Take bus 21 to the end station at Danzil. Walk about 1 km to a sign showing the patch to the left. The distance shown here is 1.5 km but is surely at least another 0.5 km. Very nice view from the path which runs...More

Yet another wonderful Seychelles beach. This one is quite hard to get to, you have to put some effort in if you are land based. It's a very quiet beach, with only a small number of people making the trek from Beau Vallon. We were...More
