Curieuse is the fifth-largest island among the Inner Seychelles islands. It is a mostly untouched paradise for visitors. It has a picturesque landscape with captivating granite rock beaches, majestic Coco de Mer palm trees, charming freely-roaming giant tortoises, and pristine mangrove forests. Its unspoiled wilderness creates the perfect backdrop for photo opportunities.
The Curieuse & St Pierre Island Excursion offers a seamless blend of adventure and relaxation.
The trip begins with our departure in the Kreol Taxi Boat from Café Des Arts Restaurant in Cote d'Or, Praslin. The Café des Arts Restaurant has the reputation as the best restaurant in Seychelles, what’s more, it’s situated right on the beachfront.
Our journey begins at 09:30 am every Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday. The cruise trip to Curieuse Island takes between 15-20 minutes.
You’ll have one of our talented tour guides with you. All our guides are fluent in English, French, and German, which ensures you're well-informed throughout the expedition.
Once you’ve arrived at Curieuse Island, you’ll step onto Baie La Raie Beach, where the iconic Aldabra giant land tortoises freely roam. Your experienced guide will share insights into these gentle creatures as you enjoy some leisure time with them. You’ll then go on a guided hike through the longest boardwalk in Seychelles, where you’ll see the diverse ecosystems and natural beauty of Curieuse Island. The hike is roughly 45 minutes long.
You’ll then reach one of the jewels of the Island, the Leprosy Doctor’s House. The Leprosy Doctor’s House is a 114-year-old structure nestled on Curieuse. It is a striking embodiment of Creole architectural finesse. Positioned near the National Marine Park, the Doctor's House has been transformed into a distinguished historical museum and education centre, inviting visitors to explore the rich narrative etched within its walls.
After enjoying the cool ventilation and beautiful architecture of the Doctor’s House, you’ll be met with tantalising smells beckoning you to join the local BBQ feast. The Creole-style architecture building is right next door to the BBQ shed, where you’ll enjoy a meal inspired by the aromatic and spice-infused culinary traditions of Seychelles.
After a satisfying Seychellian lunch, take your time soaking up the sun at the beach before we embark on a snorkelling adventure in the waters of St Pierre Island, where you’ll swim amongst the vibrant marine life.
The tour concludes with a return to Café Des Arts Restaurant, bringing the day to a close by 2:30 pm to 3:00 pm. To experience this unique experience, join the 2 February 2024 - Friday Special.
