I went to all the beaches on the island. This one is the best. May not have the best photo ops for rocks etc. but is about 2km long and beaufiul. Can't beat that.

Anse Volbert is a wonderful beach, with an amazing colour and waves. It is safe for swimming and relaxation but not for snorkelling. Actually we've met some stingrays... The beach is affected by seaweed during December..

This beach is about 3 km long, the sand is incrediblly fine and white. Unbelievable, but we did not encounter any garbage at all, and no shells. It all looked like a hologram on the StarTrek Voyager...
