Cheap Flights to Praslin

Praslin overview

The idyllic tropical island of Praslin is the second largest of the Seychelles and one of the most popular with visitors. Its main attraction is the surrounding coastline and miles of stunning coral reef, teeming with fish of every hue and shape. Travellers arrive from Praslin flights, cruise liners and yachts to enjoy the white sand beaches, explore the palm forests or scuba dive in the warm waters. The Valle de Mai, a primeval forest, was declared a Unesco world heritage site in 1983. The palm forest is the home of the coco de mer, a spectacular palm tree whose leaves can reach six metres wide and 14 metres long. The wildlife that inhabits the forest is just as rare, including three kinds of unique birds.

Flights to Praslin take a mere 15 minutes from Mahe with Air Seychelles. It’s also possible to arrive by boat, which takes approximately two hours, across the turquoise sea.
