The first things you see are the giant boulders, really really impressive. The beach is great even if at low tide there's not much water to swim but there's always enough to cool off.

The combination of giant granite boulders tumbling into the turquoise coloured sea, fine white powdery beaches, palm tress and lush vegetation covering the surrounding granite hills makes the perfect setting. The beach stretches quite a way and makes an interesting walk through various boulder formations and beach settings. The water is waist deep as it is surrounded by a reef... More

Long Haul through a run down Plantation with some 15 to 20 poor tortoises crammed into a little enclosure . That was gross after seeing them free on Bird Island. Just a zoo not a natural experience Pay 100 Rupees each for the privilege of entering the plantation. Rumours are that the place is to be redeveloped.. another big hotel??... More

Very nice looking beach,but totally unsuitable for the main purpose of a beach according to my demands,swimming.When you have to go for a walk in the water to get more than your ancles wet,I feel it is something wrong.But,once again,very nice for pictures.

Of course that visit to plantation, giant turtles and this beach is a MUST when on La Digue. Beach is really something - a comment (a joke) I've read about Henry Moore and his contribution to arrange rocks on the beach made sense once I've seen this spectacular scene! Definitely not to be avoided but I was disappointed, maybe because... More

Just so beautiful, you really need to see it. The sea is so clear, there were lots of fish swimming around and we didn't even have snorkels on to see them. Would love to go back.

Beach person or not, you will happily spend an entire day just basking in the beauty of this beach. Walk as far as you can around the rocks, find your private piece o paradise, and just be

Unique location on this planet, the way to the beach you will pass a vanilla plantation and a garden with giant tortoises.

Well the beach is quite picturesque with lots of rocks and ideal for photo shoot. However if you are looking to enjoy the beach and for snorkeling I would recommend Anse grande!

I read so many reviews describing it as a real Paradise on earth but when we went there it did not lived up to my expectations. No doubt it is a beautiful beach with lots of rocks and clear waters but there are better beaches in La Digue. We went on day trip so we didn't waste much time here.... More
