What to see in Seychelles
The second largest island in the Seychelles situated 44 kilometres northeast of Mahé. The island was once a hideout for pirates and Arab traders. In 1768 it was renamed Praslin in honur of the French diplomat César Gabriel de Choiseul, Duke of Praslin. Praslin is a well known tourist destination, with many beaches and hotels. There are also tropical forests, home to birds such as the Seychelles Bulbul and endemic Black Parrot.
