Best Secret Islands on Earth 2010
Seychelles: La Digue
Great Value Though this spot is often overlooked by island-hoppers, it may seem familiar because in-the-know photographers and Hollywood location scouts love La Digue and its jagged, towering granite boulders that jut into the sea at Anse Source d’Argent. Explore the rugged landscape before a night at La Digue Island Lodge (doubles from $204), either in a thatched-roof bungalow or in one of 69 rooms set in the Yellow House (a 19th-century colonial building that’s now a national monument).
T+L Tip: The best sunset views are at Veuve Restaurant (dinner for two $87), which serves local Creole dishes, including saffron-dusted tuna.
