We visited here as part of a week long catamaran cruise. The cost of admission was 15 euros which is expensive but worth it as it goes towards the upkeep of the island. The tortoises are incredible and roam free. They have a nursery where...More

This place is one of the must in animal evolution. Nice park that allows the animals to be approached closely; with caution of course as we should disturb at the minimum. Watch out the big spiders on the partly boarded walkway. Nice beach with great...More

You can see giant turles eveywhere in Seychelles, so even if your accomodation recommends it (probably against a commission for the organizers) you will find a better place to snorkel and to spend €65 per person...

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.
