Coming from Mauritius, it took me a visit to Anse Lazio to realize what a genuinely great beach is. It's nothing like our Mauritian beaches: it is not crowded, not spoilt by vendors and other human activity. The landscape in the background is extraordinary, as are the water temperature and the waves. I'm not much of a beach person but... More

This is the best beach on Praslin. Accessible by bus or a hire car. The bus drops you at the bottom of a steep walk to the beach. But the exercise is well worth while for the beach that awaits.

I'd seen photos but I never thought it will be so beautiful. Long and sandy beach with refreshing waves. Easy to reach and several parking places.

This is one of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen. The water is crystal clear. The beach is great for swimming and sun bathing, with plenty of space, so even though there were lots of people, it wasn't that crowded. It is easily reachable by bus from anywhere on the island, and is a must-see!

This is a nice beach but on the day we visited the waves are high and strong. The first time I ventured in the waves, I did not expect it to be so strong so I got knocked out and rolled back underwater into the shore. The second time, there was a second wave that was too high for me... More

An energetic walk to get here, great sun and sea, and fishes, and a wonderful beach, not crowded, and with palm trees for shade.

The beach is beautiful, clean and with fine water. The waves were a bit rough, but it is related to the time of year. I would revisit whenever I could

We loved our visit to this beach in Praslin. We had visited Praslin only for the afternoon (were staying in Mahe and spent morning on La Digue). Even after a morning on La Digue, Anse Lazio was a highlight. Kids loved the waves and the water. We did not find it crowded (yet it is true you are not all... More

or....see the beach from a boat. the point is to beat the crowds and see the beach in all its glory when there's not many humans around. it's also worth swimming or either climbing the granite boulders to see a smaller beach :)
