La Digue - Day 1

Saturday 16th April

Today we left for the nearby island of La Digue so after packing and saying our goodbyes we made our way to the jetty returning our car to Elvis! The ferry ride was a short 15 minute crossing and the weather was very hot and humidity at 85%!! 

On La Digue the main forms of transport are bikes and walking but there are a couple of taxis so we didn't have to walk the 15mins to our new accommodation in the midday heat. On arrival we were delighted to find our villa more than met our expectations. Huge with a terrace and upstairs balcony set in a peaceful garden in the local neighbourhood. Nice vibe too.

After a rest we went out later in the day to explore downtown La Digue which consists basically of one street which runs parallel to the coast. 

Very nice area and great views over to Praslin and nearby islands. After sunset we made our way back getting a few provisions on the way.

Supper was a simple pasta meal on the terrace under a star filled sky!
