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

Crystal clear turquoise water, granite boulders and palm trees, plus sand like flour - I can't think of anything else you would want on the beach - better than beaches in Mauritius or Hawaii.

interesting bay, site of the first landing of a french ship in the c18th, there is an anchor and a plaque marking the spot. Not much in the way of shops or activity but a great beach , worth a visit if you have a car

Petite Anse is definitely a stunning beach, but it was the most crowded beach we encountered as it is the beach of the Four Seasons Hotel. The hotel staff are friendly and allow access (as they are required to do). They hand you a nice welcome card that is basically designed to reiterate that you are not allowed to use... More

Perfection....... soft powdery ivory sand..... barricaded by granite boulders, cliffs and lush vegetation on either side.... The various azure shades of the crystal clear Indian Ocean, lapping up on the shore.... The wondrous Four Seasons Resort & Spa on it's doorstep.... yet not imposing in anyway nor taking away from this majestic beach

If you wanna enjoy sand and sea like shown in a postcards you should defenitly visit Petit Anse! The main barrier is that if you don't transport with your own car it is quite loong way to walk from local transport to get there. Also from the reception of Four Seasons Hotel to the beach there is around 15 minutes... More
