“Vallée de Mai Nature Reserve ("May Valley") is a nature park and UNESCO World Heritage Site on the island of Praslin, Seychelles. It consists of a well-preserved palm forest, flagship species made up of the island endemic coco de mer, as well as five other endemic palms. The coco de mer (Lodoicea maldivica), a monocot tree in the Arecaceae (palm family), has the largest seeds (double nut seed) of any plant in the world. Also unique to the park is its wildlife, including birds such as the rare Seychelles black parrot, mammals, crustaceans, snails, and reptiles. This forest, with its primitive plant and animal species, is a relict from the time when the supercontinent of Gondwana was divided into smaller parts, leaving the Seychelles islands between the present day Madagascar and India.”

“As simple as things can get.. Right at the Anse Boudin with nothing but a little palm leave roof to protect you from the sun you can eat the catch of the day overlooking the beautiful Indian Ocean. TIP: try the Crab Curry! A real Créol treat that keeps us going back there at least once a week.... No reservations needed but make sure you have placed your order before 15h as the kitchen closes at 15h30 and you'll miss out on their great food! ”
