Most beatiful Seychelles beaches

Selection of the most beautiful beaches in the present islands of Mahé, Praslin and La Digue as seen by Roberto during his trip to the Seychelles Islands.



La Digue - Anse Source d'Argent

Inevitably start with the most famous beach of Seychelles emblem of these islands. Denied its beauty from the combination of colors between the sea, the white sand and rocks. granite with warm tones and balanced lines. The beach overlooking the west coast of La Digue, almost perfect set of natural elements, the white sand, the sea colors ranging from emerald green to turquoise, contained by the presence of tropical vegetation and the many granite boulders in warm colors and the harmonious shapes and rounded. The sea front has shallow (uncovered at low tide) protected by a coral reef that is not far away, the beach is very popular with tourists who start to abandon already mid-afternoon and when the sun is low into the sunset rocks assume a more intense hue towards the red by increasing the allure of this stretch of coastline. From this beach you can then continue (only by sea) to get to other beaches (as beautiful) located further south, easy thing when the tide is low. To access the beach and necessrio cross the nature reserve l'Union Reserve, The'entry is subject to a fee, a daily ticket that allows you to come and go when you want to reserve part of the day.

Praslin - Anse Lazio

Also this Praslin island beach is well known by tourists, it is a deep white sand beach fringed with palm trees and tropical vegetation. The sea front is protected by a coral reef so swimming can be difficult if the sea is rough. The two extreme sides of the beach there are the classic rock formations and here you can do a good snorkeling. This beach has had a severe episode of aggression by sharks, which brought death to tourists. The authorities have now created a barrier against these fish to safeguard tourists. The barrier is only known for the presence of some floating. The beach is in the far north of the island, easy to reach by car is also served by public buses service. His reputation implies the presence of many tourists.

Praslin - Anse Gouvernement

It is a beautiful little known beach and little frequented. The sandy stretch, not very deep, consists of fine sand of coral origin as many other beaches, but its uniqueness lies in the lagoon in front with shallow water, warm and emerald green. Walking in this lagoon is really nice and the presence of a rock formation not far from the shore and easy to get increases its charm. The granite formation has been eroded by the sea over the centuries so that now there are rocks from small / medium size, which in turn create small internal lagoons where the water is clear and calm. The coastal vegetation is, as always, lush and provides shelter from the sun during the hottest hours of the day.

Mahè - Anse à La Mouche

Often the island of Mahé is regarded as the least interesting of the Seychelles but that does not correspond to reality, also has very interesting coves and beaches. L'Anse à la Mouche is one of those bays that I think deserve to be visited, it is a wide inlet which is located in the south-west coast of the island easily accessible by car or by public buses. The long coral sand beach is deep and varies little according to the tides, there are few tourists who are lost on the long beach, much more are the local children have fun in the shallow calm crystal Water management of current-free bay. Here is the chance to make long and relaxing walks.

Praslin - Anse Georgette

This is a very famous beach and fairly popular. It is located on the north end of the island and you can easily reach along the road on the west coast in this area ends. Its uniqueness is the fact that it is located within a luxury resort complete with a golf course, the Lèmuria. To access the resort equindi the beach for free, it is necessary to book because the number of tourists who accept each day is limited and the demands are many, I suggest you book in advance, preferably before starting planning the exact day and sending a request by mail to info@lemuriaresort.com, the resort staff is courteous and responds quickly. Once inside the resort you will have to walk a stretch of the resort and a stretch of the golf course (very nice) until you get to the beach (see map on the right >>).

The beach is hidden and it turns out to tourists after a short stretch of vegetation that closes behind. The beach is beautiful, profound though not very long, it bounded at its sides by grantitiche rocks characteristics of these islands. The sea has the characteristic blue and turquoise colors, but you must be careful because the beach is protected by coral reefs and the sea breaking on the shore with significant waves even in calm weather. Council to arrive early in the morning because the best places (under the palms) are quickly occupied, also the crossing of the golf course (most of the open with ascents and descents) becomes challenging when the sun is high in the sky.


La Digue - Anse Patates

Small beach located on the north end of the island of La Digue in the vicinity of a small resort. Anse Patates for me is a little "gem" in that encloses in a small space that is the best of the Seychelles islands, white sand, palm grove behind rich, crystal clear water of the sea splendid colors, the coral reef that protects it from the open sea , granite rocks on one side, possibility of easy snorkeling near the shore, you want? For all these reasons, the beach is very busy and being small is normally taken by storm and you need to get up early if you want to occupy a favorable place with possibility of using the shadow of palm trees.

Mahè - Anse Bouganville

The beach of Anse Bougainville is located on the southeast coast of the island of Mahe. The coastal road passes on the side of the beach so easy to reach and easy to spot. The reef is not far from the beach and surrounding waters are a beautiful emerald green shading on the blue minimize the presence of algae. Features Included palms that line the beach, many of them are definitely leaned towards the sea allowing it to take advantage of the pleasant shade staying close to the shore even during the hottest times of the day. Nearby is a bar surrounded by tropical greenery.

Praslin - Anse Boudin

The beach is located opposite the island of Curieuse at a small town on the east coast road that leads to the famous Anse Lazio. Perhaps this proximity to the "big sister" means that this beach is overlooked by tourists, very few are those who stop and that's a shame. Although not up to the "big sister" this beach is a long spit of shallow white sand, sometimes wild with vegetation that sometimes looks almost the sea, very beautiful sea of emerald green color with aqueous quiet and shallow , suitable for swimming especially for families and children.

Mahè - Baie Lazare

Wide bay located on the southeast coast of the island of Mahe. A long stretch of white sand stretches along the entire bay and clear water is always calm and warm inviting immediately to dive for a swim. The tropical vegetation, with many palm trees and tropical vegetation that provides ample gray areas, close to the beach which is frequented by few tourists disperse easily given the length of the beach. Also here is the presence of many local children playing with water and with fishing boats anchored near the shore, a suitable environment for those who seek peace and quiet in the great outdoors.

La Digue - Anse Pierrot

Small beach literally stuck in the rocks that line the stretch of the south-west coast of the island of La Digue. The wild appearance and the many coconut trees that stretch to the sea make it very characteristic. The sea front is colored blue and turquoise, the water is shallow and calm, the beach is protected by coral reefs. The rocks to extremes to hide it from view as long as you are not particularly close To reach it you must wait for low tide and drive along the coast starting from the famous Anse Source d'Argent. For this reason there are very few tourists who reach certain and do not even stop, maybe go on to reach the southernmost tip of the island. Be careful when the tide starts to climb, if you linger too might have some difficulties for the return.
