Pickup info

Guests are picked up from the Hotel and dropped back after the site visit.

Located in the heart of Praslin Island, the Valleé de Mai Nature Reserve, a UNESCO protected World Heritage Site and well known as the Garden of Eden, is one place that visitors to the Seychelles should never miss. The Valleé de Mai tour is one of the most exciting excursions one can take part in for a half day, exploring the natural beauty of the Seychelles' tropical forest and indigenous plants. The nature reserve is unique and picturesque, and it is easy to see why it's commonly referred to as the Garden of Eden. The garden holds six endemic palms where the Coco de Mer bears the biggest coconut in the world. Listen to the melody of the Seychelles' native black parrot or hear the legendary story of the male and female Coco de Mer that meet at night in this true paradise.

  • Physicality: Low
    Physical rating

    From relaxed (low) to ones where you need to be fit to join in.


    No surprises here. These tours/activities are those most anyone can do if they are fine with fairly flat walks and getting in and out of transport.


    Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.


    These tours/activities require you to be very fit. Probably not suitable for children.

Stroll along the winding footpaths of a place so special it has been made a UNESCO World Heritage Site, beneath the shade of ancient, towering palms bearing the most extraordinary fruit of all: the famous Coco-de-Mer, a double-lobed coconut and the world’s heaviest seed in the perfect shape of a woman’s pelvis. Listen for the call of one of the world’s rarest birds, the Seychelles Black Parrot as you wander the valley and your guide introduces you to its spectacular treasures which includes one of the planet’s tiniest frogs, stick insects, chameleons and
six species of endemic palm.

Leaving the spellbinding wonders of the valley behind, we will take you to one of the most famous beaches on Earth, where ancient granite boulders stand jealous guard over a beach of bewitching beauty, lapped by crystal turquoise waters…a fitting close to an unforgettable
experience of Seychelles’ twin masterpieces.
