Beach in the west of Mahé

Interesting facts about the ANSE SOLEIL:

Anse Soleil on the south-west coast of Mahé is a breathtakingly beautiful bay, good for swimming and snorkelling, presents a wide sandy beach surrounded by large shady trees. This beach is very photogenic and a popular place for weekend picnics on the beach. The journey here is a bit of a journey off the beaten track, but well worth the extra effort. There is also a small beach café here that serves excellent seafood.

Here you will find paradise on earth, white icing sugar sand, turquoise sea, many palm trees and a great view of the northwest of Island.
The water here becomes deep relatively quickly and higher waves can come up. Suitable for swimming and snorkelling in calm waters.
The beach should not be missing in any photo album! Among other things you can watch great sunsets here.
The beach is very popular with holidaymakers and locals alike.

To get to the beach, you have to walk through the "Chez Julien Restaurant", where you can also have a good lunch.


From Victoria it takes about 45 minutes to get there and it is about 30 kilometres.
Go south on Bois de Rose Avenue, in Roche Caiman take the third exit at the roundabout (Victoria South Petrol Station) and cross the island on La Misere Street. Once in Grand Anse, turn left at the petrol station and follow the coastal road. Shortly after Michael Adams Gallery there is a turn-off on the right, "Anse Soleil Road". Follow the sign "Kempinski". Drive past the hotel entrance to the "Four Season Hotel" and take the road downhill on the right just before the entrance.
From here on, look for roadside parking spaces.
Alternative route: At the Roche Caiman roundabout, take the second exit straight ahead, continue on the Providence Highway, at Airport Pass the church and take the East Coast Road to Anse Royal. Turn right at the church onto Les Canelles Road. In Anse Boileau on the other side of the island turn left and follow the above description.
