Best Seychelles Beaches

Mahé Top Beaches

Seychelle’s beaches helped define the tropical island beach expectation. Sand that’s talc-white and just as soft, coconut palms tall and shady, water that changes from azure to emerald and granite boulders that seem to have tumbled from the sky. The archipelago’s beaches are pulled straight from the pages of a magazine.

We’ve chosen several of our Mahé favourites as well as one or two from other islands to give you a taste for what’s in store. 

Anse Intendance (Mahé) 1km long with the possibility to see turtle hatchings between October and February. It is beautiful, wild and mostly untouched 

Anse à la Mouche (Mahé) Family-friendly and good for swimming with shallow water and a soft quiet beach. It’s one of MAIA’s beach neighbours. 

Anse Royale (Mahé) In the south of the island on the opposite coast to MAIA, Anse Royale is one of the most popular east coast stretches of sand and it’s easy to see why. 

Beau Vallon (Mahé) Is in the north of the island and not far from Victoria. This tourist friendly beach is loved by locals, is close to plenty of amenities and great for sunbathing, snorkeling and motorized and non-motorised water sports. 

Anse Lazio (Praslin) Big leafy takamaka trees, pearly white sand, impressive smooth granite boulders and yachts bobbing in the ocean. Arguably the most beautiful beach in the world. Visit and decide for yourself…

Anse Source D’Argent. (La Digue) Best enjoyed when the tide is low, when the water is shallow and the reef has some good fish spotting opportunities. Giant boulders, white sands, arched palms. This one has it all and then some.
