Top 5 beaches in the Seychelles

Many of the world’s most beautiful beaches are located on the islands of the Seychelles archipelago. Here we select 5 of our favourites.

Anse Georgette, Constance Lemuria, Seychelles

Anse Georgette, Constance Lemuria

1. Anse Georgette 

We’re not just picking Anse Georgette because it happens to be the beach that our exclusive Lémuria hotel is nestled on. It was also voted number 1 beach destination by Trip Advisor this year, along with the island of Praslin where it’s located. The beautiful seclusion of this beach, a perfect white-sand cove sheltered by rocks teeming with sealife, make it one of those special places that will linger in your memory for years to come.

2. Anse Source d’Argent

A short boat-ride from Praslin is the stunning, tranquil island of La Digue where beautiful beaches are everywhere you turn. But probably the best of them all is Anse Source d’Argent, voted the second best beach in the world in CNN’s recent World’s 50 Best Beaches. CNN claims the salt-white and flamingo-pink sands and stunning reefs made it a major contender for the top spot. Read more on Travel CNN.

3. Port Launay

One of the most beautiful beaches on the island of Mahé, Port Launay is situated on the north-west side of the island ensuring calm, tranquil waters perfect for swimming. Constance Ephelia looks out across Port Launay Marine Reserve.

4. Anse Beau Vallon
Set in the north-west of Mahé Beau Vallon has stunning views across crystal waters to Silhouette and North Island. It is a perfect example of what you would expect from a Seychelles’ beach. A seemingly endless stunning white-sand beach offering you the chance to find your own secluded spot away from local restaurants and bars.

5. Anse Major
Accessible only by foot or boat this beautifully secluded beach on the island of Mahé is a haven of white sand and calm turquoise waters. Sheltered by granite it offers privacy and tranquillity as well as some amazing snorkelling opportunities.
Find out why Gareth Huw Davies rated Anse Major one of the best in the Seychelles in The Daily Mail.

Mauritius hot off the press

Mauritius is one of the most hotly tipped destinations in the Indian Ocean right now.

Recent articles in The Sunday Times, OK Magazine and Star Magazine all agree that the white-sand beaches, calm turquoise waters and elegant luxury accommodation make Mauritius a hard destination to beat.

OK and Star Magazine take a look at what attracts celebrities including Davina McCall and Ewan McGregor to the discreet and initmate setting of Constance Le Prince Maurice.

While Susan d’Arcy of The Sunday Times writes:

‘Ten years ago Mauritius was the go-to place in the Indian Ocean. Then the Maldives roundly eclipsed it. But now the island is fighting back… In truth, its beaches, though tropically terrific, are no match for the heart-stopping perfection of those in the Maldives. However, if you’re after a stress-free break, Mauritius fits the bill much better.’

D’Arcy goes on to write that further appeal lies in the ease of the transfer to Mauritian hotels and their extensive dining options as well as access to local culture.
