Felicite - Seychelles

Felicite is one of the satellite islands located 4km off La Digue in the Seychelles in the Indian Ocean. It is a steep granitic island which was a coconut plantation up to the 1970s and supported a population of some 50 people. In the late 19th century, Felicite was home to the Sultan of Perak, one of Seychelles' most colourful exiles, who spent five years on the island before moving to Mahe. Felicite is known for its huge, smooth granite boulders. These black granite boulders are along the shore and in the water and are the home to many species of marine life. The highest point on the island is 213m from where you can get spectacular views of the surrounding islands.
