Seychelles is famous for its picturesque beaches and natural beauty. With over a hundred islands to explore, it may seem difficult to find the perfect place to relax and enjoy the island life. In case you’re in the midst planning your itinerary, we wanted to make the beach days easy for you. Here’s our top 5 beaches for you to explore and bring to the top of your list:


Anse Source d'Argent, La Digue Island

Anse Source d’Argent is a beautiful beach with clear waters and warm sand. Being one of the most photographed beaches in the world, this beach is a perfect place to sit down and relax and enjoy the sun. This beach is personally our favorite, there’s just something special here. It’s about a mile south of La Digue’s ferry port, which makes it easily accessible by foot or bike. Anse Source d’Argent is complimented by huge boulders and dozens of palm trees that make the stay even more pleasant.



Anse Lazio, Praslin Island

Anse Lazio is one of the most famous beaches on Praslin. It is surrounded by trees and rocks to make it feel like a hidden getaway, it’s a perfect spot for sunbathing and swimming due to its shallow waters, and it is a great place to go snorkeling. You will find a sense of relaxation on this beach, whether it's taking a nice walk on the soft sand or falling asleep to the sounds of the waves shore. Another great thing to do is sit back and watch the sunset here with a picnic, you won’t regret it!



Petite Anse, Mahé Island

Petite Anse is a peaceful bay that is located at the Four Seasons Resort on Mahe. It is a beautiful beach that is curved along the island with clear waters, green vegetation, and white sands. This is also a great beach to go snorkeling and admire all of the colorful fish. This area is accessible by foot over a small hill which shows visitors the beauty of nature in Seychelles. The hotel also offers food and drinks to visitors who want to make their stay even more worthwhile. 




Anse Georgette, Praslin Island

Anse Georgette is one of the most beautiful beaches on Praslin, but it is also one of the most difficult to get to. Located at the Constance Lémuria Resort, it’s a quiet place for visitors to relax without the noise of people. The reason why it is so difficult to get to is the resort only lets 30 non visitors to the hotel enter at a time making this beach even more special, so make sure to get there early if you want to experience this!


Anse Intendance, Mahé Island

Anse Intendance stretches about half a mile on the southern coast of Mahe. This beach is very popular and geared towards crowds who like to have fun. The powerful waves make it an ideal place for surfing and boogie boarding. There are also big granite boulders that children love to play on. You can reach Anse Intendance by bus from Victoria which is about 20 miles away. We highly recommend this if you want some fun beach day energy.


Beau Vallon 

Beau Vallon is the most popular beach in Seychelles. It is perfect for diving and snorkeling due to its clear waters and it also has many hotels, restaurants, and shops since it is situated in a lively part of the island. This is also a perfect beach to bring your family to because there aren't any strong currents or sharp bits of coral that are dangerous. It is easily accessible by car, taxi, bus, foot, or bike, and is very fun and beautiful. This beach offers both a relaxing and fun time which is very unique compared to other beaches. One more thing that makes this beach special is Bazaar labrin, a market which takes place every Wednesday at this beach. It is a must-do when visiting Seychelles! Great place to mingle with the locals and try some seychellois cuisine. 



Whether you are looking for a peaceful place for some relaxation or a fun day full of surfing, you’ve definitely got some solid options all over Seychelles. Each beach offers crystal clear waters, soft sands, and clear air to make you feel like you are visiting paradise every single time. We can guarantee, once your trip is over, the bouldering beaches will never leave your mind.
