Snorkeling Trail

Area 1: Welcome
Often overlooked, this area lies within the sea grass beds and is vital for the ecosystem. What can you find? Sea Urchins, Pipefish, Sea Stars, Sea Cucumbers and schools of Juvenile Reef Fish.
Area 2: Coral Village
Explore the dramatic and beautiful coral reefs but also witness the fragments of dead corals that illustrate the threat to corals which guarantee the ecosystems health underwater. This area is also important for monitoring of coral resettlement and growth rate as well as to record animals using the niche as an escape from predators.

Wander through the blue open waters and expect to encounter open water fish like Trevally, Barracuda, Eagle Ray Stingray and Lizardfish.
Area 4: Reef Town
Watch the reef elevate from the sandy bottom towards the rocks. Here you will find various types of Coral, Feather Duster Worms, Octopus and Squirrelfish.
Area 5: Fishville
The most untouched and preserved area. The currents can be strong here, so watch out. What can you find? Goatfish, Trevally, Surgeonfish, Butterfly Fish, Cornet Fish, Angel Fish and even Juvenile Reef Sharks.

Coral Reef Restoration Project – Coral Cove

With our continuous effort to enhance our commitment towards preserving the marine ecosystem around the resort, we present you with the Coral Reef Restoration Project named Coral Cove. This second phase of the “Unlock the Sea” program was launched in June 2017 in partnership with Marine Conservation Society Seychelles.

You can now learn more about corals and even adopt one and receive regular update of its growth and GPS coordinates after transplantation on to the reef.
