Curieuse & St. Pierre
Departure at 09:15hrs to Curieuse Island (Baie Laraie), where most boat trips stop first.
On no other island in the Inner Seychelles, will you have the opportunity to experience
more than 200 giant land tortoises living freely. You will be surprised how active the
turtles can be compared to their confined species! Curieuse together with Praslin are the
only islands on which the Coco de Mer grows naturally.
Afterwards, a nice hike through dense mangrove forest leads to the other side to
Anse St. José, where a delicious Creole barbeque awaits you. The island was once home
to a colony of leprosy patients which resided here at Anse St. José. The ruins of their
homes can still be seen and the colonial-style Doctor’s House has been converted into a
museum and visitor center. After lunch, you have some time to enjoy the beautiful beach.
In the afternoon we continue to St. Pierre for snorkeling.
St. Pierre is one of many small islands in the bay of Côte d'Or on the northwest side of
Praslin and is located just 1.5 km from Anse Volbert beach. The washed-out granite rocks
and the small palm crown make this little island the epitome of the ideal Seychelles
island. Their image is very common in advertising for the Seychelles and is popular with
swimmers and snorkelers alike. In addition to countless reef fish you can also meet with
a little luck, sea turtles.
