Beach in the northwest of Mahé

Interesting facts about the SUNSET BEACH:

In Glacis, on the north-west coast of Mahé, this small beach is located near the Sunset Beach Hotel and can be reached by a path from the main road or by walking up stairs from the hotel parking lot.

Sunset Beach is a small beach at the north of Mahé. Here you can find fine powder sand and crystal clear sea. The epitome of a paradise beach. In the distance you can see the islands Silhouette and North Island.

The water gets deep relatively quickly, has occasional rocks and there can be high waves.
There is sufficient shade, especially in the morning.
On some days Kenneth - a blond Rasta - has set up his jewellery shop on the beach and sells locally made necklaces and bracelets.

Surrounded by palm trees and trees, this beautiful beach is excellent for swimming and snorkeling. Snorkelling is particularly good around the rocks below the hotel, and sightings of turtles are common. The sea has a sudden drop in depth near the coast. Small children need direct adult supervision. As the name suggests, the sunsets here are breathtaking!


Sunset at the beach, approx. 18km from Airport or a 15-minute drive from Victoria. From Victoria Clock Tower, head towards the traffic lights and turn onto Revolution Avenue at the traffic lights. Continue on the main road up the hill and on the other side until you reach the Beau Vallon Police Station. Turn right at the police station intersection, head towards Glacis and go straight on for about 3.5km past Hilton Seychelles Northolme Resort & Spa on the left. Look for the Sunset Beach Hotel on the left.

Shortly after the Sunset Beach Hotel in the left curve, there are some parking possibilities at the roadside. From there, a small partly tarred path leads to the beach.
