Thinking About Seychelles & Praslin!

I've been looking at a little 7 night trip around May (I understand that this is a good time??) to this wonderful place...but on a budget. I know the travel to the Seychelles and the word "budget" don't normally go together, but I'm hoping we can still achieve it somewhat!

Came across Isles des Palmes as a very nice little place to stay - near Anse Takamara. However, two things concern me about staying in these types of places - food (self-catering) and location to snorkelling spots.

How easy is it to get food to cook and does it work out expensive? Any idea on rough costs? Or is it possible to buy meals at restaurants at a relatively good price?

I understand the beach by the hotel is too shallow for swimming. Is there any other beaches nearby where we could snorkel? We're not strong swimmers though, so don't want to venture past the reef drop off so bear that in mind!

Not sure where the nearest reef would be and how easy it is to get there on a daily basis. I understand getting around Praslin is quite easy by bus...is this really the case? Or can we bike it around? Or is car hire a must?

Any help would be appreciated! :)

Lanbousir is the best value restaurant we found in Seychelles. The most expensive dish (the chili grilled fish) is only 180 SCR. We found pancakes and icecream really delicious. The three women that are running the restaurant have good chef skills.
