Day 7 – Curieuse → Saint Pierre Island → Praslin


Curieuse Island is part of the Marine National Park and more than a hundred tortoises live here. The red coloured soil on this rugged island gave it the name of Red Island. The name was changed to La Curieuse by the French in 1768. The huge giant tortoise population was totally destroyed with the arrival of Europeans. In 1771, thinking it would make harvesting the Coco de Mer nuts easier, sailors set fire to the island. This killed off most of the plants and the remnants of the burned area is still seen today more than 240 years later. In 1833, the island was used as a leper colony and remained so until 1965. The colony was called Anse St. Joseph and the doctor’s residence, which dates from the 1870s, is a museum and educational centre today. There are also more than 500 tortoises walking around the island and eight different species of mangrove trees.

After lunch, visit Saint Pierre islet, a mass of rounded rocks crowned with a clump of tall palms swaying gently in the wind: typical and superb scenery of Seychelles photographed on countless occasions and printed a million times in tourism magazines! It is an excellent spot for snorkelling with magnificent underwater scenery.

Anchorage for the night in Anse Volbert, Praslin.
