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 view to see the Raffles Hotel.

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...

It is a nice island, but not special and very touristic. Many touroperators have bbq’s at the island as part of their trip. (It looked like a prison camp, seeing hundreds of people having lunch at long wooden tables and banks under the trees. A guided tour informs you about the turtle nursery, coco-de-mer palms and the mangrove. A good easy 1,7km path leads you to the other side of the island, passing forest and mangroves. We visited this island as part of a catamaran tour (with bbq lunch on board, which I recommend).
