We are at 8km from Anse Lazio, voted as one of the 10 best beaches of the world, and at 6 km from the Valle de Mai, a Unesco world heritage site, where the unique Coco de Mer Palm grows. Both are easily reached either by car, bus, bike or if you enjoy hiking, by foot. Praslin has many beaches and coves worth discovering.
The Salazi track and Pasquere track are not far. Fond Ferdinand is also a much to recommend national park and excellent hike to do. Our staff at the reception will assist you to find your way around.
L’Hirondelle is situated in the tourism hub of Cote d’or, several hotels and fine restaurants are just a short walking distance away. If you wish to cook at home, there are a few shops close by for basic groceries, fruits can be bought by the beach, or you can listen for the fisherman blowing his big shell on the beach announcing that fresh fish is now for sale!
