Grande Anse is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Seychelles island of La Digue. Not to be confused with Grande l’Anse beach, it is also a beautiful stretch of powder white sand bookmarked by headlands of large granite boulders, and the waters are the same stunning turquoise blue. There are not many visitors here as it is on the quieter southwest coast, and you need to take care as the waters have strong currents.

You can enjoy surfing on this wild beach, but you need to be aware that the water grows deep very quickly because there is no protection from a coral reef. It is not safe to swim here. However, the beach is incredibly beautiful, and perfect for relaxing and taking in the paradisical surrounds.

Grande Anse has a restaurant and some basic facilities, so you can spend all day here if you want. Just bear in mind that there isn’t a great deal of shade, and cooling off in the sea may not be an option. You will however, enjoy the scenery, as this is one of the wildest beaches in the Seychelles to enjoy the feel of sand beneath your feet.
