About these ratings

Sitting opposite Victoria on Mahé's northwest coast, Beau Vallon is one of the island's most popular beach areas. And for a good reason: The wide shoreline and calm seas make Beau Vallon a great place for both swimming and water sports, including snorkeling, boating, fishing and scuba diving. The area is also surrounded by a wide array of restaurants, hotels and shops, making it a great home base for travelers looking to soak up the rays. Although Beau Vallon exudes a slight resort-area feel, travel experts and recent visitors agree that the beach is worth checking out — especially if you're visiting with kids as there are no strong currents or sharp bits of coral lurking beneath the waves

You won't have to pay to lounge on the sand or hit the waves, but each water sports company features its own rates for equipment rentals and dive excursions. If you're looking to explore beneath the waves, recent visitors recommend diving with Ocean Dream Divers. "I wish to proclaim my deepest gratitude to the fantastic and professional team at Ocean Dream Divers," wrote one TripAdvisor user. "I would define my experience here as VIP diving." The company offers dives that range from around 735 SCR to 1,228 SCR (approximately $60 USD to $100 USD) per person. Equipment rentals will tag an extra few rupees onto your bill.

You can easily get to Beau Vallon from Victoria by bus, car or taxi — the popular beach area is just 3 miles from the Seychellois capital. To find out more about Beau Vallon, visit the Seychelles Tourism Board's Beau Vallon page.
