We went on the open glass boat terry. It was such a magical day on a magical calm beach, we got to see and feed huge turtles! And the meal was amazing! It was a great day

Firstly the island is beautiful, the view from the boat approaching is beautiful and the views from the little trail through the trees are beautiful. The surrounding islands are picturesque and the water shallow and blue. This is about where it ends, unfortunately us human folk are spoiling it somewhat. The trail around its a paved area with lots of spray painted red to lead the way. The tales we heard spouted from our guide and the other guides differed greatly. There were people EVERYWHERE! So many times in Mahe and La Digue we found ourselves alone on some wonderful beaches, if you wante paradise and snorkellying try Petit anse and Grand Anse on La digue or Anse Louis or Anse la Mouch on Mahe.

Once on Moyenne you're restricted to the one place there is to eat - (there's nothing Jolly about that Roger - the food is okish, abundant but just ok) and unfortunately only two toilets. If you're unlucky enough to find the toilets upstairs on the island they're THE MOST DISGUSTING toilets I've had the displeasure of seeing. The flies and the smell and despite their not flushing, lack of any doors at all - the men were still going there!

The restaurant is where everyone eats school canteen style at the same time. People were all over the tiny little beach looking miserable as we turned up.

I was so looking forward to the island and heard about the great snorkelling etc and the tortoises but please La Digue and the other surrounding islands are just beautiful and abundant in tortoises which seem much more comfortable and relaxed and wandering as will. Those on Moyenne were restricted in their movements and overall I couldn't wait to leave.

Walk around the island shouldn't take more than 45 minutes. Some bits may be hard going for a few. We met a few red faces coming back the other way.

I visited this isle, with Mason's travel tours. The entrance of this island is out of a movie, with waves coming on a sandy patch in between, from both sides. Very nice. They have some turtles in here, a wlaking trail of easy to medium effort. It was humid, so the walk was not that exciting, but views are breathtaking, along the way. Few graves, a small church and an observation point will greet you along the way. Thats all about, worth mentioning.

A romantic island with a fascinating history of pirates, buried treasure, a large collection of dogs and eccentric settlers. Wild ancient giant tortoises, a rocky walk, fabulous snorkelling but so sad the coral is dead.
