Beautiful beach and my favourite on Mahé. The waves are quite big, which gives your swim there a lot more excitement. Careful the current can be very strong, so don't venture too far away from the shore line. Children should stay in the shallow.

Absolutely beautiful beach, we reached here just in time to watch the sun go down 😍 Definitely worth a visit. Also, there's a souvenir shop close by!

Large and not crowded beach. White sand, very blue sea and typical granite boulders. Amazing place to take pictures. When we visited sea was quite rough, not good for swimming.

It's a beautiful beach. We couldn't swim because the water was very rough. August is probably not a good time to go there if you plan to swim. There were hardly 6-7 people on the beach. Good place to chill!

You can access it easily without any problem. Just bear in mind, that there are no beach facilities around (e.g. showers, toilets, food stalls), so you will have to take everything you need with you.

There are no facilities of any kind anywhere near this beach, except for one hotel. You will have to search elsewhere. It is still worth visiting though, because it's beautiful.
