Of all the beaches to visit on Mahe, this one definitely ranks at the top. Located on the South of the island, it is a bit of a drive from the popular North. You need to take the right turn following the Banyan Tree Hotel...More

Nice beach. Sea at times can be rough specially during the southern Monsoon. Otherwise it's a nice place to be. Quite far from the shop so better takes your drinks and snacks with you.

It is a little off the main road, but so well worth it. The water is as warm as bath water, and the color of the sea is amazing. Pristine, with not one spec of litter . The Banyan Tree hotel stretches along the beach,...More

This big beach with fine white sand and crystal clear water has two temperaments: rough and dangerous and calm and crystal. It is nonetheless a consistently peaceful beach. You can often spot turtles walking up/down the beach to lay their eggs.

You can access it easily without any problem. Just bear in mind, that there are no beach facilities around (e.g. showers, toilets, food stalls), so you will have to take everything you need with you.

There are no facilities of any kind anywhere near this beach, except for one hotel. You will have to search elsewhere. It is still worth visiting though, because it's beautiful.
