“Pristine”
Reviewed February 2, 2014

Undoubtedly the best beach on Mahe island, this beach is a bit far from the Beau Vallon, which is the most happening beach in Mahe. A short drive from the highway will take you to the beach whats known as the world 4th best. The beach is a beauty with its immaculate white sand and silent ambience. Take some time out to relax here or go for a swim. Mind the currents though, can be dangerous.

“Slightly disappointed”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

We heard this was the 4th best beach in the world and frankly when we reached here we were very disappointed. The beach is strictly alright. Its a short drive from the main highway, and among the better beaches on Mahe.

“Waves keep rolling like you have never experienced....”
Reviewed January 24, 2014

This is such a beautiful beach and typically quiet because those waves can be so dangerous with the tow and undercurrent. Do visit but stay close to shore and enjoy...

“Fantastic beach”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

For me on of the most beautiful beaches on the world. Behind the strong waves swimming is good, on the left side snorkeling is interesting. Be aware if the waves, they can be dangerous, but i like them anyway :-) In the morning normally the sea is more quiet (in dec/jan afaik), it's the best time for snorkeling. In the afternoon the view is a bit turbid due to churning sand.
