Clearly those people that enthuse over Source d'Argent have never visited world-class rocky beaches such as at The Baths on Virgin Gorda; or those in the Algarve in Portugal. Or even visited La Digue's FINEST beach, Petite Anse - a truly world-class beach which stands...More

It's really worth paying the 115 rupees to see the gorgeous granite rocks and turqoise waters. Some turtles included in the price :)
