Beach in the west of Mahé

Interesting facts about ANSE SOUILLAC:

Dieser Strand befindet sich im Nordwesten der Insel Mahé nahe des ehemaligen NYS Youth Village in Cap Ternay.
The beach is located in a small protected lagoon, which makes the water rather calm and shallow. At the northern end you can admire mangrove trees.
This beach is mostly deserted and there are hardly any shady places. It is suitable for swimming and snorkeling.
Between June and September there may be seaweed on the beach.

Nestled between the wide and breathtaking beaches of Port Launay and Baie Ternay, this tiny bay is well worth a detour. The small beach framed by large granite rocks is often completely lonely and the sea here is suitable for both swimming and snorkelling.

Starting in Victoria, drive from the clock tower in Victoria to the traffic lights and turn left into Revolution Avenue. Drive past the police headquarters (on your left) and turn left into the first road after it, Bel Air Road via the rather winding Sans Soucis Road (you can make a short stop on the way at the Mission Lodge lookout and the tea factory) to Port Glaud, where you will now meet the coastal road, which you turn right into. Follow it past Eden's Holiday Resort and the church (on your right), through the mangroves until you reach the end of the two-lane road. Shortly after Port Launay (Ephelia Hotel), the road becomes much narrower with some potholes and few passing places. Continue uphill on the narrower road for about 250 metres to the entrance of the abandoned "NYS Youth Village". The first small bay you will reach is Anse Souillac.
Here you can park directly at the roadside. Next to the gate you see a sign to the left to the "Back Beach".
Travel time: a little over 40 minutes.
All buses with terminus "Port Launay" (larger bus station). From here follow the road on foot for about 25 minutes. Palm tree
