Just mesmerizing!! You have to cycle about 2-2.5km from the jetty to reach this beautiful beach on south east coast. Powdery white sand, rocks and turquoise blue waters make it a perfect beach. Waves were really big reaching like 2m in height. Not suitable for swimming just enjoying the splashes! There was a restaurant at the beach.

We visited the island on a day trip. This place stole a piece of our hearts... and so did Grand Anse. The beach is beautiful and even has some decent waves.

Usually tour operators include La Digue as a days trip or at max 1 night stay. However, if you want to do justice with the island and with your trip, do stay for two nights! Its worth it!

This was our favorite beach on La Digue. On our last visit we missed this but it is well worth the cycle up and down hills to get there. The seas are rough and there is little to no shade when sunbathing so go prepared.

This beach is stunning. Turquoise water. Clear. White sandy beach. The current is abit strong with and with a slight undercurrent so I did not find it very suitable for swimming.Hence the 4 star rating...definitely worth going to visit...

Yes this beach is spectacular and you don't have to go walk far to get to it! However there is no shade... A bonus if you want to work on your suntan but we didn't. There's one tree where people were huddled around to get some shade.

We had a beach wedding on this beach. Organized by Wilfried. Perfect beach for wedding and for swimming in April. Worth the bike ride

But even though I say "more people" it never comes up as crowded or anything. Very beautiful beach with the most beautiful waves. When we where there there where a party going on (local football tournament) which made our visit even more exciting.
