The beach is nice but not comparable with other beaches on the Seychelles. The water is shallow and the beach itself quite touristy. There are a lot of facilities around the beach which are offering food, drinks and also boat rentals etc.

Stopover for lunch at Côte d’Or, so took s quick stroll after visiting the souvenir shops along the road. A picturesque beach, white sand, blue waters and ample space for one and all. Pity didn’t get to swim here.

A large but plain beach. Lots of shops(markets) ,restaurants, hotels and guesthouses nearby. The local bus is passing close by. Now and then Stingrays visit the shallows of the beach, dont step on them! There is not so much interesting snorkeling areas here. There is...More

The beach is quite dirty and it is not worth the visit , except for scuba diving companies. Better spend your day at anse lazio.

This is the adjoining beach to the Paradise Sun resort. Very nice white powdery sands and clear water - though there is a bit of sea weed present. Great to swim in!

Anse Volbert is on the north of Praslin, it's a quite long stretch. As we were accommodated near by we used it for morning walks and swim and during the day visited other more beautiful ones. The beach is affected with low/high tides.

That is a good located beach to take excursions to other island - like Curiose, St. Pierre, Ave Maria and others of marine national park. The beach itself always has a low tide ocean, cloudy water (not clear), algae, but no waves.
