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!

We found the beach sand to be extremely soft, one of the softest on the Seychelles. Unfortunately, the beach had no natural shade whatsoever, so we were unable to stay for long. Sunglasses are a must as the glare was quite strong too. There are...More

I planned to explore Intendance and Takamaka beach together since it was in the same driving area. The beach was deserted. You can reach by bus as well but having a car makes it 10 times easier to reach and enjoy. Deserted beach, yes. Amazing...More

The most beautiful crystal clear waters anywhere. Warm. Slight current and a little choppy but fantastic. Also a turtle egg laying beach. Down in the south of the island of Mahe. Can be accessed by public transport relatively easily but a hire car would make...More

A great spot to get away from the crowds. Its away from the main road so either need to hire a car, go with a tour guide or walk 15-20mins from the nearest bus stop. Long stretch of beautiful sandy beach but be careful as...More

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.
