Anse Coco Beach, La Digue Island

Paddle in the crystal clear turquoise sea of Anse Coco Beach, a secluded sanctuary amidst lush greenery and occasional palm trees. Only accessible on foot, this stretch of white sand in eastern La Digue provides postcard-like relaxation. Interesting rock formations dotting the sand complement the sheltered cove and natural shallow pools. Due to strong currents, only experienced swimmers should venture farther than the shallow pools. This remote location lacks tourist facilities, so bring everything you need with you.

  • it's a little tricky to get there but, once you're there, it's worth it! it is little frequented and offers wonderful scenery, especially in the season when the sea is calm. Very recommended!

  • Wonderful place! Do not miss the natural pool on the northern part of the beach behind the rocks.
  • It takes a bit to get here (bike ride to Grand Anse , hike past Petite Anse, then about another 20 minute hike). It's deserted as hell. There is a pretty strong rip, so if you're not a strong swimmer stay out of the water until you go past the rocks to the natural wading pool.
