Description:

When many people think of the Seychelles, they think of Mahé, and those who think of Mahé will likely think of Beau Vallon bay, arguably the island’s most famous and popular beach. One of the longest beaches in the Seychelles, Beau Vallon is popular amongst tourists and locals thanks to its mixture of beautiful scenery, extensive activity options, fantastic surrounding infrastructure, and widespread appeal. If you are lucky enough to be staying in one of the many accommodations that lie near to the beach, it will simply be a short walk from your room to the golden sand of Beau Vallon. It’s not much more difficult for everyone else, however, as there is plenty of public parking next to the beach, and the frequent bus service stops on the road beside the beach, allowing easy-access by car, taxi, or bus. The sheer choice of different activities at Beau Vallon is unique in the Seychelles. The beautiful sand and shallow, clear water are well-suited to relaxing beach days under the sun; the beautiful underwater scenery lends itself well to snorkelling or scuba diving; the widespread bay means that you can easily try out some surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, or jet skiing without disturbing others; and finally, the numerous excursions and rental options here mean that the only limit is what you want to spend your day doing. There is often a lifeguard on duty, which contributes to the safe, welcoming atmosphere of the beach, and is a sign of just how popular Beau Vallon can be. Beau Vallon is also worth a visit in the evening thanks to the beautiful sunset views over the water, as well as the local restaurants and bars, including a nightclub, that can be found next to the beach. With such a variety of different things to do, it’s little wonder that Beau Vallon is so well-known by tourists and locals alike, and this beach is one of the few ‘must-see’ locations for any Seychelles holidaymaker.
