On either side of the south-western tip of Mahé are two magnificent bays with rolling waves and soft white sand. These two beaches are best suited for walking and photography as the strong currents here make them dangerous for swimming. Because of this and their remote location, walkers can usually enjoy a solitary stroll along this pristine coastline.
These bays are located approximately 17km from the airport. From the airport, turn left and travel south on the main road passing Anse Royale petrol station. Continue on this road until you reach the Quatre Bornes police station on your right. From here take the left turn onto Intendance Road and drive for about 1km until you reach another junction. Keep to the road on the left and continue to the end.
