At a Glance:

  • Small beach near the extremely popular Beau Vallon, so Anse Marie Laure is often deserted.
  • Easy-access thanks to the nearby bus stop.
  • There are also parking spaces at the beach, although these are limited.
  • Beautiful scenery for photographs.
  • Shade provides protection from the sun.

Description:

Anse Marie Laure is a small, oft-deserted beach on the north-west coast of Mahé, the largest of the 115 Seychelles islands. Situated just a few hundred metres along the coast from the extremely popular Beau Vallon bay, Anse Marie Laure is usually deserted, with many more local tourists deciding to spend their time at Beau Vallon or elsewhere on Mahé.

Getting to this area on Mahé is relatively straightforward, with good bus and road links from most places on the island. Anse Marie Laure is, practically, located close to a bus stop, and the beach is also near to some parking. That said, parking spaces are limited, so you cannot be sure of finding the best space. The beach is also close to Beau Vallon, along with numerous different accommodations, so many visitors can simply get to Anse Marie Laure on-foot.

The surrounding region offers plenty of different activities and facilities, with the area around Beau Vallon serving as one of the island’s most developed regions. On the other side of the beach lies Bel Ombre, a small fishing region and one of the Seychelles’ administrative districts. Anse Marie Laure itself offers beautiful scenery, as with most of the other beaches in the Seychelles, perfect for amateur photographers and relaxing beach days. The water here is also shallow enough for swimming, but there is no protection afforded by a coral reef, so there are better options for swimming elsewhere on the island.

In truth, Anse Marie Laure doesn’t offer enough to merit a visit for most Seychelles holidaymakers, especially with Beau Vallon just around the corner. That said, this close proximity to the island’s busiest beach can work in Anse Marie Laure’s favour, with this small bay remaining quiet and relatively deserted almost all the time. Therefore, families or couples who are looking for a quiet spot to relax, away from the bustling Beau Vallon area, will find something to like about Anse Marie Laure.
