Features of Accommodation on La Digue

Here are the key points you need to know, and for a more comprehensive overview of La Digue, you can read the detailed guide, which includes information on how to get there, beach ratings, and attractions on La Digue.

  • La Digue is a small island measuring 5 by 4 km.
  • There are almost no cars, and the roads are not congested. Choosing accommodation away from the road to avoid traffic noise disrupting your sleep is pointless. La Digue doesn’t have such roads, and by 9 p.m., the entire island is usually asleep.
  • The location of your accommodation on La Digue doesn’t matter much. You can reach any point on a bicycle within 20 minutes.
  • In the center of the island is a granite rock with a peak at 350m above sea level. The village where everyone lives is situated on a plain, so your walks won’t involve significant elevation changes.
  • However, starting from this point: -4.356472, 55.835472, the road experiences a sharp increase in elevation. This is the only street where houses are on a slope. If you prefer not to walk or ride a bike uphill, avoid renting accommodation on this street.
  • Accommodation on La Digue mainly consists of villas and apartments owned by locals. There are no major chain hotels like on Mahe or Praslin. For detailed information on accommodation types in Seychelles and their peculiarities, check the linked article.

This is the central, main, and busiest road on La Digue. You don’t need to worry about noisy streets or all-night discos under your window; they simply don’t exist on La Digue.

Useful to know:

Since the island is very small, and the village itself occupies only a third of the island, there’s not an infinite amount of accommodation for tourists. It’s not like Vietnam or Thailand. La Digue’s rental occupancy is over 90% throughout the year. This means that the closer your travel date, the less adequate accommodation you’ll find for reasonable prices. Don’t delay; book your accommodation right after purchasing your tickets.
  • A unique aspect of apartments on La Digue is that many don’t have kitchens. This means you’ll be dining in restaurants or opting for takeout. There are two excellent articles on this topic that cover all Seychelles islands; I recommend reading them:

Personal recommendation from the author: Check out Chateau St Cloud. It’s the first plantation-style house on La Digue where the first island governor lived 250 years ago. They’ve preserved the atmosphere of that time, combined with modern renovations, a pool, a stunning garden, and contemporary rooms. This place is fantastic; there’s nothing else like it on La Digue!

Travel Tips

Here are a few additional tips that will help you:

  • La Digue is a very green island, with 70% of it covered in jungle. There can be quite a few mosquitoes at times. Bring a plug-in insect repellent from home; it quickly solves all sleep-related issues. Check what else to bring to Seychelles.
  • There’s no need to pay special attention to the proximity of the beach. There are dozens of beaches, and in most cases, no matter where you stay, the nearest one will be 3-5 minutes away by bicycle.

In conclusion, if you plan ahead and address the accommodation question on La Digue in advance, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. Yes, there are no luxurious 5-star hotels like on Mahe, but La Digue offers a completely different experience. Apartments and hotels on La Digue cater to various preferences, with budget-friendly options available for under 100 euros per day (yes, for Seychelles, 100 euros is considered budget), as well as those where you might pay 300-500 euros. The choice is entirely yours.
