This was our second visit to La Digue in the last decade.

La Digue (and Seychelles) is hot and humid, so to experience the beaches at their best is to start early morning at or before sunrise (around 6:00 a.m.)

We first visited Union Estate (this opens at 7:00 a.m.) and purchased few fresh fruits and veggies from the shop in the Estate. We also picked up a small pack of Creole Curry masala.

We then visited Anse Source D'Argent : one of the unique beaches worldwide ! The advantage of going so early morning 7:30 a.m. (after visiting Union Estate) was that we were the ONLY people on this beach.

All this was possible only due to our cabbie Mr. Antony (+248 2588136) who was not only punctual, honest but very reasonable in his charges. It is quite crucial to have a good cabbie at your disposal here in La Digue, even though the island is "small", but the heat and humidity can really get you.

The Anse Source d'Argent is absolutely breathtaking. Definitely one of the best beaches I've seen in my life. Go.

(Best way to go is through the Union Estate (115 scr for all day, in/out access). )

However, this isn't a beach I'd recommend for a long day of enjoyment. The sandy area isn't that large and because it's so gorgeous, it's pretty packed. The water is splendid, and its lovely how you can walk far out and fish are literally bumping into your legs. However, the low water level combined with the heavy grass, makes swimming somewhat impractical.

So I recommend the beach because its 100% worth exploring the water and all the rocky outcroppings, but if you want to spend a full day lounging by the water, taking dips when you're hot, etc...there are other beaches I recommend - such as the beach by the old jetty (also accessible from inside Union Estate) or beaches on the north of the island.

Amazing place!
You can arrive there via ferry from Praslin (this is how we went there). We payed 850 rupees for both ways/ 2 persons.
The entry at the natural park (anse sourse d’argent) is around 550 rupees/ 2 persons.
You can rent a bike from where the ferry is stopping and ride until anse sourse as there are around 3 km. The bike rental is 500 rupees per 2 persons.
Usually the situation there is windy around May but the beach is very nice.
Also, there are lots of people on the beach.

Its a must visit if you are on La Digue. It is just so completely different to any beach. The rocks are so beautiful it looks almost fake. It is so wild and untouched, you could almost imagine a dinosaur appearing. We loved our day here and if we had had an extra day or two, would've come back. Worth the entrance fee.Lovely cycle to reach the beach. We were worried it would be overcrowded but were pleasantly surprised. Plenty shade through out the day. We got there early so had a great spot. We set up on the first or 2nd beach, and then later after most of the people left we explored the rest. Many reviews we read said bring aqua shoes but we didn't have any issues where we swam. Also saw loads of fish in the water without snorkel gear. We packed food and drinks for the day, and recommend you do the same, as there is no food for sale and there is only one very overpriced juice bar.

This is the most beautiful and breathtaking beach that I ever saw! Perfect combination of white sand beach, turquoise and clear water, warm Indian Ocean, giant granite rocks, palm trees and other plants, and the most important thing - it is safe for swimming (as everybody told us the beach is protected by the coral reef and other barriers and that’s the reason why you are safe from waves and sharks). You can reach there easily from every side of the island by bike. Before you get there you must pass through nature park and pay entrance fee 100 seychelles rupees per person (approx. 5€ per person). Scenes when you ride through the park are stunning and you can see giant tortoises too.

I hear that it was the best beach in La Digue, but the beach was terrible. It was not possible to swim because of alga and very low water . The surrounding is very beautiful with the different kinds of rocks but this beach is overrated.
The only possibility is to go to the Pier restaurant at the beginning of the beach with very good dishes and drinks.

We had a lot of fun on this beach just relaxing. There is a gate fee for visitors though so just be ready to make that payment if you’re coming in through the entrance. There are some giant tortoises before you get to the beach. The views are incredible and worth the trip

The day we went to Union Estate and Anse Source D'Argent it started raining shortly after our arrival and barely stopped all day. However, we persevered and managed to get some photos of the beach when the rain was not too heavy. One advantage of the rain was that the beaches were empty and the boulders looked fabulous when they were wet. All the surrounding greenery also looked more lush than usual.
A word of warning, as were were leaving early afternoon hoards of cruise passengers arrived in a stream of trucks so it may be worth checking in advance when cruise ships are in or at least get there early.

I do not think that anything can be added here that would detract from this being one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. There are two (2) ways to the beach. First, you can pay to enter via L’Union Estate Farm or the second, you walk around the southern end of the island and exit through L’Union Estate. Either way will give you access to the beach. Those traveling to the beach have a few options for avoiding the crowds. Come early or late, avoid lunch time. If you take your time going through L’Union Estate there are some interesting things to look at. Vanilla trees, tortoise feeding, etc. those traveling around the southern end of the island can only do so at low tide. Anyone visiting the beach should take note of the tide times to ensure that you are there when there is the most beach possible. Take plenty of water with you, and as always, take all of your trash with you when you leave.

To be seen , but go there very early . For 115 rs you can walk in the park and access to the beach . By bike you win some time and can park in dedicated area before anse source d'argent . Take time to see the villa ,giant turtle , old cemetery.
Beach is not wide , some algae ...
