La Digue: An Incentive Travel Destination

Some people, when planning a vacation, want to vacate themselves from the world, from the noise, from people, and especially from other tourists. To some, trendy and popular vacation destinations just do not quite cut it. Some people wish to feel secluded, as if there is a tiny little charming and beautiful place in the world that no one knows about, and when they go to that place, it feels like it is solely theirs. If the previously mentioned aspects describe your sentiments toward what a vacation should be, then traveling to La Digue in the Seychelles, one of the islands found in this republic, should be your top priority when planning your next adventure travel. However, if you are lucky enough to work for a company that offers an employee travel incentive program, perhaps you can get a travel company such as ours to book it for you, paid for by your company.

As previously mentioned, La Digue is a small island and part of the Republic of Seychelles. The island is only inhabited by two thousand people, most of whom live in the western villages. Just to get to La Digue, one has to fly and then take two separate ferry rides, so  believe us when we say this place is secluded and for those who truly wish to get away from it all. However, on the island, one can enjoy fishing, sailing, boating, snorkeling, diving, trekking, and, of course, what people most notably come here for—relaxing on the beach. For those who work in a stressful environment, a vacation that offers more rest and relaxation than it does crazy adventures might just be what the doctor ordered.

The walks and trails can offer a bit of exercise and adventure, as well as incredible scenery and a chance to see animals that cannot be found in any other place in the world. If you are lucky, you might catch a glimpse of the rare Paradise Flycatcher, which is a critically endangered species of bird. Other unique animals uncommon in other places in the world, but can be found in La Digue include giant tortoises, the coconut crab, fruit bats, and sheath-tailed bats, among others.

Why go somewhere everyone knows about, where you will feel like just another tourist crowded the area during its popular season. Instead, travel to an island most people do not know about, and simply show them the pictures you took of the beautiful beaches with white, soft sand and crystal clear ocean water, along with the photos of wondrous tropical plants and uncanny species of animals endemic to La Digue. If you get the opportunity to use the wonderful benefit of an employee travel incentive program to go to this tiny, quiet, and beautiful island, then be sure to take complete advantage, as you will not find another tropical island offering this kind of relaxation, coupled with unique experiences waiting to be had.
