Snorkelling and the most beautiful beach in Seychelles

I’ve spent an amazing week in Seychelles last month. I can honestly say that it’s the most beautiful exotic place I’ve visited so far.

If you have ever search anything about Seychelles, you’ve probably seen the most popular beach, Anse Source d’Argent. A lot of people are left with the impression that all the beaches in Seychelles look like that. Well, that’s not entirely true.

That beach, is located on a small island, that most of the people just come and visit for a few hours. The downside of this popular beach? It’s pretty expensive to get there from other islands, and if you are going with a guided tour, you have to share that little paradise with a looot of people.

The good news is, that in Seychelles, are many paradisiac beaches, just for you or a very small group of people. And this article, is about the one that totally won my heart. A beach between two islands of  the Ste Anne Marine National Park, the most beautiful beach in Seychelles.

We booked a full day trip,from Mahe, which included two snorkelling stops, one and a half hour stop on the most beautiful beach and a BBQ grill on a secluded island. It was one of the most beautiful days.

But let me tell you and show you more about that little piece of Heaven

It’s a temporary beach, I mean it’s there only during low tide, that means only a few hours per day. So, this is a wide path of sand between two or three small islands. On the sides, there is  shallow turquoise water , without rocks, where you can walk or get a perfect tan.

Ste. Anne Marine Park it’s famous for it’s very beautiful marine habitat, and 6 small islands, that are mostly private. Luckily, everywhere in Seychelles, beaches are public. Even on a private island. The boat left us alone, in this magical place, for about one and a half hours.

I was so excited and so desperate to enjoy every angle of that amazing view. Every inch of that landscape was sublime.

I feel so grateful that I found this amazing tour. As you can see, not a lot of people knew about this place. during our stay there, there were only 5 other persons. Who were in fact part of our tour.

After one hour, we could see the tide rising, the path of sand was getting tighter and the water was slowly taking over the whole beach. Amazing process to witness.

The boat picked us up and we all headed to another secluded beach, on a small private island. There, a fabulous traditional BBQ was waiting for us and a plastic table with plastic chairs.

Would give away any 5 stars restaurant for that simplicity and that view.

Before heading towards our second snorkelling spot, we had 45 minutes to relax after lunch. We had some fresh ( fresh like directly from the palm tree) coconut water and we just laid on the beach.

Snorkelling was very nice, I love witnessing marine life, especially coloured and friendly fish 🙂

The end of a perfect day? While heading back, we saw dolphins playing 🙂

The whole trip took us about 7-8 hours. We only needed our bathing suits and our camera.

The cost was aprox. 80 Euros. In the beginning I thought is was a little bit too much, but after 30 minutes I was totally happy with everything.

I now that there are a few companies that are doing the Ste. Anne tour. I went on this trip with Michael’s boat, a father of 3 boys who were driving, cooking, fishing, marketing, and everything else. A nice and very thoughtful environment.

Seychelles is in my top two exotic locations, so far. I loved the natural diversity, the pristine beauty of the islands, people, everything. You know those perfect wallpapers with exotic locations? Well, in Seychelles you can have that wherever you look. I hope to go back one day.

      Hi, you tried all the details from the Boat? It’s in the last picture. That’s all I have. But he should answer by email. If not, he is daily on the beach from Coral Strand Hotel.

    I fully agree that Seychelles is really paradise on Earth. I cannot think of a better holiday destination for people who love seaside and who enjoy pristine beaches, where you can hardly find other people. We visited Mahe, Praslin and La Digue last autumn and we instantly fell in love with these islands. We will definitely return to Seychelles and maybe have this tour. to St Anne Marine. Mmmm… I am daydreaming now of another holiday to these wonderful islands…

      I still think that Seychelles is probably the most beautiful place I have ever visited. In terms of nature . . .
