Transport is generally by ox cart or bicycle on La Digue, a tranquil paradise and the most untouched of all the beautiful Seychelles islands. However, any part of La Digue can be reached in less than an hour on foot.The island is surrounded by coral reefs, which provide excellent diving and snorkeling opportunities and also protect the beaches, so the sea is safe for swimming. Fishing is also a rewarding experience.Inland, the woods of La Digue are full of rare and exotic plants, and the island is the only nesting place of the extremely rare Black Paradise Flycatcher.Daytrips to La Digue are possible, but a timeless paradise such as this, where life has remained unchanged for so many years, surely deserves a longer stay.
