Ste Anne Marine Park
Saint Anne Marine Park was created to preserve wildlife in 1973. The smell of cinnamon wafts through the air here because of the presence of cinnamon plants. The park also has an abundance of coconut palms, including Coco de Mer, the laugh-inducing coconut shaped like a bottom which is endemic to the Seychelles. You will be astounded by the diverse and beautiful ecosystem of Saint Anne Marine Park. Fall asleep to the soft sound of gentle waves, surrounded by luscious flora and fauna.
Tourists from all over the world visit Saint Anne each year to experience some of the best snorkelling opportunities available. Swim beside bottlenose dolphins, stingrays, green sea turtles and so much more. All motorised boats or jet skis as well as fishing or the removal of any corals or shells are strictly prohibited in the park in order to protect the marine life in the park.
