Description:

The Pointe au Sel is an attractive, calm region on the eastern coast of Mahé, located in the south of the island. The water here is shallow and generally calm, making it suitable for swimming and snorkelling. The nearby shops, restaurants, and accommodations mean that the area has plenty of facilities to enable visitors to spend a whole day here if they like.

Getting to the beach is simple, thanks to the nearby coastal road that runs right past the beaches on Mahé’s east coast, including the Pointe au Sel. There is parking available off the road, near to the beach, and there is also a bus service that passes by the beach, ensuring easy-access for anyone staying on Mahé during their Seychelles holiday. There are also a number of accommodations nearby, so guests of these hotels can simply walk along the beach to reach this point.

The water here is shallow and calm, making it ideal for swimmers, with the water being safe enough for children to paddle in too. The beach is also ideal for snorkelling, and sometimes you may even see windsurfers on the water here. That said, in general the beach is quiet, making it more well-suited to a peaceful picnic, an evening stroll, or a spot of sunbathing under the tropical Seychelles sun.

With shops and restaurants nearby, shade for relief from the sun, and beautiful shallow water, the Pointe au Sel is suitable for all kinds of Seychelles holidaymakers to spend a beautiful beach day on the eastern coast of Mahé, the Seychelles’ largest island.
