Covered with tropical forests, Grande Soeur has total area 0,8 km2 (0,3 ml2), coastline approx 5 km (3 ml) and highest elevation point 113 m (371 ft). During the 20th century, there was a little coconut plantation on it.

Big Sister Island is privately owned, purchased in 2005 by Chateau de Feuilles Hotel (Praslin Island). It is often visited by hotel's guests, and mainly for scuba diving and snorkelling. After the purchase, a helipad (helicopter landing platform) was built, as well as several villas for overnight stays.

As the Seychelles are blessed with a year-round warm, tropical climate, it is always a good time for snorkeling, diving and swimming. The water temperature often reaches 27 C and the visibility is 30+ m (100+ ft). Located a few minutes walk from the hotel is the white-sand beach Anse Marie-Louise.
