A picturesque island famous for its fragrant vanilla & wild flowers. A haven for bird-lovers. It is the habitat of 2 of the world's rarest birds, the Seychelles magpie robin & the Seychelles black paradise flycatcher. La Digue boasts some spectacular granite formations. You can visit the copra factory at the old vanilla and cinnamon plantation, L'Union.
In 1968 the Council for Bird Preservation bought the island of Cousin & made it into a nature reserve, home to the brush warbler, which was almost extinct, plus 7 breeding species of seabird & hawksbill turtles. Even centipedes are protected.
