We almost didn't go, but were soooo glad we went in the end! The beach is beautiful but pretty busy. However, once you start snorkeling, there isn't many people anymore and loads to see underwater. On our second outing, we were even lucky enough to swim with a turtle - it was amazing. From our different snorkeling outings in Seychelles,... More

Although this beach is a bit isolated it is well worth the effort to get here....you can get the 62/63 bus but a steep 20 minute walk from the bus stop.....when you get there it will take your breath away.....white talcum powder sand, blue warm sea......if you go to Praslin you cannot miss this......there are two (a bit pricey restaurants)...

One of the best beaches in Seychelles. Reaching there is little tedious job but you will love this beach after reaching there. Ask locals they will guide you how to reach the beach.

It is one of the most beautiful beaches in the country, may be this is the reason it is almost always very crowded. There are other good beaches as well not very far from this one which are lesser known and hence lesser visited

We visited Anse Lazio twice during our stay on Praslin, once mid morning when it was very busy with lots of visitors so we decided to go back early the next morning, we arrived at 6am and the Beach was deserted, it was beautiful and deserted just lots of boats moored off shore in front of the beach for us...

There's no reef, so no snorkelling to be done, but the waves kept us entertained. No reef equals no urchins or stone fish and therefore we had fun being tossed around by the waves and walking on the softest, finest white sand beach I've ever encountered. The water is beautifully clear and would serve as a lovely couples or family... More

beautiful beach. Try to get there early before the crowds arrive. It will never be crowded like Bondi beach but earlier the better. A beautiful beach

If you go by bus there is a short sharp climb to get there but once there the beach is great. Good for families and the surf is a little bigger than elsewhere on the island to make for a good swim . Snorkeling is also good and a resturant on the beach for cold drinks or lunch.
