Beach in the west of Mahé

Interesting facts about the L'ANSE AUX POULES BLEUES:

Anse aux Poules Bleues, beach in the southwest of Mahé, is a quiet, shady beach neighbouring Anse à la Mouche, whose beach disappears at high tide, and definitely worth a visit. Parking is available under the large takamaka trees. The water is shallow and perfect for families with children or snorkelling enthusiasts.

The beach here is rather yellowish-beige, the sea is shallow with few waves. Takamaka trees offer a lot of shade.
Numerous small fishing boats anchor here.
Within walking distance from the beach is the Michael Adams Studio accessible, this is absolutely worth a visit. Predominant colours are various shades of green, blue and turquoise.
Michael's children Tristan and Alyssa have also exhibited their works of art here.


Start in Victoria via Bois de Rose Avenue heading south. In Roche Caiman take the third exit at the roundabout (Victoria South Petrol Station) and follow the Island via La Misere Road. Once in Grand Anse, turn left at the petrol station. From here it is about 20 minutes along the coast road to the south. The beach is somewhat hidden behind the coastal vegetation.
A clue is a small fruit table on the left side of the road directly at an elevated zebra crossing.
Alternative route: Along the east coast to the village of Anse Royal. Turn right at the church and cross the island via Les Canelles Road. When you arrive at Anse la Mouche turn left. From here it is about 5 minutes.
Travel time for both routes is about 40 minutes each.
There are plenty of parking spaces between the beach and the road.
