Description:

Anse Soleil is a beautiful, bright bay with gorgeous golden sand and turquoise-blue water. Thanks in part to its close proximity to some accommodations, Anse Soleil is relatively popular amongst tourists, and there are usually at least a few people here enjoying the sand and the scenery. This is by no means a bad thing, however, and there is always enough space on the beach for everyone to find their own little spot to enjoy.

For those who aren’t staying nearby, arrival at Anse Soleil is not quite as simple, but far from difficult thanks to the nearby bus stop (about 200m from the beach), as well as the limited parking spaces available next to the beach and the restaurant here. This means that people can come from further afield on Mahé to enjoy the beautiful Anse Soleil if they so wish, as well as an evening meal at the restaurant on the beach.

Besides the restaurant, Anse Soleil is well-suited to swimming and snorkelling, as well as surfing at various points throughout the year. Swimmers should be careful, as the water can be quite deep here, especially at high tide, and there is a deep drop-off not far from the shore. However, providing they stay close to the beach itself, most swimmers will find they have no problems here. In the surrounding area, there are a few accommodations and restaurants, and shops can be found about 500m from the beach.

Anse Soleil is a truly stunning little beach; not the most exciting beach in the Seychelles, perhaps, but more than capable of holding its own against what else the country has to offer. In fact, the scenery here rivals any beach you could imagine, with beautiful white sand and crystal-clear water, making it well worth a visit during your Seychelles holiday.
