We travel absolutely all over and the beach on curieuse is definitively worth the short boat ride. It is also better to see the turtles there than on other touristy islands. The walk is easy. Would not recommend the buffet, too much like a package...More

Wonderful experience with my operator, despite the levy entrance fee a bit pricy. The guide is damn helpful and so informative. Highly recommend to spend time with the giant tortoises simply love them!!!

The sanctuary is thoughtfully created giving these great beasts lots of freedom contrary to other private confines on other islands.

The marine parks in the Seychelles can sometimes feel somewhat overpriced (and they are certainly quick to elicit the fee), but Curieuse certainly doesn’t fit into this category (unless you've overpaid a travel operator). A visit to this island is good value for money as...More

I highly recommend to stay on the nice beaches on Praslin rather than go to an OVERCROWDED touristic attraction. Seeing giant turtles in captivity in DEFICIENT and INAPPROPRIATE environment for their "reproduction" is not worth a visit. Tourist operators offer half day packages which includes...More

We went with a rubber boat to the island, therefore we landed just at the beginning of the sand. A bit of wet feet. Not really difficult other than to jump out of the rubber boat with the help of the other people.
