The Ocean Jewels Resort from Praslin is a fantastic experience, while Brenda and Paul are very good hosts, always friendly, patient and willing to help you with anything that you need. The apartments are very cozy, while there are a lot of good places to buy food from : some small shops close-by, or larger shops from the Grand Anse Center. For those who are willing, fresh fish can be bought at a really good price, which can be cooked in the perfectly equipped kitchen.
In order to travel around Praslin island, you can rent a car or use the public transport network, which is both efficient and cheap : 5 SCR per trip, the equivalent of 0,3 euros. For efficiency in organization and in order to include as many areas of interest around the island as possible, you will need to acquire the bus timetable beforehand.
Valee de Mai is a must-see amd a really unique experience : here you will feel just like in a prehistoric forest where you would almost expect a couple of dinosaurs to suddenly appear. There are a couple of brilliant beaches that should also be included in your tour. If you want to see Anse Georgette, talk to Brenda, and she will announce your arrival to the main gate of Lemuria Resort, on whose territory you will need to pass through and which has an impressive golf field. In order to get to Anse Lazio you will have to undertake a longer road, but it's worth it. For a high point landscape of the island and the surrounding sea you should go to the zone called Zimbabwe, which is less frequented by tourists and has a number of sharp turns and steep roads on the way to the top.
