Pearl Farm de Praslin
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 February 2016

Really wanted to visit this and arrived at 12.55. Sign said open 10am-4pm, 2 girls were on the porch eating takeaway food from polystyrene containers and surfing on their phones."you are open?" we asked. "Come back in an hour, we are having lunch" one said and went back to her phone. Needless to say, we did not bother.

Not much to see here in terms of the pearl production other than a short video, however nice selection of jewellery in the shop.

Good Place to go and buy a black pearl as an investment. Dont expect to get any real bargains though. Its pricey but still cheaper than other places around the world i guess.

Good place to visit if you are interested in seeing how pearls are farmed. Good selection of pearls to see at varying stages of growth. Always baby turtles to see too!

Since it is one of the places to visit on Praslin we had to go there. half an hour before closing. But don't worry, more time is not needed. If you are interested in pearls and what they do on the farm a nice lady escorts you to a nicely cooled room. Seated on a plastic chair you can enjoy a 6 minute film on a TV that shows something about the pearl farm. What is shown can be anywhere. It can be considered as a fun tour.
