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

I was in La Digue and went 3 times in Anse Source D'Argent. Yes you need to pay the entrance to the plantation but is only 100 rupies/person and is worthed. 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

The beach is something very particular. Beautiful, different, clear water, nice sandy beach and many small sections where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery. A most see

We enjoyed our time at Source d'Argent exploring and wading through the shallows. However, I would not select this beach for swimming or a longer day. There is a fee to get in the National Park and other things to explore, including some giant tortoise pens. I can see why this is considered famous and it is truly picturesque. However,... More

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
