This is one of the most beautiful beaches we have seen in our life. Perhaps, the best. What we moslty recommed is to go there early in the morning to walk as far as possible with the low tide, so that you can see also other beautiful beaches southern to Anse source d'Argent.

To get to this beach, you have to pay an entrance fee, as it is privately owned. This didn't stop my husband and I to get to this beach. This beach is beautiful with the rocks, waters and sand all come together as a whole to an amazing breathtaking view. To the locals and many others, this beach is voted... More

Beautiful view, but also very crowded. It was a disappointment and we prefered Grand Anse on the south of La Digue.

We cycled the short distance from our guest house and spent the day on the beach, its unfortunate that you have to pay to access the beach through L'Union estate which when visited on a sunday was all closed up. The beach was busy at times but the snorkeling was a amazing and the scenery was breathtaking.

We were staying at Constance Ephelia and did a daytrip to La Digue. Anse Source d'Argent was one of the most beautiful beaches i have ever been. We spend a lovely hour or two here, swimming in the sea and enjoying the scenery. I also had my first experience to drink the coconut milk out of the coconut here. Would... More

Very Beautiful, but very crowded - either go first thing in the morning when its quiet and shady or last thing in the afternoon when crowds drop and the sun is not so strong - Unmissable beach though

Worth to visit and walk to the end of the path. Nice small, hidden bays, but the water was a bit dissapointed for us: weedy and not as clear as on Anse Lazio, Praslin.

Magnificent beach with lots of little coves but very busy with day-trippers. If staying on La Digue get there early and choose a small cove for your spot.

Shallow water, very scenic. Not much to see for snorkelling. Anse Severe better for this. We rated Anse Lazio on Praslin better especially as the snorkelling there was great.

take the bike and go through the wonderful vanilla plantation in la Digue; you'll reach la Source d'argent after a pleasent stroll and you will finally dive in a natural pool with granite rocks: fabolous!
