Nice beach. Sea at times can be rough specially during the southern Monsoon. Otherwise it's a nice place to be. Quite far from the shop so better takes your drinks and snacks with you.

It is a little off the main road, but so well worth it. The water is as warm as bath water, and the color of the sea is amazing. Pristine, with not one spec of litter . The Banyan Tree hotel stretches along the beach,...More

This big beach with fine white sand and crystal clear water has two temperaments: rough and dangerous and calm and crystal. It is nonetheless a consistently peaceful beach. You can often spot turtles walking up/down the beach to lay their eggs.

Just loved this stunning beach! There are waves but I had no trouble swimming that particular day. Lots of fruit bats to entertain us on one of the trees... dont miss this beach!

Anse Intendance is a beautiful beach located in the south west of Mahé. In my opinion it’s one of the most picturesque beaches on the island but had strong currents and a lot of rocks which makes it unsafe for swimming. Despite the safety issue...More

Yet another impressive Seychelles beach. Exposed to the ocean, hence best enjoyed during the calm season.

Beautiful beach and my favourite on Mahé. The waves are quite big, which gives your swim there a lot more excitement. Careful the current can be very strong, so don't venture too far away from the shore line. Children should stay in the shallow.

Absolutely beautiful beach, we reached here just in time to watch the sun go down 😍 Definitely worth a visit. Also, there's a souvenir shop close by!

You can access it easily without any problem. Just bear in mind, that there are no beach facilities around (e.g. showers, toilets, food stalls), so you will have to take everything you need with you.

There are no facilities of any kind anywhere near this beach, except for one hotel. You will have to search elsewhere. It is still worth visiting though, because it's beautiful.
