Praslin’s main beach, with its many hotels and guesthouses lining the golden coastline is rarely crowded. Anse Volbert / Côte d'Or is a dazzlingly white stretch of beach and the crystal clear sea here is excellent for swimming and water sports. Further out in the bay, around Chauve Souris island and St Pierre islet, the snorkelling is superb.
Côte d'Or Beach / Anse Volbert lies approximately 4 km from the jetty. From the Baie Ste. Anne jetty, turn right and drive to the north towards Côte d'Or. Passing Barclays Bank on your left, continue on the main road until you pass Acajou hotel and the beginning of Côte D'Or. Arriving at the junction at MCB Seychelles bank, take the road to the right. Côte d'Or continues as far as the Paradise Sun hotel.
