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.
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:
- ride the ox cart
On the way by bike to Barcardi Beach. From here ( Pte. Source C'Argent ) continue on foot.

Vreni and Gerhard: "on the beach"
Gerhard on the road exploring La Digue. The island can be discovered in an hour. Unfortunately, you can't drive all the way around because of rock formations.
fascinating combination of rocks and palm trees
The beaches are bordered by granite rocks. This gives an intimate atmosphere.
This palm tree was very popular as a photo subject. Everyone wanted to sit on it.
Barcardi Beach, actually on the map it says: Anse Pierrot
The first bathers are already here. Now you just have to imagine the sound of the sea.
