Beach in the west of Mahé

Interesting facts about the L'ANS ANGLE:

The L'ans Angle, the small beach with the Island Therese is a nice photo motif and is a rather secluded beach for those who want to relax in peace and quiet. It is accessible from the nearby L'ans Trusalo easy to reach by simply climbing over the rocks there, and definitely worth a visit.

This beach is located in the northwest of the main island of Mahé.
It is rather unknown due to its location and the circumstances that it can only be reached at low tide.
The sand is interspersed with washed up shells and corals. The sea has no protective reef and is very restless, which makes it unsuitable for swimming.


From Victoria via Bel Air Road uphill to Sans Soucis Road. On this route there are some worthwhile viewpoints (Rochon Dam, Mission Lodge) and trails (Copolia, Trois Freres, Salazie, Casse-Dent, Morne Blanc, Tea Tavern Trail).
When you reach Port Glaud on the west coast, turn right. Parking is available just after the "Del Place" restaurant opposite the church.
From here you can already see the Anse Trusalo in the background, you continue on foot along the entire beach "Anse Lislette", crossing a river that ends at the beach (a bit upstream is the "Sauzier Waterfall"). At the end of the beach you walk around the rocks and you are directly at the Anse Trusalo (this is only possible at low tide - remember this for the way back. Also the river crossing!).
There is a trail behind the rocks but it starts on the grounds of the Ephelia Hotel and is not accessible to non-hotel guests.
At the end of Anse Trusalo there is a granite rock with blue markings, here you cross the forest - about 30 m.
The journey time is just over 30 minutes for 17 km and about 20 minutes on foot.
