The Seychelles archipelago consists of 115 islands that are known for their magnificent beaches. The development and conservation go side by side here with only a few exceptions. This is precisely the reason that hawksbill turtles feel safe to come ashore in broad daylight to lay their eggs.
Tourists love to flock here to enjoy on the pristine beaches. All-inclusive resorts like Beaches Turks and Caicos give you a chance to have a lot of fun. If you don’t like resorts, you can opt for the homely vacation rentals, which are ideal for people who wish for a home-like atmosphere.
Anse Source d’Argent
Though all islands are spectacular, few of the beaches here stand apart and you should definitely have them on your itinerary. The Azure Sea here is surrounded by massive granite boulders. This beach is listed as the 4th best in world’s 100 best beaches by CNN.
This extremely beautiful beach comes among the lonely planet list of idyllic beaches of Seychelles. There is a craggy volcanic cliff on one side and the perfect arc of the Azure warm sea on the other. The sand is so fine and smooth that you would hardly feel it. It lies to the east of La Digue Island. It is the perfect place for some soul searching amidst nature.
Anse Lazio is long and broad and is located northwest of Praslin, which is Seychelles’ second most inhabited island. It is also the most photographed beach with dreamy blue sea and velvety sand. Once you are here, you would feel like you are in your own heaven.
Anse Georgette is also located in Praslin but to its western side. It is a very quiet and nice place and ideal for couples. The beach is accessible only by boat and hence slightly secluded and couples love to have their privacy there in serene and beautiful surroundings.
This beach is on the main island Mahe and is tagged as the most unspoilt beach on it. You will find it on the southern coast of Mahe and it stretches across nearly 30 Kilometers. The surfers love this beach as there are large and strong waves here. However, it is not recommended for someone who just wants to have a dip.
Anse Major deserves the number one position when it comes to the best beaches in Seychelles. It extends up to Morne Seychellois Reserve in the northwest of main island Mahe. To reach this beach, you either need to take a boat or you can take the nature trail hike. The hike is no doubt a little long and exhausting, but the coastal views are simply gorgeous. All efforts are worth to catch a glimpse of this enchanted place on the planet.
When in Seychelles, enjoy the mesmerizing beauty that nature has bestowed upon this island nation by visiting these pristine beaches.
