This beach definitely gave me a 'wow' moment. It's small enough to feel private, with beautiful white sand and turquoise sea. However, there is a lot that is very wrong about what Constance Lemuria have done with regards to access to this beach, as well as a neighbouring beach called Petite Anse Kerlan. All beaches in Seychelles belong to the citizens of Seychelles and all tourists should be able to freely access them. However, this hotel is built on privately owned land around the beaches, thereby denying access to the beaches. It's like the rich, autocratic, capitalistic corporate company comes in and grabs the land from the rest of us, so that they can make lots of money from their rich guests, who seem to live in a different world to the rest of Seychelles. It's a world of manicured lawns, golf courses, sterile and empty gardens, imported food, extortionate prices and pampered guests. Just outside the gates, you have the real Seychelles, with real people, with real jobs, real landscape and local food. Granted, the hotel allows access to Anse Georgette, but you have to apply in advance, provide your name and hotel where you are staying. I'm not certain if this means that local Seychellois are unable to access this beach. In summary, it's a sickening and demeaning state of affairs and I for one, will be boycotting the Constance Lemuria group of hotels for their despicable lack of respect for Seychelles and it's people.

It’s undeniably beautiful — the sand is a pristine white and the water is crystal blue. No rocks or coral to navigate. Plus the lush forest that surrounds the entry way gives it a unique backdrop of greenery that makes it all the more picturesque.

It does get a bit crowded due to its fame — I would say the beach is medium-sized and while we were fine with space because I hauled in our portable shade tarp, the shaded areas near the tree line were pretty packed. Getting here is an ordeal if you are not staying at Constance Lemuria — you will need to park at the main gate and make the trek on a walking path has a number of steep hills going both ways. We took the hotel-provided shuttle, but even that only runs every two hours at times, so you really need to plan out how long you want to spend on the beach and what you want to bring.

Biggest call out was that the sea was pretty rough in late April, second only to Grand Anse on La Digue during our trip. There are straight up rip currents (see the birds eye pic I snapped from a helicopter) that are quite powerful, and many people were losing things after being hit by waves. Saw people lose goggles, snorkels, flippers, etc in the 2 hours that we were there. Unfortunately my wife also got nailed by a strong wave and lost her goggles to the sea — the undertow is pretty strong here as well so once an item goes under, it’s gone. Did not see a single person able to recover what they had lost.

It’s a gem of a beach, but with the crowds, the strong currents, and the difficultly of access, it’s not the most relaxing experience.

Anse Georgette is a public beach but can only be reached through Constance Lemuria Hotel after registration. It is a rather long walk from the hotel entrance, but the view of Seychelle’s largest golf court is really nice. Shuttle bus to the beach is available only for hotel guests.
The beach is similar to Anse Lazio, beautiful white sand and huge rocks. It is however calmer, more suitable for families with children. Fresh fruit is available at the beach by the beach boys. No amenities or lifeguard are present.

Anse Georgette is one of the more beautiful beaches on Praslin. That being said, it is also one of the hardest to get to. Located between the road and the beach is the Constance Lemuria Resort. This gated resort limits the number of people that can access the beach. So there are 2 ways to access the beach. Park and walk through the resort or hike from Anse Lazio. If walking through the resort, keep in mind that the number of guest passes is restricted so you will want to request passes well before arriving on the island, through your hotel once you arrive, and also the day of the visit. That being said, the guards themselves are aloof, there is a vague sense of help to get to and from the beach, and there are no facilities at the beach. There is a golf cart shuttle if you luck out and are there at the right time. The beach is stunning, but sometimes the waves can be a little intense. There is plenty of shade so do not worry about not finding a spot. Bring plenty of water and be sure to take your garbage out with you when you leave.

Beautiful beach but the access there is very frustrating. The gate keepers for Constance Lemuria spoke to us as if were doing something wrong and were quite rude and cold. Either give us proper access to the beach or don’t but speaking to us in that manner is totally uncalled for. It’s a long long walk to the beach from the gate (bikes have to be left outside)- at least this is clearly marked. Overall - it’s a real shame that Constance Lemuria control access to a beautiful public beach. The least they can do is be polite about it.

This beach is incredible! To arrive at it, you must make an appointment in advance at Hotel Lemuria. It is not their private beach (the government says that all beaches must be public) but in order to get to it you have to pass through the hotel's property. It is a 20 mins walk through a golf course but it is totally worth it. the beach is wide, the water is clear, there are not so many people on it, you have shade from the trees and I think even when it's high tide there is no problem with the space on the beach.

This beach is very beautiful, has some waves if you like them, but the 20minute walk to the beach was not a flat road. The shuttle van is for hotel residents only. With the tropical heat we felt every uphill. And there is no place to buy water at the beach. Only local tradesmen selling fruit.

So beautiful. You need to book as the numbers they allow on the beach are limited. The walk to the beach isn’t roughly 20 minutes but well worth it. Turquoise crystal clear water and powder fine white s and.

This beach is pure heaven. I've never seen anything like it. In my opinion it's by far the most beautiful beach on Seychelles, only comparable with Anse Marron on La Digue. However, you have to book your visit to the beach a day prior, because it's on private property of Constance Lemuria. It's cca 20min walk through the golf course but totally worth it.
