Petite Anse, La Digue Island

Dip yourself in the deep water of a pristine sea at Petite Anse, a secluded stretch of soft white sand backed by lush greenery. A good place to surf, the beach has no coral reef and the water gets deep quickly. This uncrowded spot particularly suits families, with opportunities for beach games, sunbathing, and picnicking. Partially privatized by a hotel, the beach is accessible via a trek in the forest or through a resort by buggy. You can use the hotel's restaurant on site for food and drink.

  • Probably the most beautiful beach of the island - although not as "photogenic" as the Anse Source d'Argent, but better sunbathing possibilities and PEOPLE's EMPTY!!!!! You can reach it via a small, steep forest path from the Grand Anse.

  • Stunning location, with beautiful scenery. During the period in which we visited, the beach is relatively small and the currents are strong with big waves. Complicated bathing. Nevertheless, the location remains heavenly. Prefer the period of March and April to benefit from a wider range. Beware its access is relatively difficult because it is necessary to climb some rocks in order to reach Petite Anse from Grande Anse!
