Not the most beautiful beach in the world, as it is considered.

It is a nice beach but you can't swim when is low tide (in this period almost the first part of the day).

If you don't want to spend money going to Coco and Felicite Islands, head to Anse Source D'Argent for your chance to snorkel with turtles. Aside from being one of the most glorious scenic beaches on planet earth, we loved the fascinating underwater life! While snorkeling towards the eastern side of the reef we saw at least four turtles and... More

Just as you can see on post cards and not too many tourists. Funny rasta guys at the end of the trail selling wonderful fruit juices and sharing fruit with you. Tip : If you go on low tide (approx 10.30 am), you can enter by the water, and save 10 euro entering fee. Nice walk too. Alternative - bring... More

Remember that it´s not just one long beach but many in all sizes. We were here a couple of times and it never got crowded. Plenty of different small beaches to choose from and almost everyone of the is top of the line. Also bare in mind that the west side beaches (like this one) has a lot of vegetation... More

Be early or depart late. Take sufficient water since it can get hot there. Entry fee required at the gate. Worth the journey as long as you can catch a spot in the shadows of a palm tree.

I was lucky as I was there when it was not at all crowded. Makes sense to come after 3 pm or before 8 am

Very beautiful, massive granite rocks. Be prepared to take lots of pictures. Visit via L'Union park pay 100 Rupees. You can do it yourself, but quite a walk. Do it in the afternoon when tide is in.

The beach is amazing and breathtaking! You have to pay to get into the area, (where you can see the giant tortoises, the vanilla trees and the beach), but it is really worth it! The price is around 100Rp (6-10 Euros). The tortoises' area was not really nice and it wasnt very clean. But the beach is so beautiful and... More
