What is a vacation without a party? You can find one even on a small island in the western Indian ocean with its own twist.
La Digue is home to some of the stunning beaches of Seychelles apart from nature reserves and lush green vegetation. Being a nature lover's paradise, however, doesn't mean that it has to be boring for everyone else! Although La Digue doesn't have the typical nightlife scene with loads of clubs and pubs, it has its own quaint way of partying. However, if one is looking for loud, crowded popular clubs, then La Digue is probably not the place to head for that.
1. Tarosa - The Best in Town
Tarosa is probably the most famous and only nightclub on the La Digue island. Apart from being a club, Tarosa also serves delicious food with local flavours. The open-air bar and club is a great way to let loose and party in La Digue. With the outdoor dance floor that overlooks the jetty, it is a great way to mingle with the local people and embrace their way of life. An added highlight is that a lot of local musicians, artists bands and DJs play their music here. As one party, they can sense the sea close by making it a unique experience. A great place to watch a sunset that'll be imprinted in your minds for the rest of your life!

Tips & Things to keep in mind
1. The legal drinking age in Seychelles is 18 years. People below the age of 18 aren't served alcohol as it is illegal to do so.
2. When consuming drinks, one should do so in moderation and ensure that they are safe
3. Unless one is completely in their senses, they should avoid driving as drunk driving can lead to a lot of accidents
So, what's stopping you? Go ahead and party (responsibly)!
