Resplendent with exotic birds and trees, this crescent-shaped two-mile beach is still pristine.

Took the local bus to this paradise beach. Restaurants and bars close by but still not disturbing the peace and quiet. A place to love!

The south end of the beach where the Côte d'Or beach joines Anse Gouvenment is beautiful, with warm shallow water. Snorkelling is reasonable but the shallows and sand can make the water less clear. We saw many rays in the water close to the offshore rocky outcrop that is in shallow water. One warning - do not take any valuables... More

This beach is about 3 km long, the sand is incrediblly fine and white. Unbelievable, but we did not encounter any garbage at all, and no shells. It all looked like a hologram on the StarTrek Voyager...

Our hotel on Praslin was located just across the street from the Anse Volbert so we spent the first day there - it is a nice, long beach, with perfect water to go for a swim. But after seeing the beaches on La Digue (Anse Source d'Argent, Grand Anse, Petit Anse & Anse Cocos - with the Seychelles-typical stone formations... More

This is nice beach, but dont look like on the Seychelles. There is a lot of tourists, shops, atractions. We found a lot of more beautiful beaches on Seychelles

Beautiful Beach with clear and shallow Water - perfect for children. You can eat at restaurants overlooking the Beach or just go to the supermarket in the road behind the Beach.

One of our favourite beaches during our trip in seychelles. Beautiful walk during sunsets, perfect spot for bying food from the nearby foodtruck and just go and have a picnic in the sand. One of the few amazing beaches that allows walking distance from area with restaurants and shops. If you are going to praslin in june-july then stay near... More

Tip: Plan to visit beaches between 10 am to 2 pm, to get the real feel of eye catching crystal clear turquoise water otherwise it will be normal water without any charm. Picture speaks louder than words, so please do see photos attached in this review or on Google or in trip advisor reviews for this attraction to experience a... More
