Anse Lazio, Praslin
Anse Lazio, also known as Chevalier Bay, is considered to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the Seychelles. It is located on the northern coast of Praslin Island. The beach can only be reached by climbing down a steep slope, but believe us when we say that the journey is well worth it.
This extensive length of powdery blonde sand is bordered on each side by rounded granite rocks, and it combines with seas that are very pure with a variety of ethereal blues. The beach is bordered by takamaka trees and coconut palms, which provide shady areas where visitors may kick back and relax. Additionally, there are restaurants located at both the northern and southern ends of the beach.
When most of the tour buses have already departed for the day, the ideal time to go to Anse Lazio is either early in the morning or late in the afternoon.
Anse Intendance, Mahé
This tiny and quiet crescent of sand on the island of Mahé’s south coast is a famous surfing site because to its regular huge swells and wild waves. It is considered to be one of the greatest beaches on Mahé. This lovely beach may not have a reef for snorkeling, but there are plenty of other things to keep you entertained and happy while you’re here.
Although it is stunning and filled with things to do, this beach is not the ideal option for families. When the trade winds come from the southeast, as they do often from June through September, the absence of a protective reef might make swimming a bit more challenging.
Having said that, beachgoers, sunbathers, and photographers will find this palm-fringed stretch of sand to be attractive and enjoyable throughout the year. A word of advice from the locals: turtles nest along the powdery sands here, so keep your eyes vigilant and cautious where you walk.
Baie Lazare is a charming town located on the island of Mahé. It was named after the French explorer Lazare Picault, who arrived there in the 18th century after being dispatched by the French government to investigate the islands.
The neo-Gothic Baie Lazare Church, which is dedicated to Saint Francis of Assisi and has a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside, is one of the most popular places for tourists to visit in the region.
The magnificent beaches of Anse Soleil and Petite Anse are two of the greatest beaches in the Seychelles, thanks to the spectacular turquoise ocean and brilliant white sand that can be found at each of these locations. Due to the fact that it is sheltered by a bay and has sand with a silvery sheen, Petite Anse is considered to be the nicest beach in all of the Seychelles.
La Digue, which is the fourth biggest island in the archipelago, is a paradise for anyone who like being outside. Bicycles and oxcarts are common forms of transportation on the island, making this a fantastic destination for anybody interested in catching a glimpse of traditional island life.
Anse Source D’Argent is widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful lengths of sand and water, and it is surrounded by some of the most breathtaking beaches and granite rock formations that can be found anywhere on the globe. You will be required to pay a fee in order to get access to the beach at the neighboring L’Union Estate. However, the price of entrance will provide you access to a tour of a historic copra factory as well as a vanilla plantation.
Another place of interest to visit is the Veuve Nature Reserve, which is home to the threatened species black paradise flycatcher. This bird is also known as “the widow” because to the flowing black feathers on the end of its tail.
Hikers will appreciate the La Pass to Grand Anse Trail, which winds through French colonial residences, through forests and marsh regions, and finally ends at the beautiful Grand Anse beach. Other popular activities on the island include diving and rock climbing.
