|Joining a guided excursion from Praslin, after about 30 minutes
of sailing, I arrive to Sister Island, a private owned island featured by
nice beaches and a rich marine life.
|Photos of Sister island. Big fishes can be found in large numbers also
very close to the beach.
|The crystalline water lets to clearly see them through the surface.|
|It isn't necessary to be expert swimmers to enjoy snorkeling on this island. Big, colorful fishes can be found also where the water isn't deeper than one meter.|
|Other colorful fishes can be found in abundance everywhere.|
|Suddenly, I see a turtle swimming in low waters, few meters from me.|
|Sister Island is also interesting for its beautiful,
idyllic beaches of pure white sand. Unfortunately the overcast sky doesn't
let to appreciate the beautiful colors in the above and right picture.
|Tall palms grow close to walls of granitic rocks.|
|The tour continues with a one hour snorkeling near Coco island, a rocky unhabitated island.|
|Here at Coco island, is like to swim inside an aquarius, with hundred of colorful fishes. Unfortunately the deeper water, with limited light, doesn't let my disposable camera (without flash) to work properly.|
