Anse Intendance, Mahe Island

A remote spot nestled on the southwest of the island, Anse Intendance offers wild, pristine beach tranquility. Follow the mangrove-lined jungle path past the one nearby resort, to white powdered sands and corner after corner of sun-kissed seclusion. Swimming is not advised from June to September due to strong currents, although the lack of reef does attract daring surfers throughout the year. The beach has few nearby facilities, so pack a picnic and plenty of water.

  • It is a beautiful beach, but the high waves have not invited for swimming. You can see flying dogs there. Many photo motifs, especially from the air, are available.

  • Great beach, as almost everywhere in the Seychelles: white sand, clean water, lack of algae. However, here are the biggest waves we have seen on the islands. It is very beautiful, you can sit for hours on the shore and look at the blue-turquoise waves with white foam, but swimming is very uncomfortable, I would even say dangerous (which, incidentally, says and a sign on the beach that it is not allowed for swimming!). Even if you go to the waist, it still knocks down and the reverse current is trying to drag into the sea ... It is obligatory to visit, but the hotel must be chosen elsewhere)
