Explore Anse Lazio from Your Hotel
Regularly voted as one of the top ten beaches in the world, Anse Lazio is high on the list of reasons to visit the Seychelles. Perched right at the northern tip of the Seychelles’ second largest island, Praslin, Anse Lazio is so picturesque it could almost have been designed as the perfect desert island beach. But Anse Lazio is all natural – with soft white sands and water of the most brilliant turquoise, all fringed with luscious green palms.
Where to Stay near Anse Lazio
Anse Lazio is at the end of a winding scenic road about 15 minutes’ drive from Côte d’Or. While there are no hotels immediately on Anse Lazio beach, it’s easy enough to get to no matter where on Praslin you’re staying as the island is only around 20 miles square.
So you could choose a homely guesthouse, a family-friendly self-catering apartment, a modern villa with sea views or a full-on luxury five-star resort, and the delights of Anse Lazio will never be too far away. This renowned beach is also regularly included on tours from the main island of Mahé, so you can experience this must-see sight even if you’re staying elsewhere in the Seychelles.
Relax and Enjoy Anse Lazio
There can be few better places to kick back, relax and breathe deep. Stretch out on the sands for a spot of sun bathing or find a cooler spot in the shade along the treeline. Calm, clear waters make swimming and snorkelling great ways to while away the day. There’s even a designated swimming area patrolled by lifeguards if you’re a nervous swimmer.
Elsewhere on Anse Lazio, the water does get deep quickly and there are sometimes varied currents and waves, so stay in the marked area to be on the safe side. Nearby restaurants are handy for a cooling drink or laidback meal. If the idea of having paradise to yourself appeals, try arriving in the early morning so yours can be the first footprints on the sand.
