The islet looks very picturesque and the snorkelling around it is very good. Perhaps is best combined with Curieuse or Curieuse and Cousin.

We paired this snorkelling trip with a visit to curieuse as well. We saw lots of different fish and more importantly saw a sting ray and a sea turtle! Best place we snorkelled in the seychelles

This is a small little island off the Anse Volbert which you can reach by boat or kayak. By kayak it is difficult to land as there is only a very small beach at low tide

We went there twice. Good snorkeling, better than Coco or Sister island. We also saw eagle ray. If you stay at Cote d’or beach on Praslin, you look directly at it.

We has unfortunately prepared only for a swim so we didn't do any snorkelling but the water around the island have plenty of fish, which are even visible from aboard a boat as the water is quite clear in most places.

St. Pierre is a great place to go snorkeling. It is very picturesque and beautiful! This place is normally combined with Curieuse and/or cousin islands. Recommended to visit it for snorkeling!
