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!

This beach is so large than you just can’t judge it easily on its entirety because it has stretches of very quiet and calm beach and areas more busy with people and restaurants. Overall a great beach to spend a few hours relaxing in a...More

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.

I enjoyed this part of praslin and could recognize the white beach. During the snorkling we could see some worms, ray and small fishes in 50m distance to the beach. There are 3 diving center not so far away.

It's a nice beach, the sea is calm and not deep, ideal for families with children. At noon the beach disappear because of the high tide.

After going to Seychelles I realised that Anse Volbert and Cote D'Or beach are one and the same. My review also is therefore more or less the same. This beach is a starting point for many of the cruise that take people on a day...More
