    Anse Lazio Lodge
    Anse Lazio Lodge at Anse Lazio I and my sister took a week off to travel to Seychelles. Our first stay was at Anse Lazio Lodge,Praslin. I am glad we chose this place. There are so many factors which makes this the perfect place to chill in Praslin 1. Bang on the most beautiful beach 2. Surrounded by greenery 3. You wake up to the sounds of birds chirping and waves crashing on the shore 3. Big room and a clean bathroom 4. It has a big living room just outside the rooms. 5. Breakfast is literally in a restaurant facing the sea 6. The most hospitable and helpful hosts. They are lovely people. The only issue can be food but that can be easily managed if you request the hosts We took taxis arranged by them from the ferry terminal Henry made us our aloo bhaji and it was 10 on 10. The place has positive vibes. We had a wonderful time there

    The very Best beach in Praslin
    This is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The whitest sand and beautiful blue waters and lots of shade makes this my favourite beach on the island. Snorkeling is great on the far left side of the beach after the big rocks. There is free parking for customers who eat atLe Chevalier restaurant and that was very comfortable for us.

    One of the best beaches I've been to!
    A fantastic beach! Great sand with just enough waves to have some fun. Clear water with snorkeling at either end. Insiders note! Go past the pay parking at the beginning of the beach road and drive down the beach to the end of the road. There you can park in a guarded parking lot for 100 SR. With that you get a 100 SR coupon to eat at the Le Chevalier restaurant. They have great food and service. You also get free WIFI and a shower. This greatly extends the comfort of your stay

    Beautiful Anse Lazio
    One of the best beach I have ever seen. Beautiful and calm place to stres relief. Plenty of shaded and sunny places help you to find best holiday time Easy and quick access - by bus line 61 or 62 and cab (quite a bit more expensive, but the walk uphill then goes away — bus costs you 10 SCR only no matter from). If you come in a rental car there is a large paid parking lot down there (100 SCR I think) Entrance is free. There is a snoorking area. There was a fatality with a shark several years ago, but this can happen anywhere. Beware of currents that pull out into the water but still safe. For families with children it is ideal, as it is shallow for a long time The beach itself is divided into several sections separated by rocks. There is something for everyone

    Beautiful Beach.
    Although the sea was VERY rough when we were there, we still enjoyed this beach, lots of cover from the sun. SR100 parking charge if you drive. Great surroundings and plenty of room. Park at the hotel/restaurant right on the beach, you pay your SR100 & get free use of shower and WiFi also the money will also be used towards a meal if you so choose.

    So beautiful
    Very lovely beach however to get there it's bit challenging if you have a kid. I recommend to rent vehicle or taxi as walking up this hill it's crazy tiring. The view on the beach made you feel it's worth it tho. Water very clear, great for snorkeling

    Beach
    I never saw a place like this!! The sea is clean and light blue colored. There is a parking area (7 euros) with a voucher that you could use in some restaurants ( but no for drink). We decided in any case to go in other restaurants, with see view ( the quality of the food in general is low, but not a lot of options there). I advice to go with the private car. From the bus station, the beach is little bit far and with heavy downhill. In any case it is a experience that has to be done.

This was our favourite beach on the island. Crystal clear water, with catamarans parked up in the bay. You can also snorkel between the rocks and see some pretty fish 🐠 No big hotels reserving a section of the beach for sun loungers. Buy fresh coconuts 🥥 from the guys on the beach 30-50sr. There is a restaurant just off the beach but it is currently closed for refurbishment, so bring your own snacks.

Arguably one of the most beautiful beaches in the world means that it is also one of the busiest on the island. Located at the end of the road, there are some parking spaces before the beach, or you can press on to one of the lodges or food establishments. There are plenty of spaces on the beach in the sun and in the shade. As a popular beach, there are warnings about possessions, so all should keep an eye on their stuff. Like any beach, please take your garbage with you when you leave. If you stay on the beach long enough, you will see van full of tourists come and go.

Our driver, dropped us within meters of the beach. It’s as you have imagined, fine white sandy beach, granite boulders, palms hugging the shores, plenty of space to find a shady spot. When we were there, the waves where fairly high and strong, so not ideal for snorkeling, in fact very few bathers snorkeled. There are 1 or 2 unsavory characters, so watch your belongings. I personally found the popularity of this beach over rated. My personal favorite for Seychelles is Carana beach on Mahe.
Across the sand road, where the beach starts, there is a restaurant, see my other review for Le Chevaliers Bay Restaurant.

There is no construction yet around Anse Lazio and when there in November 2021 it had only very few people, so I really enjoyed my stay and swimming at this beautiful beach with easy approach into the crystal clear and quiet water (this time of the year). While lying in the soft, white sand, looking at the granite boulders on both sides of the about 600m long beach and some also sticking out of the sea, I was trying to figure out which beaches I liked best in my life. This was one of them, others that came spontaneously to my mind were Radhanagar Beach on Havelock Island in India's Andamans, Kilwa Masongo Beach in southern Tanzania or Lalomanu beach on Samoa and there are probably plenty more, alone in my second home, Greece.

The car park for Anse Lazio is at the back of the tree line with mostly Takamaka trees. Not many palms can be seen. Behind the beach is also a small pond. When lying on the beach I could observe a sooty tern sitting on the sand.
