I like this beach the most on the whole mahe island. there is a small restaurant next to the stairs leading to the beach and guest of the restaurant can park their car few steps from the beach, so it is worth buying a beer or two (or even a fish) and enjoy this wonderful place :)

Probably the best beach in Mahe. Its located in the Four Seasons Resort. If you're not a guest its quite a walk down to the beach. However it is open to everyone and well worth the visit.

The beach at the Four Seasons is magnificent, beaches in Seychelles are public, but this one, bc it is hard to access, there are mostly only hotel guests.

Very beautiful beach!!! You can not reach it by car, you have to walk for 10 min but it's definately worth it. One of the best beach at Mahe.

Very nice beach. We didn't eat at the café, even though we wanted, because we were greeted in a very unfriendly manner.

Probably the second best beach in Mahe after Anse Intendance. Very convenient beach when the sea is rough - you can always go for a swim in there since it is protected by the coral reef. Access, however, it is not very convenient since you have to go through the Four Seasons resort and it is quite a long walk... More

This beach is inside the Four Seasons resort, so park up at the entrance and walk to the beach. Lovely setting, crystal clear water etc

An absolutely stunning beach set in a beautiful bay surrounded by cliffs and the Seychelles typical granite boulders. The colour of the water was out of this world as too was the Four Seasons service and facilities. As the title states, simply one of the best beaches in the world.

The most beautiful beach of the island by far (and probably one of the top in the world). You have a parking at the entrance of the four season, then a 10-15 walk through the resort to reach this beautiful beach. Water is clear and light blue, on the left side of the beach you have a nice snorkeling spot... More
