. The waters are deep blue as always, but around this time of the year, the dead sea weeds, washes to the shore. Though not any dangerous, we avoided entering the sea. ( In Seychelles, beaches are not novelty, we visit a different beach every weekend.)
  • PRASLIN (78)
  • PRASLIN (79)
  • There are no food stalls or even drinking water available on the beach. You need to carry it. There are a couple of fruit sellers though, and this is what (at the most) you get there.
  • PRASLIN (80)
  • As most of the beaches in Seychelles, even this beach is clean and beautiful. The only problem is, around this part of the year, lots of dead sea weed is washed to the shore. This is not a big issue, as the weed is floating at certain spots and you will always find a clean spot, to swim, if you wish too.

  • PRASLIN (83)
  • We had to catch return flight to Mahe, so we wound up early. We had a leisurely walk to the gate of the property, where our taxi had come to pick us up.
