Description:

Anse Volbert, also known as Praslin’s very own Cote d’Or, is probably the most popular beach on the island, and certainly the longest. It is so long, in fact, that it passes by many different accommodations, ensuring that there is a steady stream of visitors on the beach, especially in front of these various establishments. Access is likely to be simple for the majority of visitors, most of whom will be staying in one of the accommodations that lie on the beach itself. However, for those who are coming from further afield, it is possible to reach Anse Volbert by car, bus, or even boat. There are parking spaces all over the adjacent road, and the bus also stops along this coastal route, ensuring easy-access for all. Please beware - while there are no restrictions in place regarding access to the beach, certain sections contain sun loungers etc. which are intended for the guests of certain hotels, so please avoid using the equipment of a hotel unless you are a guest there or have obtained prior permission. As you can expect, with such a large beach comes a huge variety of different activities that visitors can enjoy. Besides swimming or snorkelling in the shallow, safe water, guests can enjoy surfing, windsurfing, scuba diving, fishing, and sailing, with plenty of rentals and excursions available. Please note: some vendors will approach you to offer boat tours and excursions, but be sure to only use those with an official license, for your security. Anse Volbert has plenty of restaurants and shops to suit visitors of all ages. This is one of the rare beaches in the Seychelles that is equally well-suited to families and couples, with safe, shallow water for children, and plenty of space for couples to find a quiet spot to sunbathe or enjoy each others’ company under the shade of a palm tree. Undoubtedly the most popular beach on Praslin, the Cote d’Or will likely be your first stop if you decide to spend part of your Seychelles holiday on this fantastic island. Thankfully, it won’t disappoint, with an incredible variety of different attractions along with beautiful scenery, there are an incredible number of reasons to recommend Anse Volbert to any Seychelles holidaymaker.
