This is arguably the most beautiful beach I have ever been to, and I have seen many ! Beautiful granite boulders create private seating areas, and there are many trees for shade. The sand is white and clean. The entire beach area is impeccably clean, as is the water. I was there once in low and once in high tide.... More

We took a day trip to la Digue where we hired bikes and cycled through the estate to get to the beach. The beach is a very unique place but because of this is it also crowded so isn't the place to go to get away from it all.

It is considered as one of the nicest beaches in the world and it is indeed very nice and has a white clean sand. It has very light waves since it is located on a relatively long continental shelf so the waves break far away from the beach. So it is very nice. Now, the swim opportunity depends on the... More

This is the most beautiful beach on La Digue! As a photographer I could spend a week on this beach – see my attached images and you understand what I am talking about! The water is crystal clear. The landscape in the background is extraordinary. A must visit! Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.

So even though the day we went the weather was pretty terrible - intermittent rain and grey skies, this beach is still absolutely stunning. You must go! We went as part of the Creole "Two Island" tour, so the fee was inclusive.

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!
