I am always on the look out for the best beaches during my stays on islands. There is nothing one can fault about this beach. Sand is fine and white, water amazing blues, small waves. The only problem is that it is only accessible through the Four Seasons hotel. I was there in January 2017 and the hotel is not... More

This is the beach of the pictures and advertisements! The sand is white and soft , the water is that turquoise blue of dreams and the waves are wonderful. However , there is a mixture of sand and rocks beneath your feet and my son cut open his foot. A large wave can surely bring your head in an unexpected... More

This beach is one of the best Mahe island has to offer - soft sand, slight waves, azure waters!! It is accessible via the Four Seasons Resort and it's definitely one that has to be visited when in Seychelles!

This is one of the best beaches that I have ever seen in my life. The white-sand, the blue clear water. Just amazing. Four Seasons hotel use the beach, but since all the beaches in Seychelles are public just go and see for yourself. Just amazing.

The beach is in a beautiful cove surrounded by Four Season villas/hotel rooms overlooking the beach. Unfortunately we visited the beach when it was breezy so the sea was a bit choppy and there was an undercurrent. I however preferred other beaches on Mahe Island where it was safer for the kids to swim!!

OMG! The most gorgeous beach we have ever seen, and we have been traveling quite a lot.. :) definitely worth to the walk from FourSeason hotel gate (where you should park your car) down (and then back up) to the beach. Make sure you have your towels and refreshment, otherwise expect to be charged FourSeason prices...

The waves are very strong here for rookie swimmers. Ideal for surfers! But yeah this beach cannot be left unvisited.

We have been to this beach on numerous occasions over a 25 year timespan when originally you had to be in the know & it took a half an hour trek though a jungle pathway to reach this idilic spot... Even since the Four Seasons hotel complex has been hilt around this cove it still remains an absolute must visit.

In a driving tour around Mahe', a visitor has to be impressed with the stunningly beautiful beaches. Each one is more beautiful than the next. The best part is that they are virtually deserted. With powdery sand and crystal clear water it is a treat for the eyes and feet.
