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

One of the biggest beaches in Praslin but not too touristy as the part which has sunbeds is less crowded. Amazing scenery. A couple of bars/restos also for drinks and lunches.

We visited Anse Volbert in the evening before sunset and the water was shallow for swimming. One side had seaweed, but we walked towards the side that did not have seaweeds. Not one of the best beaches in Praslin, but one of the best for swimming. Rest of the beaches had strong waves which made it difficult to get in.... More

we spent 9 days on the beach: water is clear, sand is magnificent and no seaweed with low tide. The only matter was repereseted by sendflies, a lot in the last three days that bitted us to death: itchy bites we still complain about. Sandflies are present the whole day, not only at sunset, there is nothing you can do... More

I went to all the beaches on the island. This one is the best. May not have the best photo ops for rocks etc. but is about 2km long and beaufiul. Can't beat that.

Anse Volbert is a wonderful beach, with an amazing colour and waves. It is safe for swimming and relaxation but not for snorkelling. Actually we've met some stingrays... The beach is affected by seaweed during December..

We stopped on this beach during a boat cruise. The beach is beautiful and worth the visit. Warm shallow water for swimming and snorkeling.

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...
