AnseVolbert

It is located on the northeast coast of Praslin. Also known by the name of Côte d’Or aka Golden Coast, the AnseVolbert beaches are thronged by sun-seekers, swimmers, and snorkelers. All thanks to its white sand and crystal clear water, the beach is spread across a long stretch. What else makes spending time at the beach and taking a dip in the water worthwhile is its shallow waters. In fact, AnseVolbert is one of the island’s main resort areas, filled with luxury to affordable hotels and restaurants all lined up along the shores. But not to miss the activity on this beach is going snorkeling.

The thrilling part of spending time on this beach during the weekends is the locals who come out to barbecue on the beach. There are also adventure water sports such as jet skiing, water skiing, banana boats, paddleboarding, boating, fishing, and scuba diving.
