As others have said, this is probably our favourite beach on Mahe. That said, you need to be aware of the lack of shade in the afternoon. You also need to note the strong currents and big waves. The waves can be fun provided you are careful, but on occasions they are not for the feint-hearted. These are not rolling waves ideal for surfing or body-boarding; they are waves that rise and then break on you followed by a significant undertow. Like I said; fun but be careful. There is a small beachside shack selling fruit, juices and a couple of other items of food. However the timing of the guy being there is very hit and miss. Otherwise you have the nearby Banyan Tree Hotel, but we ever strayed into there. A police patrol warns you of the potential for theft from bags, but this is higher if you go to the left when you get onto the beach. Instead turn right and go along towards the hotel, where it is regarded as much less likely. The beach itself isn't signposted (which is not altogether uncommon on Mahe). Instead you will see a sign for the Banyan Tree Hotel. Follow that and the track will end up taking you down to the beach. There is space to park your car there.

This beach is very dangerous for swimming, undertow is so strong, it knocks you over. Baie Lazar much safer. Also lots of theft here. A policeman was patrolling the beach warning everyone.

Really pretty beach, lush green foliage, a few boulders on the sides. There was limited shade in the afternoon. Follow directions to the Banyan tree it is just a few minutes from this beach (and you can get a great meal with a view there). Instead of turning right to go to the hotel keep going straight for a couple of minutes. There is a parking lot on left, follow the trail from the parking lot to the beach. there is no coral in the water like on the East side of the island so easy to walk into water. We got mosquito bites walking from the wooded car park to the beach at about 1 pm in February. The sand is soft, there it a food hut there.

Great waves, not crowded, nice bar (banyan tree) at your disposal, my favourite in Mahe. Easy parking close to the beach
