Snorkel Vibrant Reefs with Turtles and Exotic Fish

While many of the world’s reefs have been bleached out and over-fished. The Seychelles offers pristine coral and abundant marine life like colourful fish and rays, easily reached right from the sand, or by boat. Have you ever wanted to snorkel or swim alongside sea turtles? You can do just that throughout the islands. Watching them glide through the water or feasting on seagrass often without another soul around. Anze Lazio on Praslin Island is a top pick for many, a blindingly white sand beach bordered by calm, clear water. Follow the rock line to the left of the beach facing the sea. There’s a good chance that you’ll encounter a friendly “resident turtle,” who seems to enjoy the company of humans, swimming right alongside them.
