Petite Anse is one of the most beautiful beaches ever! The best on mahe, if not in Seychelles. Even though the hotel is right there, not a lot of guests are on the beach. The main access is through the entrance of the four Seasons Hotel, and often you are offered a buggy ride down or for the return climb....... More

Located in the Four Seasons Resort you will have a 5-20 minute walk to the beach unless you are lucky to hitch a ride on a hotel buggy. The beach welcomes you with soft sand and calm waters - great for swimming and snorkeling. Almost perfect.

Very good for snorkeling in the morning , you can see many kinds of fishes and the viability is good. Also the beach sands are very smooth like powder.

Situated on the grounds of the Four Seasons resort, access is allowed to external visitors. It is a picture postcard beach, there are no words to describe the colour of the sea.

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.
