It is a "Must go" in Praslin!!! It is really nice for swimming and snorkeling!!!! I went by bus. You have to walk for about 1 km after the bus stop.... it is a little bit hard the way to go.... but it will be easy the way down....

We loved the beach it was fantastic. However we did not like to see many giant tortoises kept in a small enclosure. This is not good. Please let them free to wander at will. I feel it was very cruel to have so many in such a small place. In the 21st century we do not want to see animals... More

Really nice bay to stop off over-night at the time of the year. The beach is very nice with a cool "honesty" bar located on the far left of the beach.

The hike is worth it though taking a car would be advisable. There's a beautiful view of the sea, the water is blue and the sand is white. This place is perfect for families and couples. There are no shops around so make sure you bring your own snacks and drinks if needed. There are restaurants around, perfect for lunch... More

One of the best beaches in Seychelles, probably the world. Clear warm water, soft white sand, beautiful surrounds, and large enough to never feel crowded. Not always easy to get to without a vehicle but definitely worth the effort. A must-see on Praslin. Perfect!

This is definitely the most beautiful beach in the whole island. if you are by car, very easy to reach and you can park just metres from the beach itself. There is a bar there where you could buy some drinks and snacks, but opened only early July (till then closed due to low season). Unfortunately a guest house +... More

Anse Lazio is undoubtedly the best beach in Praslin. Eastward Facing it offers argubly the best sunset on the island. The beach is perfect white powdery sand with palm trees providing natural shade along the stretch of the beach. The beach isnt protected by a reef and the water becomes very deep, very quickly. When the tide is coming in... More
