Just about every visitor to the Seychelles and the Island of La Digue will have heard about Anse Source d'Argent. It is often mentioned either as the world's best beach or on a top ten list of the world's best beaches. To me, Anse Source...More

This beach is big, but has no shade. Swimming was a bit scary - strong current, but there were some nice waves. A nice little beach shack with friendly staff serves ice cold drinks and beers and some food (the old restaurant burnt down). The...More

The Grand Anse is where the middle island road ends, just after the restaurant where you can leave your bikes. The beach is very big and wide with very few shade. It's open to the ocean, so there are huge and very powerful waves followed...More

Tourist tend to keep in the Source D’Argent area and this big beach is by far wilder with currents and fairly empty. Not the most picturesque beach but nevertheless worth the visit

Went from north of the island and took us about 25 minutes to get there. With quit a hill but it way worth it. Excellent waves to eno od, no rocks, great fun. But carefully, you have to be a good swimmer.

If you want to visit a place where it's extremely relaxed then La Digue is probably for you. Predominant form of transport - bicycles! A great way to get around this beautiful island in less than a day. Go to Loutier Coco at Grand Anse...More

I was disappointed because you cannot even swimming in the sea. Wave is bid, maybe 2 meters high. Definitely not for children or non pro swimmer. Even pro, be very careful. Very few shade, strong wind. This is real sea, real ocean but you can...More

Absolutely stunning beach, perfect sand, warm water... literally paradise. My only suggestion is bring your own shade. Hat, umbrella, whatever! The sun cover is very limited there mid-day and that sun is warm!

Visited on our first afternoon. Approximately 40 minutes bike ride from jetty. Plenty of places to leave your bike with local bar adjacent, then short stroll to beach. Dramatic views and wonderful setting. Very strong currents so not suitable for bathing/snorkelling

This beach is easily reached by bicycle (the normal mode of transport on La Digue). It is beautiful, but with a very strong current that should not be ignored. Not much shade.

Bit distance from the jetty . but ..beautiful hidden beach there and many more . if you need to go to the other hidden beaches, you'll have to take the trails and you will be amazed.

Huge beach, nice and clean. Great spot to spend a half of the day. Some vendors onsite. Highly recommended.

Hello guys, I am planning my honeymoon in Seychelles for 8 days with my wife in early December, 2017. I want to do snorkelling, SCUBA diving, nature hike and beach relaxation on my vacation. There are 6 main attractions which I wish want to visit to take beautiful photographs. Anse Source D'Argent, Anse Grande Soeur, Anse Lazio, Anse Georgette (including Morne Blanc mountain hike) and Mahe Island for Morne Blanc climbing and a visit to Victoria market. Could anyone please guide me how should I plan my trip to get the best out of my honeymoon. Where to stay to see all these exotic beaches and how to make to and fro excursions easy and comfortable. We may change our stay on every 2-3 days for the other places (May be 2-3 days for Praslin, La Digue and Mahe Island each). Which tour company to use for Island hoping? We have the budget of about 1500 USD for this trip of 8 days. Truly appreciate your suggestions and grateful for the time provided by you guys to help me plan this out. Best wishes…
