Anse Takamaka is a bay on the island of Praslin, and the treasure chests of pirates have even been found here.

This Seychelles beach offers a view of the Indian Ocean you don’t want to miss.

Anse Lazio is often voted not just the best Seychelles beach, but also the best beach in the entire world.

If you are looking for an absolutely untouched, picturesque beach, then Anse Georgette is the beach for you. It requires a 45-minute hike to get there, but it’s remoteness is part of its charm, making it more of an insider’s beach. Many people see dolphins, sharks, and manta rays at this beach. There are strong waves and currents here, so be careful swimming.

6. Anse Boudin, Praslin
