A fairly large beach for the Seychelles, Anse Volbert is beautiful for long walks, but no less pretty! Water is slightly more murky, but still beautiful to swim in. We got to... read more

a bit crowded and lots of seaweeds, not much scenery. Better beach available if you drive / travel further from this spot.

A fairly large beach for the Seychelles, Anse Volbert is beautiful for long walks, but no less pretty! Water is slightly more murky, but still beautiful to swim in. We got to experience the view of the beach and St Pierre from our hotel every morning!

The beach was quiet, private and beautiful. The sea is calm and warm. It was lovely to spend a relaxing day on.

Is a very nice long long long sand beach, though the water is not so amazing like the ones of Anze Lazio. Nevertheless is a very quite spot, perfect to enjoy with the family.

The water was so warm and shallow that we were able to kayak right out St Pierre Island on a calm day. Sea temp around 29C.

Long beach perfect to run. Quiet and only few people on the beach. I found this beach much more beautiful than Anse Lasio. There is restaurants. You can go by bus. I like it.

I had a wonderful two week trip on Seychelles until I came to this beach and one of those tour operators "salesmen" came to talk to me. I was interested to get to Aride and Curieuse islands. He asked me to pay a deposit to reserve a trip for the next morning and I did. Next morning the sea at... More

My husband and I have been to Seychelles and in particular Praslin four times over the past view years. All international flights arrive at Mahe island. Transfer to Praslin via smaller aircraft takes about 15 minutes. Anse Volbert is roughly a half hour's drive from the airport at Praslin. Anse Volbert is in my opinion the best place to stay...

It is one of the nicest and calmest beaches in Praslin and most of the hotels, the shops and the restaurants are located there and there is also a life guard on duty. I did not give it a "very good" since the beach is not as clean as some of the other praslin beaches and it has a seaweeds... More
