One of several islands in the bay of Côte d'Or on Praslin, this tiny islet with its granite profile interspersed with coconut palms has come, over the years, to represent the quintessential Seychelles island, appearing in numerous advertisment campaigns, posters and evocative photographs.
Once home to a number of Coco-de-mer that grew naturally on the island, St. Pierre lies approximately 1.5km from Pte. Zanguilles on Praslin's fabulous Côte d'Or beach.
St. Pierre is a firm favourite with swimmers, snorkellers and yachtsmen for whom the island provides the ideal backdrop to a spectacular Seychelles sunset.
