We snorkeled. Not great snorkeling but we did see some new creatures so worth trying. Beach is amazingly beautiful and clean. Worth a few hours. Easy bike ride from town.

Secluded beach with minimum people. There is not shadow but you can "buy" a couple of palm leaves sanded into the sand. You will pay 100 per person and you get coconut and fresh coconut peaces and big smile from the salesman. With swimming it...More

A fifteen minute up and down hike from Grande Anse takes you to this lovely quiet beach. The crystal clear breakers are quite powerful but well worth braving to get to the quieter waters beyond.Very few people compared to the more accessible beaches make for...More

To be honest, I think La Digue Island is overrated. Once you see one beach, the others look nearly the same - A white sandy beach surrounded by big granite rocks. So once you see Grand Anse, you kind of seeing all beaches. The worst...More

Clearly those people that enthuse over famous Anse Source d'Argent beach (a short, narrow strip of sand with hordes of visitors) have never visited world-'class rocky beaches such as at The Baths on Virgin Gorda; or those in the Algarve in Portugal. Or even visited...More

Petite Anse is the second, middle one, after Grand Anse and before Anse Cocos. It's reachable by a easy hike over a hill from Grand Anse. The beach is very beautiful, with huge granite rocks on its sides and beautiful turquoise sea. There are natural...More

Beautiful, secluded and everything you'd expect from a beach in the Seychelles. Be sure to take water and food as the nearest restaurant is on Grand Anse.

Of all beaches on La Digue this was the most beautiful for us. It's absolutely clean, white sand, wonderful rock formations and turquois clear water... Unfortunately you cannot swim there!

Coming from Grand Anse there’s a little hiking trail to reach this beach. Maybe about 10 mins. Also very beautiful with Giant rocks. Also wavy in August so not really for swimming at this period. The beach has little huts to protect you from the...More
