Nid d'Aigle in Seychelles, located in the third largest island La Digue, after Mahe and Praslin, possesses everything one wishes for in a getaway. From basking under lovely sunshine in some of the world's finest beaches and gazing over turquoise-tinged waters of the Indian Ocean to snorkelling with a treasure trove of marine life, Nid d'Aigle has it all. With an altitude of 333 meters above sea level, this is the ultimate viewpoint. The name, which translates to "Eagle's Nest", is the perfect destination for those who'd love to trek. Nid d'Aigle is also a terminus that takes you from La Fayet through the slopes of Mont Blanc. It takes about 45 mins to get here offering scenic views enroute.
Nid d'Aigle is famously known for exhibiting unmatched commanding views of La Digue Island and the tranquil blue horizon all around. The 360-degree view encompasses the whole of the island along with extremely fantastic blue hues of the Indian Ocean - turquoise, azure, navy blue, cyan, you name it.
To add to the beauty, the landmasses of Praslin Island, Felicite Island and Ile Ronde are present in the far end of the horizon. Before you get to the peak of Nid d'Aigle, you come across a small cafeteria called Snack Bellevue (meaning 'beautiful view' in french). The island is also home to tropical fruits like passion fruit, jackfruits and 20 different kinds of bananas which are unrivalled when it comes to being sweet and fresh.
After Snack Bellevue, you need to proceed for another 15 minutes (by foot) to the top of Nid d'Aigle for an exhilarating panorama of the island and the seascape around!
