About Grand Anse Beach in Seychelles
Grande Anse is perhaps the most majestic beach in Mahe, and definitely the longest one on its western coast. Mahe’s towering mountainous landscape looms over the beautiful beach here, as the powdery sand slopes its way into the vast stretch of turquoise blue, making the scene a picture-perfect one. The water at Grand Anse, Mahe is ideal for swimming and surfing as well. However, it is also deeper than most of the other Mahe beaches and there is occasionally a strong under current. So unless you are an expert, it’s better not to go into the water.
The lack of coral reefs at Grand Anse, Seychelles strikes snorkelling and diving out. But the beach is still loaded with many options to indulge in – sun bathing, family games like beach football and volleyball or simply hiking along the beach. To make up for the inaccessibility into the water, you can back a picnic or carry a book to spend a day at the Grande Anse Beach. The vastness of the beach is its main attraction. You can take as long a walk as you want along the shoreline.
Grand Anse tours comprises of plenty of natural beauty and opportunities to click the most beautiful pictures. Whether you have taken up accommodation at one of the hotels along the beach or have come here for a day trip, Grand Anse beach will not disappoint you.
