La Plage Source d'Argent, Seychelles

Plage Source D'Argent, Seychelles

The Seychelles Islands are granitic peaks in the middle of the Indian Ocean, about 1,000 miles east of Nairobi. You can fly direct to Mahe Island, the main island, on Kenya Airways.

From there, take a local flight to Praslin Island, a 20 minute flight to the north. Get across Praslin to the boat dock at the east end of the island.

Then take boat to La Digue, a tiny island about 30 minutes to the east. You can ride a bike around La Digue in just a couple of hours.

Don't miss La Plage Source d'Argent (Silver Spring Beach), where huge weather-worn boulders make many tiny beaches and coves, there are fabulous tropical fish in the tide pools, and the swimming is fine.

Nori's Reply: The boulders are intriguing. I searched Google Image to see more, Greg. This is truly one of the world's most intriguing beaches visually.

It's a lot of work to get there, but it sounds like it's worth the effort. I do hope there's a good beach bar/restaurant? Thanks so much for telling us about this unusual, beautiful beach.

The beach's name means "The Source of Money Beach," by the way. I wonder where that came from?

Big Boulder Beaches: Virgin Gorda
by: Carol Richardson

On the topic of "boulder beaches," we have Virgin Gorda here in the Caribbean with these wonderful big boulders, a day trip from Tortolla.

A really fun beach to explore is called "The Baths," with a trail where you can climb over and under these boulders and swim in water pools.

There are houses with the boulders in their yards, which are bigger than the houses! Talk about rock gardens, wow!

It is a sight to see when you fly over the island too!
