Not much busy, clean water, no strong current, safe and with all natural beauty. What else we want. During our visit in June12 we had rented a car from the hotel and visited on my own so was able to spent the quality time there with family. Must visit place.

It is located at the west coast of Mahe. One has to pass through Four Seasons Resort to reach the beach. It is a 15 minutes walk from the gate but you can get a lift from passing club cars. Its better to use club cars as its a very tiring walk . The beach is a Paradise. Crystal clear... More

The access to Petite Anse is through the Four Seasons Resort, although it is a public beach. For security reason you got to park outside the property and identify yourself. It is about 10 to 15 min walk but a tip is to ask for a lift provided by the resort free of charge, but you gotta ask for it... More

Best snorkelling on island alongside Port Launay and Baie Ternay. Shame you have to work your way through the Four Seasons hotel to visit but well worth the effort....

The beach is beautiful and clean. There are great spots underneath the trees if you want to avoid the sun. There is offbeach snorkeling but not as good as in Maldives or Hawaii.

This beach is beautiful, we loved it. The sand is soft, the beach is clean and not at all crowded and very safe. The waters look calm and inviting. We will treasure the memories from here for a long time. If in Mahe, plan to visit the West coast and get to this beach.

Its a long walk down the hill through the four seasons to get to the beach but its worth it. Such a amazing beach, clear blue water, soft white sand and hardly anyone on the beach. We visited many of the beaches on the island and this is bay far the best.

We stayed at the Four Seasons Resort so were lucky enough to wake up to the view of Petite Anse and make use of it to the max. The beach is the most beautiful we've seen on the island. The colors are spectacular and the sand is pure white. It is so clean and well kept by Four Seasons. The... More
