I 've been to other tropical places around the planet and I can not really explain why, but Beau Vallon was the best sunset I've seen/experienced sofar. I was not really looking for it, the sunset just made itself aware to me... watching the sun go down and the changing colors of the sky.... this picture will stay with me for a long long time.

This is not a lagoon beach as we may think but real beach with huge waves and beautiful sand. DO not hesitate to rent Body board to have fun. Thirsty, go to the guys selling you fresh coconut to brink and buy some delicious fruit. Hungry, go to the various group of local people grilling for you fresh fish ! This is a MUST, we did not lunch in any restaurant and a-only eat grilled fish during 1 week. This beach is one of the most beautiful of Mahe.

These positive reviews of BV should be segregated into Beach versus Resort/restaurants. BV is where tourist services are concentrated, and where package tour groups stay, and it is quite scenic. But the beach itself, while looking nice to those coming from Europe or Dubai where the standard of beach is rather low, is towards the bottom of beach quality on Mahe let alone when compared to the World class beaches on Praslin and La Digue.

The West facing exposure does make for nice sunsets, but Sunset Beach just a few kms North is a much better beach both for swimming and for sunsets. Much cleaner, way less crowded, no vendors or agents for various businesses to name just a few reasons that BV aint all that.

Beau Vallon is a long public beach with numerous resorts and restaurants/pubs lining the part behind the super comfortable sandy section.
And frankly, after our experience there we don't find the statement "the beach where you can allegedly swim every day of the year" wrong.

Now, we had all kinds of weather from nice and sunny to literally pouring down with rain and in our opinion, you can indeed go for a swim, even if it is raining wildly, because at least it is not chilly windy. We heard from people who were over near Victoria that they had a terribly windy storm, whereas wind we never had - luckily. So perhaps our assumption may be wrong, but it indeed did feel like that even on the 'worst' days you could enjoy Beau Vallon.

Then again, we didn't really go to other beaches in the Seychelles, but Beau Vallon with pure sand (also upon entering the sea) was more than enough for us - during this trip.

I don't like to say "it's paradise", because nothing ever is. But this beach is very, but very beautiful. We were concerned with all the talk about algae, wind, but what we got were 5 days of perfect blue skies and turquoise blue sea. From what I read this is one of the most commercialised beaches in Mahe, which is laughable. There are a handful of guys selling coconuts, and nothing else.
Complete relaxation, with a nice mix of tourists and locals, specially in the weekends.

I have been living there last year and worked for a DMC. I would say this is one the best beaches and there are food stalls if you crave for some Seychelles way seafood. even during the strong waves there were no problem in this area and you can hit the beach anytime you want.
Amazing sunset views <3

In short I can say the "Paradise is on Earth :) planing to go back once the CORVID situation is back to normal

get early to get a sitting spot, might get crowded compared to other beaches. waves get higher than other beaches, so not advisable to leave kids unattended who can't swim properly.
better to go to a fine restaurant with beachfront for breakfast - lunch - dinner and ask for beach chairs and nice spot.

Do not go here in case you look for a calm beach. Then you are better placed in the southwest of Mahe. But in case you want to get the vibe of the locals, then you should spend the week-end here. It is quite a change compared to La Digue, but this is what the Seychelles are. You feel the people, exchange with them, laugh with them, get a feeling about real paradise.
The beach itself is probably the safest beach in the world, no great snorkeling, perfect sand, lots of bars and music. It is where life happens. Generally our last days on Mahe before returning to Europe.

Long sandy strip, in difference to most of the beaches with open plan to the sea. Not that picturesque in terms of rocks and greenery, but still nice. A little setback is that it tends to be crowded and probably due to that or because of missing maintenance it looks dirty at times. Another distinction here is the plentiful bars and restaurants around.
