Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

There are dead coral in here. This is very sad to see. I cried all the way back of about half an hour.

When we arrived by taxi at this beach, the hotel staff first measured our temperature and we had to sign a book about our temperature and where we came from. Then we went down on our feet. There were beautiful views along the way. The beach was very nice, the sand was bright. We even talked to each other that this might be the most beautiful beach in Seychelles Mahe :)

This is one of the best swimming beaches on Mahe. Gorgeous water in a protected cove.The Four Seasons Resort lines the beach, but you can visit the beach even if you aren't a guest. Just park in the small lot at the entrance to the hotel and follow the road downhill to the beach.

Drive toward the four seasons hotel. When you arrive at the security hut between the roads, take the road on the left, sign in, and walk down the road 10 min staying to right, At the beach there is a swing, activities for hire, soft sand, boulders, lush green foliage, snorkel rental, and food. The water is unbelievably blue, with no waves when we visited in February. When you walk down the isn’t good signage- you mostly stay to the right.

This has fewer reviews but I have to rate it as one of the finest beaches on Mahe. Yes you do have to pass through the four seasons to get to it but it is well worth a visit as it is really well kept and stunning. It is memorable due to its location and it’s natural beauty away from the more busier and more commercial beaches. There are no vendors or hawkers on this beach and you can only dine at the four seasons or bring your own supplies.

If the beach is to your liking then you may well need to treat yourself to a lunch with desert at the Four Seasons aswell. We had the melted chocolate cookie for desert and it is simply to die for!!!

Park outside the four seasons as close to the guest entrance as you can (turn right and at the fork in the road), sign in with security and it’s about 10 minutes walk down to the beach. Beautiful white sand as and clear blue sea, very photogenic!

This beach was a dream! What I loved the most is that it was not crowded whatsoever! The service was truly amazing (whether you are a hotel guest or just a visitor). There are several restaurants and a bar as well with the most astounding view, highly recommended!

Getting through the Four Seasons resort, since all beaches in Seychelles are public, by giving your name and where you stay in Mahé, you can reach this amazing beach in 10 minutes on foot (way down), or in 2 minutes on an open electric vehicle getting a lift on from the personal working there. Since the way back up is really steep, a lift would be even more appreciated....wait for it, be patient...and someone will collect you.
Arrived the beach I suggest to set your towels neat to the beach swing, almost t at the end of the beach. Behind you, there will find a place with giant turtles which my children use to spend some time with . In front of you the best side to snorkel in safety. If you want to swim and play in the water, just stay on the right after the floating buoy in order to avoid corals. There is even the chance to have a shower before leaving.
If you want to stay on the beach exactly as a four seasons guest, just ask. 1 sun bed is 80 euro per day ( 50 for kids) including sun bed, towels, fresh water whenever you want, fresh snacks served to guest, full access to outdoor pool and water sports pavilion. Otherwise, with your towels is free. Just bring water and food with you cause restaurants prices are 5 stars luxury.
The time I visited the Island this was withou a doubt the best beach to stay, pristine waters and few people.
