The sought-after beaches on the islands of La Digue, Mahe, and Praslin are at the top of any visitor's wish list. Snorkeling opportunities in Seychelles vary depending on which islands you visit.
Popular Spots for Snorkeling in Seychelles
White sandy beaches, bathed in warm aqua waters, on La Digue and Praslin islands have excellent snorkeling spots as well as glass bottom boats to encounter marine life. On Mahe Island, Anse Royale and Port Launay Marine Park are premier snorkeling spots in Seychelles. Bel Ombre, Anse Diri, and Anse Major are worth making a 2.5-km walk through the Morne Seychellois National Park to enjoy snorkeling and diving. The best place for snorkeling on Praslin Island is Coco Island from Cote d’Or beach. Those looking to enjoy snorkeling in less crowded waters should explore Baie Ternay Marine Reserve and St Pierre in Curieuse Marine Park.
Divers can explore the shallow lagoons of Anse Royale and barrier reefs which are a little further out to sea and granitic seascape all along the coasts. The waters of Anse Royale are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, fishing, and paddle boarding. The best spots for snorkeling are near the rocks at Fairyland, where there are plenty of brightly colored coral fish. At either end of Anse Major beach, the granite rocks and coral reefs offer ample opportunities for snorkeling. The reefs are well preserved and full of marine life.
