La Digue is the smallest of the three inhabited main islands of the Seychelles. Around 2200 inhabitants, who call themselves Diguois, live on 9.81 square kilometres. The beach section Anse Source d'Argent with its granite formations is considered a dream beach and is a popular tourist destination. The island is almost completely surrounded by a coral reef.

In the west of the island is the harbour and main town of La Passe, which is also the only larger settlement with infrastructure on the island. The south and east of the island is largely uninhabited.

Bicycle rental on La Digue

The means of transport on La Digue is the bicycle. You can rent one right at the pier. For those who don't cycle, there are two alternatives:
