Resplendent with exotic birds and trees, this crescent-shaped two-mile beach is still pristine.

This is nice beach, but dont look like on the Seychelles. There is a lot of tourists, shops, atractions. We found a lot of more beautiful beaches on Seychelles

Beautiful Beach with clear and shallow Water - perfect for children. You can eat at restaurants overlooking the Beach or just go to the supermarket in the road behind the Beach.

One of our favourite beaches during our trip in seychelles. Beautiful walk during sunsets, perfect spot for bying food from the nearby foodtruck and just go and have a picnic in the sand. One of the few amazing beaches that allows walking distance from area with restaurants and shops. If you are going to praslin in june-july then stay near... More

Tip: Plan to visit beaches between 10 am to 2 pm, to get the real feel of eye catching crystal clear turquoise water otherwise it will be normal water without any charm. Picture speaks louder than words, so please do see photos attached in this review or on Google or in trip advisor reviews for this attraction to experience a... More

Very safe for bad swimmers but one can play with medium waves( we did a bit of jumping). It is a very long stretch of the beach. I personally loved it more than Anse Lazio as that one had very high waves and was hard to get to although was really beautiful. Anse Volbert had a bit of corals but... More

We were diving with Octopus divers (totally reccommend them!!!) So often visited the Beach, but due to lots of sea weed, we only had a swim once, and tried to lie on the Beach one time, but got several sand flies bites. Other than that it's a long streach, but during high tide, there is not much Beach left...

When it's lowtide, the beach is really beautiful, but when flood there is no beach at all. There are some nice shaped palmtrees that makes the view very beautiful. The restaurant at the beach serves good food (especially the chili wrap, YUMMY!!!). During the period we were there, it was some seaweed on the beach which enticed the sand flies.... More
