“Pristine fine white sand, calm turquoise water”
Reviewed May 7, 2014

Lovely to swim, fairly shallow for a long way out. Safe for children. Nothing to see for snorkelling.

“Beautifull Beach”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Private, calm, beautifull and close to beautifull points to dive. We took some spectacular photos with almost no one trying to sell you something.

“What Anse Volbert doesn't have”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

On the face of it, Anse Volbert has everything you look for: it is spacious, there are deck chairs, there is shade, swimming is good, restaurants are close, etc. Yet there is something here missing and as strange as it may sound it is nothing less than the typical large boulders. There is simply some sort of intimacy that is lost without these large friendly rocks close by. Other than that, it is a remarkably nice beach, even though the coral reef outside is mostly dead.

“Lovely place in April”
Reviewed April 12, 2014

I have been told that beaches vary greatly in the Seychelles depending on what time of year it is. We visited in April and had a lovely time on this beach. The sand if fine and soft, the water was calm and clear. Cafe's near the beach were much cheaper than at some of the more famous beaches and we weren't constantly warned about theft being a problem. I believe that in the fall, this is the windy side of the island and the sea might not be so calm, but there would still be a lovely view of the smaller islands. We were glad we chose this as our base in the Seychelles.

“Average Beach”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

It is an average beach compared to other Praslin beaches. The sand is soft. It is a very long beach thus you can enjoy a long walk. There are few restaurants near it which serve decent food.
