La Passe is a quaint tiny village settlement on the northern shores of La Digue. The area occupied by La Passe extends no more than 4 square kilometres on the island, and its area encompasses the majority of forested land on the east side. As part of La Digue Island, which is the third largest island in the Seychelles archipelago - after Mahe and Praslin Island, La Passe is certainly as exciting and beautiful as its larger part. A pretty sweep of red-tiled rooftops, cosy cafes, serene beaches and a host of comfortable accommodations makes La Passe a memorable visit during your stay.
Set on the azure blue waters of the Indian Ocean, the village of La Passe is a treat to the eyes of the beholder. The sleepy seaside town is everything you wish for in a fitting vacation - pristine beaches, seaside cafes, tiny souvenir shops and the fresh breath of air you have always yearned for. There are numerous places of interest around La Passe, some of which are:
Anse Severe: Located adjacent to the northernmost tip of La Digue island, Anse Severe is a haven for people seeking relaxation. Giant turtles are a major attraction here. It is also a well-known snorkelling point because of its rich reefs. All in all, this is a safe, beautiful and easily accessible beach.
Point Carpe Barbi: A prominent sunset point, Point Carpe Barbi provides stunning views of the La Digue coastline. You can easily spend an afternoon here gazing at the ocean blue horizon. The scenic allure of Seychelles truly comes alive here.
La Digue Marina: As one of the main points of entry on the island, the busy marina point is an excellent place to wade away your time at one of the snug restaurants and cafes on the seaside.
Due to the country's appeal as a fantastic tourist destination, the Seychelles International Airport in Mahe operates to international destinations like Frankfurt, Abu Dhabi, Colombo, Mumbai, Doha, London etc. La Digue is approximately 90 minutes northeast of Mahe and neighbours the island of Praslin. The island of La Digue does not host an airport, and hence, one is required to fly to Victoria in Mahe and continue by ferry, usually via Praslin island. Several ferries run between Praslin and La Digue. You can directly approach La Passe on the western shore which directly connects to several piers on Praslin island.
You can get around La Passe by foot or by hiring a bike. There are several bike rental services around the town.
