Staying at Ocean Villa gives you the choice of lazy hours and even days relaxing time at the beach in front of your holiday home or enjoying the charms of Praslin and its neighbouring islands at leisure.
We are very conveniently placed to explore Praslin island and its myriad attractions:
* Anse Lazio and Anse Georgette, two of the world's Top 10 beaches.
* Vallee de Mai - Explore the legendary Vallee de Mai, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only place in the world where the legendary double-lobed coconut – the coco de mer – grows.
* Visit La Digue for the day, the island where time stands still and where bicycles and oxcarts are still the main mode of transportation. The Cat Rose fast-ferry has trips to-and-from La Digue through-out
the day, and the journey between these 2 islands is only 15 minutes long.
* Don't miss the opportunity for a day visit by boat to the islands of Cousin, Curieuse and St. Pierre. Operators offer a full-day tour to visit the bird sanctuary of Cousin island, with a Creole BBQ lunch on
Curieuse island and a stop for snorkelling off St. Pierre island on your way back to Praslin.
* Deep-sea Fishing trips can also be arranged for your pleasure.
* Scuba-diving with PADI 5-star centres, exploring the wonders of the rich marine life, is also possible for experienced divers - a 1-day Introduction Course is available for beginners.
* Snorkelling with colourful fish, turtles and sting rays is an attraction not to be missed.
* Dining Out : Our self-catering rentals suit the independent spirit of most of our guests, who nevertheless enjoy going out of an evening or having someone cook for them in the own holiday home.
There is a good variety of restaurants within a radius of 3 to 10 minutes walk from Ocean Villa or a 15-minute drive away. You can even have pizzas delivered to your front door!
* Evening Entertainment : Apart from the discos, the bigger hotels usually have a live band performing, and the Casino de Praslin is a popular attraction for both visitors and local residents.
Judith, your hostess at Ocean Villa, will be happy to assist you with detailed information and booking arrangements.
