We were at this beach this morning. The beach is beautiful, with wide, smooth sandy beaches. We were the only ones there until about 11AM. The waves were big, so we didn't go into the water. Also, the red flags were out along the beach. Plenty of free parking & shade to relax. Bring your own refreshments.

One of the most beautiful spots on Mahe to watch the sunset. There is no bar our toilet here so come prepared. The sea has strong currents for part of the year as well as big waves. We were there in March and the sea was managable, although I wouldn't recomemend it for small children. Stunning water clarity, powder white... More

The second most beautiful beach on Mahe Island. This is not good for families with young children as the water gets deep very quickly and waves are also really big. There is no restroom, bar, shop, restaurant.

This is THE most beautiful beach of Mahe Island. Sand is perfectly white here and when you come to the beach from the road, you cross a real rain forest :) Turtles have nests here so you must take care of them. Unfortunately no bars or restrooms nearby, but this makes this place very silent. Between June and September, waves... More

Picture perfect beach, with large waves and beautiful waters. The only problem is that the water is rough and has strong currents. Some brave souls would venture into the water but they were taking a risk by doing so as the current and waves are even strong close to shore.

This beautiful beach with amazing turquoise water is right next to the Four Seasons Resort, even though you can still access it without staying there. The beach is a spectacle, with a great view of the sunset and beautiful color water, which is just different than any other beach we saw on Mahe island. The waves here weren't rough, which... More

We stayed at the Banyan Tree, and an early morning walk along the beach is fantastic. As is having breakfast and dinner overlooking this wonderful location.

Such a wonderful beach: the colour of the sea the softness of the sand and the colours are amazing...however there are so many other beaches that have the same characteristics in Seychelles that I found very strange that this one is the number 1 attraction of the island!!!
