Visited a few years ago now but still recall the stunning scenery and beautiful location and people, visited the island via boat and behind Garcia and the Maldives this is the best scenery I have had the good fortune to see.

Probably one of the most beautiful beaches on Mahé. To dangerous to Swim during Summertime, but still a visit worth!

One of Mahe's most stunning beaches ...... breathtaking view!!! Mother Nature play's it's hand.... all that beauty -- yet the currents and waves (seasonal) are not to be scoffed at!!

Anse Intendance is simply stunning. It felt like a lost world with lush jungle, dramatic mountains and boulders, and a beautiful white sand beach. Having done my research, I knew there would be waves on this side of the island at this time of year, and yes, there is a sign warning at the entrance about strong currents from June... More

Anse Intendance is definitely the best beach in Mahe. The rocks and powerful waves blended extremely well with the soft white sand and crystal clear waters. The only negative part of this beach is that the waves are too strong and not advisable for swimming.

Its a while since we were on Anse Intendance but this review will not have changed over time. This is a great beach but watch the under currents in the sea. Great fun to be picked up by the powerful waves and rolled back onto the beach!

It's simply a breathtaking beach … beautiful waves that wash upon the shore, and great snorkeling spots at the left side (beautiful corals) and just in front of the main building of the Banyan Tree hotel (rock formations). Beware of the waves and the currents however, dangerous with little children !

What a fabulous beach and setting--it must be one of the top spots in the Seychelles. Fine sand and crashing waves.

Perhaps the most beautiful beach I have ever visited, powdery soft sand and crystal clear waters. The waves weren't too rough when I was there and I didn't want to get out of the lovely warm water. The beach is very clean and I like that on Mahé all beaches are public. There is a car park and I agree... More
