Also known as the Côte d'Or ("Golden Coast"), Anse Volbert earns rave reviews from sun-seekers, swimmers and snorkelers for its sugary white sand and crystal clear water. Although it's one of the island's most popular beaches, Anse Volbert's size (approximately 1½ miles long) means it never feels crowded. "It's not a busy beach but for a good experience, try to go to the right to get away from all the boats," one TripAdvisor user suggested.
Although they admit that Anse Volbert isn't the prettiest of Seychelles' beaches, travelers say that the soft sand and shallow water are ideal conditions for those traveling with children. And the abundance of restaurants and bars close by means you can plan to spend the day there without worrying about going hungry or finding a restroom.
You can reach Anse Volbert by car, bus or bike from Baie Ste. Anne; the port town sits about 2½ miles southeast of the beach. You can visit the shore at any time, free of charge. To learn more, check out the Seychelles Tourism Board's Anse Volbert page.
