La Digue is smallest of the three main inhabited islands, and has a tiny population of just 2,000 people.
With no airport, and just a handful of road vehicles,it has a wonderfully chilled vibe with most people getting about on bikes
As well as being home to Anse Source D'Argent , you an also find L’Union Estate, a coconut and vanilla plantation.
Fresh vanilla is growing everywhere and you can smell the sweet vanilla scent in the air. Its even available to buy, along with other spices
I actually found it fascinating because I had no idea how it was grown.
There are piles of old coconut shells are everywhere and you walk through the vanilla plantation, which makes for the most unusual site.
After a day exploring Anse Source D'Argent and the vanilla plantation we found a cute little restaurant by on the beach called the fish trap
We ordered a traditional Creole dish which was delicious, along with a cocktail or two. With a great view, id say this is one of the best restaurants on la digue .
