Petite Anse, Baie Lazare

#3 of 15 in Beaches in Mahe Island
Petite Anse represents a small bay with a golden sand beach. Because of substantial rock formations on both sides of the beach, the site is a draw for snorkeling. Lush vegetation along the back of the beach with palm trees provides necessary shade. Many visitors come to swim and sunbathe under granite boulders. While it can be a bit difficult to access, the beach offers a secluded tropical site. Make Petite Anse a part of your Baie Lazare vacation plans using our Baie Lazare road trip planner .

  • For this beach must enter through the Hotel Four Seasons and log in to the security, which is not a problem at all. The path is not as bad as at The Anse Soleil (neighbouring beach), but the paths are very steep. If you're lucky, a hotel employee takes you with his club car. The beach is really super beautiful and little crowded. Most of the guests are those of the hotel. There are many photo motifs and you can swim super. If you are here, you should also visit the neighbouring beach "Anse Soleil". Grade: 2+

  • We visited almost all the major beaches of the three islands (Mahe, Praslin and La Digas), and on the aggregate criteria of bathing, sand color, clean water, this beach is just in the first place, sharing it with the beach bo Valon, where even less waves, and even better going into the water, but the sand is not so white and not so picturesque. There is incredibly white sand, I have seen such only in the Dominican Republic, and even then, not on all beaches, clear water, and fish swim. The only negative - not everywhere is a good call, there are a lot of stones and pieces of coral, it is better to come here in slippers. But there are cool waves, high enough to be interesting, but small enough to be safe)) 10-15 to walk. But it's worth it!!!
