Snorkelling at Recif attitude

Is it possible to do some good snorkelling from the beach here ? Also is it possible to walk along beach to get nearer to Victoria and meridian beach areas to swim? We are choosing between the Recif and Le Victoria. Would prefer adults only but want good snorkelling from beach.

Grateful for any advice.

You cant walk along the beach for very as far as I recall and the beach there is rocky. A few years since I stayed though.

Better snorkeling at Victoria but it's very family oriented so probably not what you are looking for.

Hi Linda.I have just returned from the Recif and snorkling is possible if somewhat restricted due to it only being a small lagoon.You can walk up to a large beach including the Victoria by turning right out of the hotel gate and through a small green area onto the beach this then stretches for several kgs but is very nice.There is also a fantastic beach at Troix Aux Biches which is around a 25min walk bit is well worth a visit.
