We liked this beach so much that we decided to get married there! Yes, there is an entrance fee of 100 scr (5,5 euro) but the path to the beach is well maintained and the scenery with big granite stones, jungle and coconut trees is spectacular. But a smoothie and a fruit platter from one of the two stands, they... More

This place is absolutely stunning! We went with a Mason's tour, so the entrance fee was included in our tour fee. The beach is beautiful and the tide was so low, visitors were walking far out into the ocean with sea water just at their mid calf. We didn't venture into the water because we were with the tour and... More

One of the best beach in the world. Very nice services as stall and fruit cafè. Also a shop of real souvenir in the Trait Union park, before arriving to the beach. The beach is famous for marriages and you can sure see one passing there!

As with most people we cycled to the estate that contains the beach. It cost about £5 each to enter the estate, probably OK if you want to sit on the beach all day, but a bit steep for a flying visit. The estate is interesting, with a giant turtle enclosure on the way to the beach. The beach itself... More

There are morr beaches around and all very beaitiful.Also you can see colorful fishes in the water. I definetly reccomand visiting this amazing beach.

We've been to La Digue twice and this beach, as with all the beaches on this delightful little island, is terrific. Lovely, soft white sand; warm, lapping water and fish that come in really close and swim around your feet. By La Digue standards, this is the busiest beach - if you want a beach that's quiet, go to the... More

Going there is a bit like going to the Louvre,Paris in the middle of August a Sunday when you queue 3h hours because it is packed with tourist and you have to pay! The place has been over sold for years by travel guides and brochures but it is not worth the trip at all and you cannot even swim... More

And its beauty is unearthly. La Digue is a friendly, slow, contented place. Try to get to this lovely beach by bicycle or bull cart and really enjoy the island. I cannot recommend any La Digue hotels, because we were on a sailboat, but the visit remains priceless in memories, and Anse Source d'Argent (bay of the silver source), is... More

I have on many occasion visited La Digue and it's out of this world remote beach: Anse Source d'Argent. Today I went back early morning and found that the unspoiled beach is finally turning it's page as one of nature's best preserve beaches. The first thing you see when you enter the site are 2 plastic bins just in the... More
