Timing in Praslin
Tour operators in Mahé often run day-trips to Praslin to visit the famous Vallée de Mai, but this beautiful island deserves at least a few days of its own. At least half a day is needed to properly appreciate the aforementioned World Heritage Site. And then Praslin is a great spot from which to explore the numerous tiny islands that surround it, including the bird sanctuaries of Cousin and Aride, and gorgeous La Digue (if you're not planning to overnight there). With all of these attractions, Praslin merits a minimum of two nights, and if you want to take it easy and explore Praslin's beaches, at least four nights would be needed.
