Restaurants are expensive, there is no budget option and Many drug and alcohol addicts hanging around. They are not annoying, but you don't really feel save walking around.

This beach is a perfect hangout for the day. Beautiful white sands, shallow water, nice views and enough shade under the palm trees. Perfect for a day visit, no matter if alone, couples or with family! However beware of beach boys offering day tours by boat! Especially the one between Café Des Arts and the Pizzeria in a small hut... More

This was one of my favourite beaches in Praslin. It is very long and shallow. I would suggest to explore the right side of the beach. At the very right there is a beautiful rock/cliff island that you can walk to (it is very shallow there). Beach very easy accessible by public transport, just next to the road.

Main 'tourist ' bit of Praslin. Right by the Berjaya hotel. A broad sweeping beach not the most spectacular on the Island but never the less still pretty.

Silky white sand, crystal clear water with fish swimming round your legs in the shallows and great swimming. Snorkelling best round the rocks at the end - just beware of stingrays hidden in the sand in the shallows. Fair amount of shade available all down the beach, and it's really long which we enjoyed as we like going for a... More

Beautiful stretch of white sand beach. You can find great accommodation and food options around Volbert. It makes a very pleasant and romantic walk at the beach at night.

I reviewed most of Praslin's beaches last year when I was also here, but missed this one. I'm not reviewing the others again, because they haven't changed any! This beach is nicer than some of the reviews make out. The resort behind the beach is a little forbidding (I think I mentioned this last year), but the beach itself is... More
