Such a nice easy trail. It took us a bit less than an hour, with stops to take in the view. There are signs all along the way, you know where you are heading to. Wear good shoes as it can get slippery on the rocks, and try to head there early as there’s no shade. Once you reach the beach, enjoy the sea.
There’s a little sort of a restaurant at the beach, serving amazing tuna fish, a must try, better food than in some of the fine dining restaurants we tried on Seychelles!!
And, if you don’t feel like going back on foot, there is a taxi boat that will take you to your starting point.
A really nice morning!

We hiked from Bel Ombre to Anse Major Trail. Took us about 2hours to get there. Trail is easy to hike, although with some climbs up and done. Information about local flora and fauna is to be found along the trail. Very satisfying to reach the beach of anse major.

Snorkeling is fun with plenty of different types of fish.

Tip: bring cash there is a stand where you van eat fish and chicken dishes (not sure about vegetarian). Also there is a water taxi.

Tip 2: dont expect to be alone. But that is fine

10/10!! Hike the nature trail and finish at the Anse Major beach for a refreshing swim in the ocean. Absolutely incredible tuna steak with chilli sauce and fresh coconuts from the local shack. You can take the happiness boat back to Beau vallon if you’re staying there (200 rupee) if you don’t want to hike back. Definitely recommend.

Totally overpriced and not worth it. Note that they charge 150 SRP per person to go on a trail. It is scorching hot, views are average at the most and totally spoiled by the huge black pipes along whole trail. Close to the pay point there is a disgusting man with captivated flying fox, charging fee for the photo of the poor animal. Trail is moderately challenging, make sure you have got sturdy boots. When finally you see the beach, there is a sign that Anse Major is in 50 meters. Then make a decision what you want to do. If you want to go back by the boat (as I desperately wanted), do not proceed further and stay on this beach. If you need a bar, go further but Bev are as there is no trail as such, you need to climb the graniet rocks to get there. Boat arrives every hour on an hour. The beach is one of the least interesting on Mahe- small, fairly choppy, so you can’t properly swim. Boat costs 150SRP per person, so in total we spent 600 with no enjoyment whatsoever

Plan 45min to 1h to reach the beaches. Lovely views of the sea and the oceanic granite rock formations.

The beaches are gorgeous even if one could easily argue there are nice beaches north of Beau Vallon. Swimming is lovely and snorkelling not too bad.

If you are going there with your own car, just do not stop at the bat man’s house who will probably try to get your attention and invite you to use his parking spot. Avoid yourself painful conversations on how high your tip for his help should be! You can easily continue and grab a spot closer to the trail along the road.

This is a very easy hike. The trail is very easy to get to using public transportation, and the hike itself is not particularly strenuous, but a good portion of it is in the sun, so make sure to wear sunscreen and bring water. It is possible to take a water taxi to Beau Vallon beach after completing the trail, but I opted to hike back to the main road.

Great hike with an amazing surprise of the ocean and beach at the end of the hike (out and back trail). It was challenging, but I think that was due to the time of day we went. The heat and humidity made it tough but not unmanageable. Once you hit the beach, you have the option to take the water taxi back if you don't want to make the trek back up the trail. Well maintained trail. Highly recommend!

Pretty hike, took about 1 hour each way. We went about 1.5 hours before sunset. Great spot to catch the sunset but walking back is difficult in the dark. Luckily it only started to get dark just as we were finishing but would recommend a head torch.

Limited parking, we parked by a supermarket. There is a boat bringing people back but it seemed to stop about 5ish.

Starts on a hill, but it’s not a tough hike. Lots of different terrain. Absolutely stunning!!

Three KM hike to remote beach in lush jungle. Beautiful photo opportunities along the hike to the beach. Very large waves and strong current were fun to play in, with only a few people on beach. Bring plenty of water, hike is long and hot. No water or other services currently at beach due to covid. Car parking at trail head.
