About Baie Lazare (Seychelles)
Named after the French explorer Lazare Picault, Baie Lazare or Lazare Bay is located on the island of Mahé in Seychelles. This palm-fringed bay has a narrow sandy beach on the southwestern coast and the bay is one of the quieter spots in Seychelles. As Baie Lazare, Seychelles lies next to a small lagoon which is sheltered by a coral barrier; visitors can generally cross the barrier at the time of high tide. A sandy bed lying 30 yards away from the beach, it is sprinkled with coral which gets denser closer to the reef. At the reef, during high tide, the water recedes up to 3 feet but visitors can still move to the reef drop-off. The reef plateau maybe shallow but it is inhabited by multitudes of coral formations.
Providing a great view of open vistas of beautiful half-moon bay, travelers can enjoy this secluded stretch of sand any time of the day by staying in one of the nearby Baie Lazare hotels.
Activities at Baie Lazare:
With Kempinski Resort and Lazare Picault Hotel located on either side of the bay, here one can have a lot of experiences to cherish. Kempinski Seychelles Resort facing Baie Lazare is a popular upscale hotel with a spa and a casino. The waters at this mesmerising place are ideal for swimming at anytime of the year except from June to October. The white-sand beach is usually empty, making it a great place for a day out. The Anse Gaulette beach, at the Lazare Picault hotel end of the bay, is a great place to watch the sun go down, while at the Kempinski end, the tranquil waters make it a decent place for snorkeling.
As the bay is exposed to strong winds from June to October, snorkeling or swimming is not recommended in this period, especially around the channel. Baie Lazare Beach is often secluded during the off season in Seychelles.
Festivals and Events at Baie Lazare:
On an excursion to Baie Lazare on Mahe Island, one can partake in the International Deep-Sea Fishing Competition here. Besides that, one can also enjoy the celebration of Seychelles Tourism Festival Food Fiesta during a visit to this beautiful beach.
