Each beach has its own features and characteristics that set it apart from the other. In short, you must go to the different beaches here in Seychelles to gain different coast experiences while having paying for a price of one flight. You donít have to go to Caribbean beaches or beaches in other places which would cost you so much. The beaches in Seychelles already have it all.


Seychelles BeachesOne of the most popular beaches in Seychelles is the Anse Lazio. Anse Lazio is located in the Praslin Island. This beach is also the most famous spot for tourists. Why? Anse Lazio is the perfect epitome of what you call beach paradise. The sand is color white and the grains are perfectly fine. It is just like walking in a carpet with a different texture. It is located in the north-west area of Seychelles. That is why this is the perfect spot to watch the sunset bursting out different colors just like the ones you usually in abstract paintings. You will love to chill under the shade of the huge coconut trees where most locals get fresh coconut juice as well.

Another amazing beach here in Seychelles is the Beau Vallon.
It can be found in the Northern Mahe of the archipelago. The color of the sand in Beau Vallon is also white. However, it is not as white or as soft compared to the sands of Anse Lazio. Nevertheless, you will still spend some good time frolicking in the clear waters of Beau Vallon. Although this beach is not as visited as Anse Lazio, there are still a lot of restaurants, cafes and alike where you can eat pizza, drink coffee, or anything while enjoying the wonderful sceneries. However, it is not advisable to go to Beacu Vallon during November until April, when the northwest monsoon starts to create powerful waves because of the strong current. You will see that most of the sand is taken by the waves from coast of Beau Vallon and it can be very dangerous to swim in the waters of this beach during this time.

And last but definitely not the least is the Anse Source Dí Argent beach. The Anse Source Dí Argent is said to be the most photographed beach in the whole world. Unlike the first two beaches, the sand color is very unique because it is in pink. Moreover, the grains of the sand vary from large to medium but certainly it still feels soft even if you walk barefoot. According to several travel magazines and other travel publications Anse Source Dí Argent is voted as the number one beach not only in Seychelles but around the world as well. But despite of its popularity, there are not many facilities here in Anse Source D' Argent. However, you can go snorkeling since some equipments are for rent.
