One of the worlds most beautiful beaches

This beach certainly helps the Seychelles live up to their well merited reputation. Spectacular transparency of water with lush tropical backdrop.

Due to low tide impossible to swim until noon. As for schnorkellin our hotel - new emearal cove is unbeatable! Overall it was beauiful but... More

We took a half-hour ferry ride to La Digue Island from Praslin. Then we drove to L’Union Estate before touring the copra kiln, traditional coconut oil mill, and colonial plantation house. We saw the famous Seychelles tortoises munching on grasses in an enclosure. Then we swam at Anne Source d’Argent, a beach with white sand and granite boulders, considered to... More

we have visited 9 islands and this was our favorite beach in the Seychelles. yes, it does get quite crowded in the afternoon, but when not get there at 6am and stay until noon? then come back around 3pm when most of the crowds are gone.... it does make sense to overnight on the island because of this though, if...

The beach with white sand combined with the granite rocks is really something very particular, so no wonder it is one of the world top rated beaches. Unfortunately this Comes with a Price: it is extremely crowded, you feel like a Marathon is Happening...not really the experience you expect in a Tropical paradise. For me there are better beaches on... More

Amazing beach, 1st for National Geographic, do not miss it!! You have a lot of small ones, diving was not so good in my opinion, at least I did not see anything.

It really belongs to the best beaches in the world. The scenery was awesome. You have to go through the gate and pay the entrance fee but it is worth it. On the way you will see vanilla plantation, big turtoise or how the coco oil is pressed. Unfortunately there was a big tide during the day, the water was... More

Heard a lot about this beach, really was a lovely place, warm water, fish swimming in the shallows, lovely fine sand. Thought it would be packed, but plenty of room, so easy to find some privacy.
