NOW TRY PRASLIN, THE SEY­CHELLES

The Daily Telegraph - Travel - - FRONT PAGE -

The Sey­chelles were un­in­hab­ited un­til the 18th cen­tury. This ex­plains how a treescape as rare as the Val­lée de Mai sur­vived. This Unesco-listed mar­vel, at the heart of Praslin, is one of only two places where the coco de mer – a vast dou­ble-co­conut – grows (the other is neigh­bour­ing Curieuse). Early Bri­tish set­tlers be­lieved they had found the Gar­den of Eden.

A one-week stay at the Con­stance Le­muria (on Praslin) costs from £2,170pp, with flights and break­fast – via Turquoise Holidays (turquoise­hol­i­days.co.uk).
