La Digue / Seychelles
The forgotten paradise La Digue has acted for many decades as a secret tip. The 5-km-long and 3-km-wide island is the fourth largest island of the Seychelles and here live only 2,500 inhabitants and a sparse number of tourists.
Because of the location only 5 degrees south of the Equator there is a tropical climate all year round. Life on the island is undemanding. Tourism is only cautiously expanded to preserve the charm of the Seychelles. Hospitality is top priority and visitors are often invited into private homes. The Seychellois enjoy receiving gifts. Paved roads inland are rare. The buildings which are not higher than the surrounding trees, create a harmonious landscape picture. The almost untouched islands of the Seychelles offer idyllic lagoons, picturesque bays and white beaches.
