As with all of the islands, a beautiful location. Unfortunately, Curieuse has a bit of a petting zoo atmosphere.

The giant tortoises were so cool to see and interact with. Beautiful little natural paradise. Awesome short hike across the island to the beach. 10 min water taxi ride from Praslin. Would definitely recommend!

On curieuse you can experience the giant aldabra turtles as they roam around freely, can feed them and take pictures. They're very friendly and curious, many approach you, looking for food. It's a shame, that everywhere else, they're always imprisoned. There's a nice walk across...More

I can't remember what we paid for the tour. Geoli Tours picked us up at our hotel that morning. Contact them for all other details. They were absolutely terrific and we would use them again.
