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

This was the only place in the seychelles where we felt a bit uncomfortable - the beach and the area around is used by young men for drinking and drug taking. They do not bother tourists much - other than to try to sell boat rides - BE WARNED DO NOT TAKE THEM! - but it had a slightly threatening feel to it - certainly some locals were not comfortable there. We did not see police at this beach although they were at Lazio and other beaches on Mahe as well. The sea is suited to children/swimming as it has a very shallow slope but do not leave your things unattended.

No beach in Seychells is truly bad, but there was nothing special about Anse Volbert - except probably for all the hotels located around the area.
Very shallow water and nice view on the islands.
But unless you are staying there (cote d'or), it is not worth the detour.

Like we all imagine a beach to be. Palm trees hanging over onto the beach and small islands in the distance! Very romantic and peacefull! Mind the sandflies- be sure to take insect repellent.

One of the best beaches anywhere int he world with shallow waters that are warm. The beach is so long that it is possible to have peace and quiet AND have fun with people... Highly recommended and one of the most wonderful places in the Seychelles, which is one of the best countries in the world.

Very, very fine sand here and milky blue-white waters - simply breathtaking beach. Beach gets narrow at high tide, but great for all ages.
