Calm waters and beautiful small beach

You can go to this beach from anse intendance or the other way round. Currents not as strong as Anse Intendance, ok snorkelling, didnot find much of marine life though.

This is a little beach, but good for snorkeling. There is a little buffet where you can buy drinks and some snacks.

We drove all the way down to the beach on a narrow road. It was peaceful, and the beach is absolutely clean, soft white powdery sand, and wow, we have it all to ourselves.

I am always on the look out for the best beaches during my stays on islands. There is nothing one can fault about this beach. Sand is fine and white, water amazing blues, small waves. The only problem is that it is only accessible through the Four Seasons hotel. I was there in January 2017 and the hotel is not... More

This is the beach of the pictures and advertisements! The sand is white and soft , the water is that turquoise blue of dreams and the waves are wonderful. However , there is a mixture of sand and rocks beneath your feet and my son cut open his foot. A large wave can surely bring your head in an unexpected... More

This beach is one of the best Mahe island has to offer - soft sand, slight waves, azure waters!! It is accessible via the Four Seasons Resort and it's definitely one that has to be visited when in Seychelles!

This is one of the best beaches that I have ever seen in my life. The white-sand, the blue clear water. Just amazing. Four Seasons hotel use the beach, but since all the beaches in Seychelles are public just go and see for yourself. Just amazing.
