“The closest and most known beach at La Digue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The rocks and the beach is stunning. Could be crowded. Best for snorkelling. A small beach restaurant is located here. You'll have to pay an admittance fee (100 SR/p) to get in here

“Pretty beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

It is quite a pretty beach with the huge boulders and many little coves where you can find a private shady spot. The sea is however not good for swimming and even at low tide it is too shallow for snorkeling. Also very crowded, but still beautiful.

You have to go through the L'Union estate to get to the beach. We found L'Union very interesting and spent quite a bit of time exploring the estate.

“overrated”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

I expected this to be the best beach in the world. it was small and the sea was rough so it didn't look anything special, maybe when the sea is calm it looks better. We went at the end of May, when the wind starts picking up.

“so beautiful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2012

This beach is amazingly beautiful but make sure you go at low tide. At high tide there is hardly any beach left. I went snorkeling and saw 4 turltles in one afternoon!
