Mahe - Saint Anne Marine National Park

Created in the early seventies, the Saint Anne Marine Park has been protected and sculpted to perfection. Just 5km from the shores of Mahe, this watersport paradise has six islands and reefs that capture every shape and size and colour possible. While watersports are certainly on the cards, everything is geared towards protecting the area and the wildlife that call these waters home. Fishing and waterskiing are banned but snorkelling, diving, and kayaking are world class. Coral gardens, turtles, and fish along with over 75 different species of flora make for a fascinating water safari. Dolphins and reef sharks are also regular explorers around these parts. You will find the best snorkel spots at the Saint Anne Channel where visibility is mirror-like and there’s never any shortage of characters to swim alongside.
