Beach is stunning, definitely catch a sunset here at least once while you're on La Digue. The bars close at 5pm to grab a coconut mojito before then, and also water boots are great as it can get quite rocky in the water.

I've been there in the beginning of March 2015. Really can't understand why it's so popular and famous. It's pretty at a first glance but a already a bit dirty and the water itself is full of rocks. You should be very careful when you step into the water. I had to use my aquashoes. I don't know what but... More

On my humble opinion the expectations on this beach are too hight. The day we went there it was full of seaweeds. Moreover the beach was quite dirty. I would much more recommend the beaches of the north of La Digue. Much much better than this one and are for free.

Third time on La Digue but first time here and very pleasantly surprised how nice it is. This is the most popular beach here and easy to see why as it has something for everyone. Swimming in the deep pools in the coral in lovely warm water or snorkelling around with the fishes or just lazing on the beautiful white... More

I was there in December 2014, which is low season due to the rains. The beach is a bit small, but there were only 5 other people there. It was quiet and peaceful, the rock formations are beautiful and I did some nice snorkeling during high tide.

This beach is "hyped" extensively, but we arrived when the tide was about 1/2 way out and were seriously disappointed. There is a tidal creek which had spread tea-coloured water right along the beach front, making the water an unattractive brown and ruining the appeal. The beach sand is white, but there was a fair bit of seaweed in the... More

I rate it "terrible" in the hope my tidal advice will get attention. "Beautiful" because the combination of boulders, sand and water is truly a natural wonder. "Disappointing" because it was low tide, so low we couldn't even swim let alone do the snorkeling for which we had arranged an expensive private day trip to La Digue from Praslin. I... More

wonderfully long beach with nooks and secluded beach areas between the rocks. This being the period of chinese new year and many tourists visiting Seychelles, we always managed to find secluded nooks and protected beaches to enjoy feeling alone on the island

Fantabulous small beach with a difference! Both mesmerizing and magical so long as you avoid the packs of tourists visiting the place for the day!! Go there after 5 pm and the place is all yours! You'll feel like Robinson Crusoe at heart. Don't hesitate to walk along the other beaches further south to taste a fresh coconut in the... More
