Long stretch of beach - there is a beautiful spot around every corner! There were few people, so it was very private. The small village is also worth a visit, and we purchased drinks and snacks there (much cheaper than at the hotels!). It was very pleasant to take a long walk along the Cote d'Or.

Anse Volbert is a great beach to relax on. The view is fantastic. The beach is very long so there is plenty of room for everyone. On high tide it becomes super short and you cant really be there, but that is the only con of this place.

I really like the beach here, although it was a bit seaweedy, but it is SW monsoon so to be expected. Lovely sand and nice for long walks. Lots of sealife for snorkling, including rays and turtles. A few options for food and drink and local shops/supermarkets, it would be easy to do the self catering/villa options here rather than... More

Anse Volbert or Cote d'Or is a small village with 3 super markets and about 10 restaurants, there is an ATM and it is well connected through the local bus system. The beach is clean, not very busy, no hawkers to bother you. The water is clean and safe for children

Lovely to swim, fairly shallow for a long way out. Safe for children. Nothing to see for snorkelling.

Private, calm, beautifull and close to beautifull points to dive. We took some spectacular photos with almost no one trying to sell you something.

On the face of it, Anse Volbert has everything you look for: it is spacious, there are deck chairs, there is shade, swimming is good, restaurants are close, etc. Yet there is something here missing and as strange as it may sound it is nothing less than the typical large boulders. There is simply some sort of intimacy that is... More

I have been told that beaches vary greatly in the Seychelles depending on what time of year it is. We visited in April and had a lovely time on this beach. The sand if fine and soft, the water was calm and clear. Cafe's near the beach were much cheaper than at some of the more famous beaches and we... More

It is an average beach compared to other Praslin beaches. The sand is soft. It is a very long beach thus you can enjoy a long walk. There are few restaurants near it which serve decent food.

Sea and currents vary sensibly in the Seychelles from month to month. For January, I would not waste my time there! It's beautiful, but not good for swimming at all! If you just look for lying under the sun and some relax, it is ok, but if one looks for more, there are other better beaches on Praslin.
