The Best Area & Where to Stay on Praslin Island
While significantly larger than its quieter neighbor La Digue, Praslin Island is still a very laid-back, relaxed island without the traffic and party scenes you’ll find on Mahé. However, there is still very solid tourism infrastructure including restaurants, resorts, hotels and transport services.
The most popular area to stay on Praslin is along Cote D’Or Beach (Anse Volbert). This is a resort and hotel strip with many luxury beachfront accommodation options and excellent restaurants. However, the truth is that there are many places to stay on Praslin beyond Cot D’Or.
If you’d prefer to stay near the famous Anse Lazio, there are a couple of great accommodation choices on the northern tip.
Since Praslin has an island airport, many people choose to fly here from Mahe. Consequently, there are a few great Praslin hotels and resorts near the airport on the east coast on Grand Anse.
Below are a few more great areas to stay on Praslin.
