Seychelles Sights

Anse Intendance

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 12/03/2014

Fodor's Review

A half mile of powder white sand, this is one of Mahé's most picturesque beaches. It's also one of the wildest, with the lack of a reef creating a large swell that makes it a favorite for surfers; swimming can be rough. It's also a favorite spot for sunbathing. The Banyan Tree Seychelles dominates the northern side of this beach, but it is open to nonguests. If you are organized, you could make a reservation at one of their excellent restaurants for lunch or dinner. Anse Intendance is one of the few places on Mahé where turtles still nest. Amenities : parking, toilets (only for hotel guests). Best for : surfing.
