The variety of different smaller beaches that make up Anse Nord d'Est all look slightly different, and this variety means that North East Point offers something for almost everyone.


  • 2200m x 20m - moderately busy
  • Water can be deep - seaweed November to July
  • Normal tide - high, choppy waves
  • Large, relatively popular beach on Mahé
  • Suitable for surfing thanks to the waves


At a Glance:

  • Really a collection of several smaller beaches that stretch across two kilometres of land.
  • Generally safe for families, but the water is deep in places, making it unsafe for unconfident swimmers.
  • Bus stop nearby and public parking is widely available.
  • Shops are located nearby.
  • Natural shade provides protection from the sun.


Anse Nord d'Est is the name given to a collection of smaller beaches in the north-east of the Seychelles’ largest island, Mahé. This long stretch of coast possesses a wilder atmosphere than other beaches on Mahé, resulting in higher, choppier waves than can be found in many other Seychelles bays. The water can also be deep in some places, so although swimming is possible, children and less-than-confident swimmers should stay out of the water.

Getting to the beach is simple by a variety of means. There are some areas of public parking, so arrival by car or taxi is simple. There is also a bus stop near to the beach, ensuring that even those without a rental car can enjoy this area of the Seychelles’ largest island.

The beach itself is suitable for swimming, but the aforementioned choppy ocean surface, plus the depth of the water, can make this area problematic for children and unconfident swimmers, so anyone venturing into the water should be monitored at all times. Conversely, the area is excellent for surfing precisely because of these same waves. In terms of facilities, there are no restaurants nearby, but there are some shops for your basic needs.

Perhaps the best thing about Anse Nord d'Est is the mixture of different scenery here. This two-kilometre stretch is really a collection of smaller bays, and each is slightly different to the last. Therefore, anyone looking for a lot of variety in the same place will find Anse Nord d'Est to be a great addition to their Seychelles holiday.
