Lying along Chevalier Bay on Praslin's north coast, Anse Lazio beach wins visitors over with its ivory sands, cobalt water, giant boulders and restaurants conveniently located nearby. Lazio routinely earns a place among experts' top 10 lists because it feels like a secluded tropical paradise, while the calm waters and abundance of underwater life earn praise from avid snorkelers. Because word has gotten out about Anse Lazio's merits, some recent visitors recommend arrving earlier in the morning or later in the afternoon to avoid crowds.

Even though Lazio's reputation may have stolen its aura of privacy, travelers still say that this beach is a must-see. "If I would have known about this place in advance, we would have just booked our hotel near this place and wouldn't have need[ed] anything else," said one TripAdvisor user.

Anse Lazio sits about 7 miles northwest of Baie Ste. Anne where Praslin's ferry port is found, and can be reached by car, bus or bike from the island's main road. You can access the beach at any time free of charge. For more information, visit the Seychelles Tourism Board's Anse Lazio page.

#1 Anse Volbert (Praslin)

Also known as the Côte d'Or ("Golden Coast"), Anse Volbert earns rave reviews from sun-seekers, swimmers and snorkelers for its sugary white sand and crystal clear water. Although it's one of the island's most popular beaches, Anse Volbert's size (approximately 1½ miles long) means it never feels crowded. "It's not a busy beach but for a good experience, try to go to the right to get away from all the boats," one TripAdvisor user suggested.

Although they admit that Anse Volbert isn't the prettiest of Seychelles' beaches, travelers say that the soft sand and shallow water are ideal conditions for those traveling with children. And the abundance of restaurants and bars close by means you can plan to spend the day there without worrying about going hungry or finding a restroom.
