It is also chosen by many couples who decide to celebrate their wedding! the island has only one luxury hotel, the rest of the accommodations being mainly guesthouses or self-catering apartments. the island does not have any airports or airfields, but a heliport is used to connect, by helicopter, the island of Mahé which is about 45 km away. the island of La Digue culminates at 333 m altitude. Here, the population is mainly black and many men wear dreadlocks at “Bob Marley”!
