  • It is a good beach. We came here for the sunset. The waves are mild. Not very crowded too. The surrounding scenery looks great. It was the last beach we went in Mahé, so having gone to all the top bea...  more »
  • In 1742, the French explorer Lazare Picault landed in Mahé and claimed the island for France. In those days, Baie Lazare is named for this historic moment in honor of its discoverer. This popular half-moon-shaped bay offers beautiful scenery and amazing turquoise waters as well as other basic Seychelles products such as white sand and beautiful granite boulders that combine to create a stunning beach setting. Once on the beach, you can be impressed by the beautiful colors of the sand and the ocean. The water is turquoise, while the sand is a beautiful bright tone that contrasts the ocean in a brilliant way. This color interaction means that the bay is excellent for photographs, with the impressive granite formations completing the landscape well. The water here is not very deep, so swimming normally is not a problem. Other activities that Baie Lazare lends well to include snorkeling and windsurfing. Highlights: The history of this beach is really interesting; Was nominated by the French explorer Lazare Picault and is also the place where some residents of Seychelles once discovered pirate treasures buried there and are currently in the National Museum of Seychelles. Facts: 1000m x 20m-many visitors relatively shallow water – plenty of seaweed between June to September normal tide-small waves famous bay in honor of French explorer Lazare Picault good for swimming and windsurfing
