La Digue Island is often considered to be the island you must visit when taking a trip to Seychelles. Out of the 115 islands that make this beautiful country, La Digue is the fourth largest in size and third largest in population. However, that is not much as the population of this island is a mere 2000 residents that live mainly in the village of La Passe. This leaves the rest of the island virtually uninhabited which lets the island retain its natural beauty.
