We had few drinks and nibbles with us but the restaurant there serves great creole food too. It is a must to visit this beach if... More

The water is so clear you can see your toes. Lovely place for snorkeling (go to the rocks on either side of the beach to see corals with fish swimming around). Compared with Anse Source D'Argent, it is far better!! Also better than Cote D'Or beach, also on Praslin beach. Highly recommended.

This might be the most beautiful beach in the world. If you are on Praslin, you must visit this beach. Take the (only) road in Praslin to its terminus, park your car, and walk a short distance to this beach. Bring a camera. We were here at sunset. The beach features perfect sand, clear turquoise water, and the shoreline granite... More

At the dead end of a narrowing road you will revel in the treasure of this beach. Its iconic reputation proceeds it. It is breathtaking in its natural beauty. Please go early...the four of us had this stunning treasure to ourselves to feast on its natural beauty, to frolic in its turquoise waters and to celebrate the joy of being... More

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice beach, but you'll find that every beach in the Seychelles is nice so there's no particular reason to choose this one. In fact, if you drive there from Cote D'or, around 3/4 minutes before you arrive, you'll pass a small reggae bar which says 'best snorkel' site. We stopped there after Lazio and... More

beautiful beach photoshop-like view (!) but a litte bit crowded compared to the other beaches, probably due to a big concentration of hotels in area.

I was afraid it would be too crowded, since it so popular, but we were surprised by how empty it was despite Easter holidays. It is indeed a lovely beach and plenty of little shady places, especially in the mornings. But honestly I have seen many nicer beaches, so I dont really think it is in the world's top ten...
