This is kind of like Constance Lemuria’s house beach. Unlike neighboring Anse Kerlan, Anse Petit Kerlan is relatively calm and very swimmable. It’s not very large, but the vast majority of non-hotel guests visit Anse Georgette, so it never feels crowded and perhaps ironically has a bit more of an exclusive vibe. There are also an ample number of lounge chairs and beach-side drink service, which makes this a very relaxing beach to just have a lazy afternoon at. If you get hungry, the Nest restaurant is right there as well.

The beach does see a fair amount of ocean traffic in that boats will come right up to the beach to load/unload hotel guests on charters, so if you want a more peaceful swim you should go away from the rocks near The Nest. Due to this traffic the water visibility here isn’t that great, but it still is a beautiful beach and the sunsets in particular are stunning. We also saw a spotted eagle ray swimming right up to the coastline from the restaurant one day — pretty cool.

It’s neither the most ruggedly beautiful nor tranquil beach in the Seychelles, but it is very easy to access (if you’re a hotel guest) and the beachside area is attractively manicured. Beautiful people on daybeds doing beautiful people things. Great spot to relax.

It's a nice beach, with a bar nearby, but it is so wrong what Constance Lemuria hotel is doing to restrict access to this beach.
They might own the surrounding land, but they cannot restrict access to the beach as all the beaches in Seychelles have public access.
You have to phone ahead and ask for permission to visit the beach, and the hotel has been known to reject requests in the past, on the grounds of the beach being too busy. They are not allowed to do this and I hope that the authorities in Seychelles will do something about this autocratic, capitalist hotel which is practising a form of colonisation in an independent nation. As a tourist, I am more than a little annoyed at this corporate take over.

We got up early every morning to walk the empty beach - paradise! But even during the day there are not many people and good rest on it. Full relax. Great! I would like to go back there!

All the beaches on the western side of Praslin, Seychelles have soft white sands, usually with demarcation rocks at their sides and the waters are clear and warm and safe for swimming

But one of the few places where you see that global warming is also hitting the Seychelles paradise beaches. Huge problem with erosion. Big project by EU to protect the land.

This beach is in the 'Constance Lemuria' grounds. But it is a public beach, open to everyone (need to get by the hotel's security guard and high gates though.) So pretty with 'The Nest' restaurant at one end and gorgeous pink boulders at the other. Lovely wee beach bar right beside the sand 'Takamaka' which is a delight. Again white sands and blue,blue water.

Wonderful sandy beach, tho a tad crowded. Saw Rays in the water, absolutely fantastic. Wonderful beach bar for barefoot lunches and can arrange evening special dinners.
