The peaceful seclusion, of green hills and gorgeous beaches make La Digue one of the favorite islands in the Seychelles. The estate of l´Union with its fine, old house and large granitic boulders is one of the few remaining vanilla plantations left in the islands. La Digue is also home to the paradise flycatcher, a rare species found nowhere else in the world.
A few small shops and a boutique at the La Digue Island Lodge sell souvenirs, local arts and crafts and T-shirts.
The official currency is the Seychelles Rupee.
