Praslin - Anse Lazio Seychelles
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor Profile

Discover Praslin - Anse Lazio

In Praslin, Anse Lazio, in the north of the island, is without a doubt one of the world's most beautiful beaches. With its round pink rocks, resting on extremely fair sand, and admirable turquoise water, it is truly a delightful sight and everyone will just dive into its crystal clear water with pleasure. It is actually in this idyllic scenery that Roman Polanski chose to shoot his famous "Pirates". Far away from any hotel, at the end of the single road running along the east coast and passing by some other superb beaches - Anse Possession (photo), Anse Takamaka -, Anse Lazio is of course a favourite. You will therefore always find a way to get there if you do not have your own means of transport. Prefer going in the afternoon or in the evening. Note that the beaches of the west coast onto which north-west trade winds blow (November to March) are often covered in seaweed thus less pleasant to stay on. Hotels organise then shuttles to the beaches of the east coast. The situation is usually reversed when south-east trade winds blow (May to September) except for Anse Lazio which remains superb during any season.

A bus stops at Anse Boudin, and you then have to walk for around 20 minutes to reach this paradise which has unfortunately become a victim of its own success.
