Visited Felicite as part of an island hop snorkeling trip from La Digue. I appreciated a wide area to explore while snorkeling. As others noted, Seychelles has lost a significant percentage of their coral, but on Felicite you can see the efforts to restore some of it and indeed there was a decent variety of coral types off Felicite. Also, a good variety of fish can be found here. Sea Turtles were seen by others on my trip, though not me. I am not a super strong swimmer, nor have I much experience with snorkeling - at times the coral was close to the surface and I found myself panicking as the current was strong and very much pushed/pulled me more than I was comfortable with. I stayed more toward the deeper waters or pathways between coral and felt better. In comparison -Big Sister had the wider variety of fish, while Felicite had more coral. Little Sister was my least favorite snorkeling area - but honestly, everything in Seychelles is worth seeing.

While sailing on a catamaran, we spent a couple nights anchored right off of Felicity Island. There was very nice snorkeling, and the views were gorgeous. We had a wonderful visit.

Went on a morning snorkeling tour with Simplicity Boat Charter from La Digue, which covered Felicite, Grande Soeur and Ile Coco and did enjoy myself. yes the coral is mostly dead due to global warming and the tsunami, but they are working on implanting new shoots, and there are still lots of tropical fish to see, very similar to the ones we saw in Hawaii and Tahiti: Picasso trigger fish, batfish, parrot fish, butterfly fish of all sorts, black tigerfish, trumpetfish, etc, etc You can also swim to this private island (small channel to the left of the beach, amongst the corals covered with spiky urchins). I did, left my fins and mask on the beach, and walked away 5mn, to find out when I returned that my fins had been stolen...So, take them with you if you decide to walk on the beach. Very pleasant outing!

We were able to get a reservation for lunch at the resort Six Senses Zip Pasyon on the private island of Felicite. Normally they are closed to the public and you are not allowed to dock your boat at the marina. However, we called a couple of months ahead and asked politely to be able to enter the island and have lunch at the resort. They were not able to accommodate the catamaran we were on at this time but we were given permission to come ashore with the dingy... This was such a treat and for a couple of hours we were almost like the rich and famous. We saw a helicopter landing at the marina twice letting distinguished guest off and the feeling of appreciation for being able to visit just for a short time grew! If you are able to get permission to go ashore at this island, it is highly recommended.
