  • With its many beautiful beaches, it is one of those that is well suited for bathing. You will always find shade places and there are kiosks to buy drinks.

  • In my opinion it is a more narrow beaches than La Digue.It is very long, not particularly deep but certainly very accessible with various kiosks. It's just after the Orangerie, just a 5-minute bike ride from La Passe. In August it was much more sheltered than Grand Anse or Anse Cocos, so sea calmer and enjoyable even if the weather was not on our side unfortunately.

  • Very nice beach!
  • Beautiful spot. Was told by our local Host that it is best for snorkeling because of all the corals. I found the water too shallow for snorkeling but the beach too full of corals to just wade around in. Still a great beach just maybe not for swimming. However we did see 3 Fairy terns here and that made it all worthwhile!
