    This is simply not to be missed!
    For anyone visiting Seychelles, especially La Digue you should not miss a visit. During our stay on La Digue we spent four hours there, including lunch which felt just about the right amount of time. The photos just don't do it justice, and it's without doubt the most beautiful beach we've seen on the three Seychelles inhabited islands. It might be possible for some people to walk there from the ferry terminal in maybe thirty to forty minutes, but I wouldn't recommend it with the heat and humidity. Much better to get a buggy which should cost about 200 rupees each way. We used Babi (2514338) who spoke great English and was very reliable. I believe he is also the owner of Kot Babi Guest House. The beach itself is accessed via Union Estate, which has lots of facilities and the grounds are beautiful to walk through on the way to and from the beach. The Old Pier Restaurant is pretty decent too with moderate prices. The fee to enter the estate is 150 rupees per person. This includes the beach. Memorable, and money well spent!

    Definitely a unique place worth the detour or spending a couple of days!
    Definitely a unique place worth the detour or spending a couple of days. The beach with its rocks and monolith are unique to the Seychelles. the water is super, the white sand is nice. not too crowded for such a gorgeous place. one can access only by bike. price of bike rental per day from the harbour is reasonable (150 SCR). the ride is nice in itself with giant turtles along the way in the monolith rock site. get some food or snacks with you if you plan to spend the day. lots of shade by the beach. the further you walk once you park the bike, the more small coves and beaches you have for a romantic getaway. a must see.

    Perfect!
    One of the most picturesque beaches we have been to! It does get quite crowded during the day but as day trippers leave by evening, you can get the beaches all to yourself (and there are quite a few of them if you keep walking forward). We based ourselves next to a cute little beach bar who kept making excellent fresh fruit cocktails for us (150SCR a drink). Once you have a day pass, you can step in and out all day, and we even ventured out to pack some takeaway to eat at the beach. We tried the crystal water kayaking (the lazy version - where they tow you tied to a boat, and it's perfect!) And got a view of the beautiful rock formations from afar the beach (like the drone versions you would see online). It was amazing. Spend the day there, pack everything you can want (food, drink, towels, snorkels, book, etc) and head there. No one will ask you to leave even when it gets dark and we left post sunset in almost pitch dark. It felt magical.

    Unforgettable experience.
    Our final days of our Seychelles honeymoon trip were on the island of La Digue. Anse Source d'Argent lives up to it's reputation as one of the most photographed and majestic beaches in the world. The giant granite boulders and turquoise water left us stunned. Don't forget your drone!

    Unquestioned natural beauty
    Never become bored with this experience of nature and its unspoiled beauty. Truly exquisite and breathtakingly beautiful. The beach, natural rock formations, alcoves, and interesting botanical features make the experience memorable indeed! It's marvellous to reach the fresh fruit cocktail bar stalls that's unexpected. The underpinning excitement is going through the process of fresh fruit selection, and then enjoying the perfect fruit cocktail while kicking sand at the shoreline. The local staff are amazing with outstanding hospitality on their responses. Awesome indeed!

    As stunning as I dreamt it would be
    As stunning as it looked on YouTube... Not much more to say other than GO!! Best seen midday to late afternoons for the beautiful colours of the water and the huge fish that swim around you. Any later and the tide is in and it's not quite as pretty Don't expect Robinson Crusoe solitude, there will be lots of tourists...but nicely dotted about. The rocks are incredible.. Perfect

    Beautiful Views
    We rode our bikes through the park and then you get to the beach. The walk to the water is a beautiful path with trees and boulders and views of the ocean. One of the prettiest beaches around the world. Snorkeling wasn’t as good as Anse Severe but it wasn’t too bad.

We were really excited to see the “best beach in the Seychelles” and we’re so underwhelmed. First being greeted by someone asking for money to get into the gated entrance (instantly felt like a tourist trap). We asked the woman if we can get to just the beach without paying we didn’t want to see any of the other attractions in the estate and her reply was “this is a business” 😅

When we got to the beach it felt the total opposite of luxury. People trying to sell you stuff and lots of seaweed and other mess. Yes there was a palm tree and some boulders (like most beaches here) but really not the best views. We’ve been here for 12 days travelling all the islands and it was actually the worst beach we’ve been too!

Don’t believe the hype, it’s a marketing scam to get you to pay entry. Spend your time at all the other free and far more beautiful beaches!

This is the most photographed beach in the world and its not difficult to see why. It is a sight to behold. The huge granite boulders are amazing and offer a great contrast to the perfectly clear waters of the Indian ocean. I have never seen sea so clear before and the sand was so white. We really enjoyed taking photos and enjoying the view.

However, we feel that on the whole there are far more calm and tranquil beaches on the Seychelles. We visited so many beaches on Mahe, Praslin and La Digue and I wouldn't say this was my favourite.
This was because the beauty was spoiled by the large crowds. It was clear that some people only wanted to go to this beach to get the perfect photo so that they could post on social media. There was very few places on the beach with no people. So we stayed to take a couple of photos and had a little walk along the beach before we left to find a more peaceful beach to relax.

I would definitely say to visit the beach as it is unbelievable and so different to any other beach in the world, but if you want to relax then I would suggest going elsewhere.
