Praslin Island


Anyone travelling by boat from Mahé to Praslin, which is located around 37 km north-east of the main island, will notice a towering hilly landmass from the sea, which appears to be bright green and rises up on the horizon. Passing by the island’s southern coast, you will come to a wide, natural bay, where Lazare Picault, who discovered the island in 1744, had anchored his ship before going on to explore Mahé. He immediately named Praslin the “Ile des Palmes”, not knowing at the time that he had just come across the Coco de Mer Palm, one of the rarest and most unusual plants in the world.
