Beach in the southwest of Mahé
Anse Royal is a long fine sandy beach. The water is shallow and you can swim there. From time to time there can also be higher waves.
This section of small rock-framed coves along the Anse Royale coast in south-east Mahé, which stretches from an area known as Fairyland ("Fairy Land") down to the Anglican church of Anse Royale, is a wonderful place for swimming and snorkelling. The best snorkelling spots are around the rocks of Fairyland and extend to the small Island just off the coast, where you can marvel at countless coral fish in bright colors.
The water here is quite shallow and enclosed by a reef that keeps bigger fish away. However, the currents can be deceptively strong, so it is advisable not to swim too far out. This part of the coast is especially recommended during the north-west monsoon, when the water is clear, gentle and calm.
The Anse Royale is located about 11 km or about 10 minutes by car from the Airport removed. Turn left at the international airport and follow the main road south to the Anse Royale petrol station (on your right), which is opposite the beach. The restaurant Kafe Creol is located on this beach.
There is ample parking at the roadside (especially in the southern part of the Anse Royal)
