This stunning island is known for its palm-fringed beaches and ample natural scenery which captivates guests from all over the world. Ansa Georgette is a unique beach that is undeveloped and does not feature a single rock or piece of coral which allow the sea bed to create wonderful turquoise coloured water which is incredibly alluring. Although the beach is very attractive, it is unsafe to swim here as the waves and currents are very strong.

Anse Source d'Argent

The breathtakingly spectacular Anse Source d'Argent beach lies on the La Digue Island of the Seychelles, possibly one of the Seychelles most beautiful beaches and one of the most photographed. This beach is picture perfect, with its stretch of pure white sea-sand and unfiltered blue shades of Indian Ocean waters where fish and even sea turtles can often be seen at the shallow edges of the reef, even without a snorkelling mask on.

The beach is popular for snorkelling although the waters are too shallow for swimming, although you can wade through the waters to cool down. Because of the beaches beauty, it is rarely quiet and for those seeking less crowds it is suggested that early morning visits are better. You can also set foot past the first set of boulders to a larger bay that is usually less frequented and offers more privacy.

The Union State which you must pass through to reach this beach closes at 5PM so unfortunately sunset visits aren't possible, and sometimes with the high tide the beach can almost disappear so it is advised that you plan around the tides.
