Beau Vallon Beach

Mahe island

Only 10 minutes away from the capital Victoria, Beau Vallon offers almost everything a visitor is looking for: a long beach surrounded by green nature, a place to eat and drink, relaxation facilities, water sports possibilities, and proximity to the real Seychellois life in the heart of Mahé.

Across the bay, you can see Silhouette Island and North Island.

The large bay closes in on a 3 kilometre crescent of floury sand and a lagoon ideal for swimming, snorkelling, diving, water-skiing, paragliding, fishing, jet-skiing or simply sightseeing on a glass-bottom boat. For lovers of nautical activities, the place is ideal for admiring the catamarans or other luxury yachts that anchor in this bay.

The water is deep enough for swimming, although you have to be careful not to swim in the areas where the fishermen land in their small boats. In the northern part of the beach, there are some excellent places for snorkeling, especially around the big granite rocks. Be careful of the Sea Urchins during low tide though even when wearing foot protection.
