Beautiful beach!

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

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
