Beautiful very small island (that you can reach with boat or just take a kayak from Six Senses if you're staying there).

It is very unique and most of the time, there is noone on/around the island :)

Highly recommend a visit

A half day snorkelling trip to Coco Island was well worth the investment. The visibility was amazing and the number of fish immense. However, the coral is largely dead, which is not so great. A great experience never-the-less. The current around the island was quite strong on the day I went, so I probably wouldn't recommend this for beginner snorkellers.

Beautiful small rocky outcrop island just a few minutes kayak paddle from Felicite Island. Be warned the sea launch back can get hairy when the tide changes as the sea comes from both sides making it choppy.
The island is otherwise easily accessible at low tide as it has places to beach up.
If you’re up to a clamber over the rocks you can get to see Tropicbirds nesting and be careful not to stand on any young as they nest on the ground.
As to snorkelling we’ve heard it’s good but we didn’t get a chance as we spent to long watching the birdlife.

Coco Island used to be the go-to snorkeling spot - now it's largely skipped by the boat captains. This is definitely justified - the surrounding coral is largely dead, leaving the better snorkeling to other islands. Still beautiful, but no longer the best.

Went on a 1/2 day snorkeling outing from La Digue which also included Felicite and Grande Soeur islands.
It's the best thing to do when you are in La Digue (a charmless and boring island : only one good restaurant, no interesting museum, no shop, even the biking around is terrible as all bikes are rusty and out of shape). Just good enough for a 1 day visit).
So, if you are staying in La Digue, don't miss this lovely activity.
Morning outings (9.30 am) are generally preferable because the water is calmer, better and the weather as well. Was glad I did as it started raining at 1pm on our way back.
I chose a local and small boat charter called Simplicity, as I did not want to snorkel with crowds.
I appreciated the fact we were only 10 people on this small boat which took us a different way, so we ended up snorkeling alone in most places.
We had 4 stops:
-off Grande Soeur island over a coral reef, Yes, the coral has been badly damaged by tsunamis and global warming, However they are transplanting new shoots here and there, and there are still lots of tropical fish to see ( Picasso trigger fish, batfish, parrot fishing, butterfly fish, black tigerfish, trumpetfish, etc, etc).
-off Felicite island, again over coral, Here you can disembark and swim to this private island beach (small channel between the corals full of sharp urchins), and walk on the beach
-off Petite Soeur, where huge granite boulders plunge into the ocean and harbor Hawksbill Sea Turtles and beautiful schools of fish twirling about.
-off ile Coco, where we unfortunately did not snorkel as rain was starting. But we got close enough to take beautiful photos of this gorgeous islet.
All in all, an outing not to be missed.
It can get a bit choppy so if you're prone to seasickness, take medicine before the trip

In order to gain access to this beach one must be willing to hike to it. The hike is not just a flat trail; it requires climbing some steep and wet boulders. It took us approximately 40 minutes- I would recommend NOT to do it in flip flops and to take water with you. The beach surf is treacherous and swift - not something you would want to swim in. There is a natural pool on the far side of the beach by the rocks which is refreshing and beautiful.

What a beautiful little island to put anchor. We snorkeled to the island which was a little tricky, the last bit you have to be careful not getting scratched from the corals.
We where lucky that we managed to swim back to our catamaran before a big rain swept in.
If you anchor her by boat you have to pay 200 rubies/ person. It’s a nature reserve.
