Located about 5 km from the capital city Victoria, Sainte Anne Marine National Park is made up of six small islands. From dazzling turquoise, crystal clear water to stunning biodiversity, there is a lot to explore here. A fantastic snorkelling destination, this picturesque place is rich in its natural beauty and the oldest marine reserve in Seychelles. Its striking beauty makes it a unique place to visit and also makes it stand apart from other islands in Seychelles. This marine park was developed to protect and preserve the biodiversity and wildlife of the Indian Ocean. People come here for snorkelling, glass bottom boat excursions, scuba diving and several other fun activities.
The national park, apart from being extremely beautiful, also has a very vibrant and rich ecosystem. This makes it a perfect destination for snorkelling and scuba – diving. However, water sports and fishing isn't allowed in the park area to avoid the corals and underwater marine life getting disrupted or damaged. Visitors may even get golden chance to swim along with the hawksbill turtles. If that doesn't satisfy you, look at the bottlenose dolphins cruising here. This is truly going to be a lifetime experience.
There are many local tour agencies which offer half day tours to Sainte Anne Marine National Park. These tours include one to three snorkelling points. Most of the tours start from Victoria and cost around EUR 50 per person. In case you want to arrive here on your own, you can take the boat services operated by Cerf Island to Mahe which are available on a regular basis.
