Owner description: This popular beach boasts beautiful white sand and clear turquoise water; a sheltered cove is ideal for snorkeling.
Reviewed 25 April 2014

If you end un Praslin and miss visiting Anse Lazio, it will be like you have never been to the Seychelles. The beach is simply amazing. Water is pristine clean, the sand is like powder and the scenery is surreal. Definitely one of the top 10 in the world and I am glad I was lucky to spend a couple of days on it. It simply amazing.

A few tips:

- Two restaurants on site, quite overpriced. You can bring drinks and snacks with you, no vendors on the beach.

- No restrooms, you have to visit the restaurant and pay for it.

- No beach chairs, so bring a towel and eventually something comfortable to lie on.

- USE SUNBLOCK! Trust me, no matter what the weather is, no matter "protected" you feel from the shadow of the trees, do your skin and yourself a favour and apply sunblock often.

- Watch where you like below the palm trees. It is not wise to do so below coconuts. Same applies if you park your car.

The only downside is there is no bathroom or a simple shower to wash the salty water off. This is the real downside.

Clear line of horizon with nothing that cathes eye, beautiful sea, good amenities. Clean beach, free of charge, though take your towels and be informed there's no shower.

Best beach in Seychelles.. a must see.You want to feel it? Just go there!!!
With two restaurants on site you are bound to spend the whole day and enjoy the effects of both the low and the high tides. Snorkelling is a bonus. Try it folks!!

Even if a lot of people goes there, the beach never feels too crowded. The swimming and snorkeling is great.

A nicer place than Anse Lazio is virtually inconceivable. It is ridiculously picturesque, particularly towards the western end, there is plenty of shade and plenty of sand. The water is sufficiently deep for snorkelling some thirty meters out and there is plenty of life below the surface.

There are no obnoxious hotels laying claim to any part of the beach but two restaurants compete for guests. Lazio is slightly inaccessible in that the bus stops a few hundred meters away from the beach, crucially a few hundred meters containing a rather massive hill. This means the only simple way of getting there is by taxi, which in turn will cost you. From Cote d'Or, roughly €40 for a return trip. If you are sharing the taxi, it is easily worth the money, partly just to avoid climbing that hill.
