    How to behave on La Digue

    Written on a signpost you will find some important infos about how to get in contact with the turtles, what they like and what they dont like and what might even be a danger for these turtles in La Digue, that are between 30 and 90 years old.
    And very important on the whole island of La Digue: dont walk barefoot in the parks or in the streets. On the beach and in the water it might make sense as well, even though you will mostly find pure sand there. But take a look at my last 2 Pictures: I also saw these 2 crabs on the beach and almost stepped on them...

    Palm Spiders

    Palm Spiders

    In La Digue I saw such spiders having their nets span over a path between various trees on the way to the famous beach "Anse Source D'Argent" and I just saw it in the very last moment, and the net was in a hight of about 1,7 meters above ground, so I would have hit it almost...
    And in another tour from Victoria the tourguide in Jardin du Roi took one of them and had it run over his hand in order to show us: These giant spiders are not really poisenous or dangerous for mankind, but of course you might get a shock when you walk in Jardin du Roi and all of a sudden there is such a spider in a giant net under one of the trees and you did not see it right away.
    You will find these spiders also close to the beach, where-ever they may build their net between the branches of a tree.

    The Seychelles have implemented foreign exchange restrictions. All foreigners visiting the islands have to pay for services, such as restaurants, hotels and activities with foreign currency, local Seychelles Rupees are not accepted. Therefore it is advisable not to carry large amounts of local currency, since these may only be accepted in a few shops on the islands and cannot be changed into foreign currency. The main foreign currency on the islands is the Euro.

    Be very careful with the sun: it can give you some nasty burns.
    And more invisible: be very carefull with the waves and waters of some of the bays. The undercurrent catches you before you know it and is very, very strong although it might not seem that way.
