Beautiful beach

Anse Intendance was an amazing beach. Fairly rough surf, so not good for swimming or snorkeling. The sand was clean and very soft. Great place for pictures among the rocks.

Until we reached this beach, all the rest were very dissapointing. But this one was just great. Colder waters, nicer sand, beautiful background and some waves to play with.

A beautiful long well-kept white beach with fine sand. Since there is a hotel near-by, there is no sea weed and there is a lifeguard as well. A little bit far from the main road, but if you rent a car, there is a parking lot. Sadly, no eating/drinking/shower/toilet options available.

Anse Intendance is according to me the most beautiful beach on Mahé, it´s totally amazing. The white sand is perfect and the ocean is stunning. I think the best part of the beach is the one below Banyan tree hotel (the main building). It gets rather deep quick in the water and there were big waves both time I visited... More

This is the best beach in Mahé Island in terms of water colors. The sea is a bit rough we couldn't swim with the baby but definitely worth an afternoon there. Highly recomended

We went there with our rental car as we heard this is the most beautiful beach on Mahe. To be honest with you we were a bit disappointed caus we finde Anse Royale, Anse Takamaka or Anse Soleil prettier than this one. It is mourning on a high level, I get that but there are no such rocks at that... More

While we were returning from Mahe city to our hotel in the south east side side, we decided go up to the last bus stop as we saw the name of the terminus as Anse Intendance & it become an amazing experience as the public transport that carried only my wife & myself stopped at this spot for over 30...

One of the most beautiful beach on mahe. Quite secluded, situated in the south west of mahe, reachable by public transport too. Banayan tree resort is right at the beach. Must visit in Mahe.

We were at this beach this morning. The beach is beautiful, with wide, smooth sandy beaches. We were the only ones there until about 11AM. The waves were big, so we didn't go into the water. Also, the red flags were out along the beach. Plenty of free parking & shade to relax. Bring your own refreshments.
