This heavily-forested granite island is located just 4 km from the northern coast of La Digue, and is a popular destination for day-trippers, with the crossing taking just twenty minutes. Approximately 3 km long and 1.3 km across, the island reaches a maximum elevation of 277 metres, a peak that shares its name with the island itself.
Until 2007, there was luxury accommodation here, booked directly through the La Digue Island Lodge. This accommodation had many prominent celebrity guests, including Steffi Graf and Tony Blair. Once upon a time, Félicité acted as a nobile exile, especially during the 19th century. For example, the Sultan of Perak was banished to the island, accused of murder. He was released a few years later.
The luxury resort is perfect as a secluded island getaway as well as part of a Seychelles island-hopping holiday; it is ideal for families as well as couples, particularly those celebrating a special anniversary and also makes the ultimate honeymoon retreat.
